Negotiate Like a Boss: How to Be a Fierce Self-Advocate


Gone are the days when negotiating was only for a performance review, job interview or the big pitch. Women push back all day every day: to drive the direction of a change, to say “No,” to voice input on a new initiative or to correct a faulty course. How can you make the most of these conversations—regardless of whether they’re with a peer, direct report or authority figure? Leveraging 5 strategies from her award-winning book, PUSHBACK: How Smart Women Ask--and Stand Up--for What They Want, Selena Rezvani teaches you how to flex your style based on the topic or person with whom you are influencing, manage tradeoffs, and get the “Yes” answer you need.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Tailor their negotiation style by identifying their counterpart’s “gps”.
