How to be a Fierce Self Advocate image

How to be a Fierce Self Advocate

Workshop: Gone are the days when self-advocating was only for a high-stakes conversation. We advocate all day every day—to negotiate a more realistic deadline, to get better terms from a vendor—even to resolve a standstill on a team. In this session, Selena Rezvani teaches you how to amplify your voice by coming to work prepared for obvious and less obvious negotiation scenarios. Using an easy-to-apply system, you’ll walk away with techniques to prepare for, maneuver through, and “close” a high-stakes conversation – and reduce blockers to your success. Discover how to recognize opportunities to back yourself and get the respect you deserve, while maintaining a brand as a positive team player.
