This workshop is for women who recognise the importance of being able to negotiate effectively on their own behalf and want to learn how to develop their own strategies.
Negotiation is an essential skill
We've all done it, missed out on more money and great opportunities because we were worried to ask for what we want, didn't know how to ask or were point blank refused.
But it’s not women’s fault they feel too uncomfortable to negotiate on their own behalf when we've been conditioned to feel this way by society since we were born. Research confirms that men are four times more likely than women to negotiate, especially when it comes to their salary. As a result women can lose out on making £600,000 more over their working life(!)
The ability to negotiate was identified by the World Economic Forum as one of the top ten skills you need to succeed in the modern workplace - so it is time to brush up on this essential skill.
Who is this workshop for
This workshop is for self-identifying women who recognise the importance of being able to negotiate effectively on their own behalf and want to learn how to develop their own strategies. Men are welcome to attend to learn how they can be allies to women who are negotiating.
About the workshop
The workshop will be led by She Wins founders Clare and Kate who have designed this workshop especially for women to give them the skills and confidence to negotiate on their own behalf. The key to a successful negotiation is preparation and understanding the potential pitfalls and roadblocks.
During this workshop you'll learn:
• About the social barriers that have held women back in negotiating
• The key principles of negotiation
• The importance of recognising and asking for your full value
• How to frame your first ask and contra offers
• How to gain leverage and deal with difficult questions
This is a practical workshop with plenty of group discussion and exercises for practicing your new negotiation skills so don't expect to just sit and listen! We will provide you with useful templates and take away materials for you to continue learning and practicing.
By the end of this workshop you'll understand the theory of negotiation and be actively looking forward to putting it into practise!
We'll kick off with some wine and cheese (soft drinks and non-dairy nibbles available too), giving you time to meet the other awesome attendees and get to know each other.
We're looking forward to meet you soon!
