Event Description

Topic 1:  Smart Salary Negotiations

Negotiating is both an art and a science. This will be a very practical, experiential and fun workshop where you’ll learn how, when and why to negotiate. Our clients are often able to negotiate for significantly higher salaries and arrange for a wide variety of other benefits.  So come and learn how to negotiate more strategically and get more of what you want!

 The presentation will have Exercises and Q&A opportunities weaved into the whole presentation so that it’s highly experiential.

 After this presentation, you will:

  • Understand why negotiating is critical
  • Know how to prep for win-win negotiations
  • Learn what pitfalls to avoid
  • Be equipped to negotiate much more effectively and painlessly


Topic 2: How To Read And Lead With Integrity

Learn how you – and others – make decisions about work, relationships, and personal lives so you can have more influence and help them more effectively.

Save time, money and energy; eliminating wasted communication that is ineffective or counterproductive and learn to give others what they really want and need.

In this fast-paced 45-minute presentation, you’ll learn how to apply the 5 personal needs to any situation, personal or professional, to make your communication.

More economical - eliminate wasted words that don’t matter to friends and clients.

More effective - know what they care about most and what causes them stress.

More fun - enjoy your relationships more by knowing how to easily please the other person.
