Kick off the new year with some professional development: learn to negotiate.
Many of us negotiate every day with our parents, our partners, our friends, and our co-workers. Maybe even at the car dealership. But when it comes to negotiating a new salary or raise, our skills (or courage) desert us. This workshop, presented by local coach and consultant Amanda Shaffer, will help you understand your negotiating style and provide some practical strategies and skills that will help you prepare for negotiation.
Please take a short survey before January 18 to provide input about this event.
