Strategic Conversations Online Course Way More than Just Negotiation Training, It's Career RX

Published on by Lisa Gates.

It's crazy that doing a killer job alone doesn’t launch people into the positions and places they deserve. It is a huge bummer that asking for what you want sometimes feels selfish and networking feels like bragging. And it's seriously astonishing that so many incredible professionals aren’t aware of their worth, let alone how to get compensated for it.

Let's Change All That...

The primary goal of this course is to help you recognize the daily opportunities you have to negotiate, to solve everyday issues and problems, and to increase your value to your employer or business. To that end we'll focus on two types of negotiation: problem solving and salary negotiation.

What Sets Our Course Apart from the Rest

The first few exercises covered in the classroom center around YOU. Your career. Your aspirations. Where you've been and where you're headed. The stories that define you and the people who make up your influence posse.

This exploration and goal setting from the inside out will anchor your experience throughout the course, and bring purpose and intention to the negotiation work.

We come together in four live conference calls to learn—and practice what you learn. And in between calls you'll get access to our private, online classroom for homework, reading, videos and connecting with other participants. 

We bring together leadership development practices with the strategies and tactics of mutual benefit negotiation so that you can sink your teeth into practical tools that will get you influencing, networking, and leading with drop-dead confidence and enviable success. Sounds pretty great, right?

Some Breakthrough Things You'll Do in this Course:

  • Work through a 10-step strategic planning process for career success.
  • Assess your strengths and accomplishments and develop stories that communicate your undeniable, unique value and contribution.
  • Explore social triggers that can sabotage your bargaining outcomes.
  • Learn the vocabulary of interest-based negotiation and connect it to the conversations you're already having every day.
  • Use competitive tactics when necessary without breaking social norms.
  • Learn strategies for resolving conflict and improving the effectiveness of teams.
  • Explore the social science of negotiation, from cognitive bias to principles of influence, so you can cultivate key alliances.

Be prepared to succeed, and to make your investment in this course pay off before the end of the course (some would call that a guarantee).


Who this Course is for:

  • Women who want to ascend to the next level, remove the barriers to success, and deal with the pesky double bind cultural issues (you know, "don't be bossy, but don't be a wimp" or "don't be selfish, but don't be a doormat").
  • Women who are engaged in their work and passionate about it—whether you're an employee or run a business of your own.
  • Work teams, affinity groups, women's initiatives and even mastermind groups who know that learning to negotiate is key to your personal and professional aspirations.


Very Important Details:

  • The weekly conference call sessions are supported by a private online classroom for doing homework. 
  • Your homework will consist of reading, viewing videos and doing exercises. Expect to spend 30 minutes to an hour in between sessions.
  • This is not a talking head snoozefest webinar! Prepare to participate in the practice activities and scenarios in each call.
  • Please plan to attend every session. Clear you schedule. Each call will be recorded, but you'll gain more by being there in person.
