Webinar Recap - Negotiating for Yourself and Your Organization

The co-founder of Ask For It will introduce participants to key theories in negotiation and highlight some common negotiation misperceptions and obstacles. You will leave with fresh insight and actionable knowledge to help you in your next negotiation, whether you’re advocating for yourself or your organization.

She’ll guide you through the following questions:

  • How can I effectively prepare?

  • What should I consider beforehand that could give me an advantage?

  • What are the most effective ways to frame my ask?

Improving your negotiation skills can help you move forward in your career or make more in salary, but it also benefits your organization, your grantees and your colleagues. If you want to be a change making leader, you need the skills to make the best deals for all parties involved. Negotiation isn't just about salary. What if you really knew how to get what you want?
