Leadership Skill Spotlight: Negotiation Skills
The June WILpower session helped participants hone their negotiation skills and armed them with valuable skills and tips for their next salary negotiation or promotion ask. In these informative sessions, facilitated by Sue Bunnell, Kim Keating, and Kristi Royse, participants were coached to spot, and then quickly debunk, unfounded fears about the risks of negotiating. Participants mapped out ways to research and determine their own wants and needs, so that when negotiating, they would be clear about whether an offer meets their parameters or not – proactive, not reactive. Then participants walked though preparing themselves emotionally to be confident in their ask, and planning the timing for the highest possible chance of success.
