Don’t leave money on the table.
Negotiating your salary doesn’t have to be so stressful.
It’s really easy to leave money on the table. Why? If you’re like most people, even the thought of negotiating for a better salary (or better ate) makes you nervous. You might not know how much to ask for. Or when is the best time to do it. Or maybe you don’t feel like you’re truly worth more.
There’s lots of excuses to choose from – but let’s choose something else. To learn to negotiate!
This type of coaching is designed to teach you how. We’ll get you to a place where you’re feeling confident and ready to avoid the traps that many of us fall into. And, yes, there will be plenty of time to practice.
We suggest starting at least 2-3 coaching sessions for our salary negotiation clients.
We will spend the first coaching session learning what is behind your hesitancy to negotiate and how to reframe it in a way that makes sense to you. We will spend time determining your “number” and how to ask for what you’re worth. We’ll also decide when is a good time for you to bring the topic up and when and how to have the actual negotiation. Self-employed? This applies to you as well. You’re negotiating rates all the time!
We will also begin to cover proven “tricks” and ready responses for the negotiation. You will be given homework after this first session to ensure what you learned “sets in”.
We can then spend the second session brainstorming together how to approach the negotiation and tricky topics that come up. You will be coached specific to your career, industry and the job you are aiming for. You will be given homework after this second session so that you can practice the techniques on your own and strengthen your stories and examples.
The third session can be devoted specifically to practice to strengthen and solidify what was learned in the first two sessions.
