Salary Negotiation, Negotiating Tips for Women, and Your Negotiation Questions Answered – Blog Talk Radio

– Posted in: career coaching, negotiate and close the offer, Salary tip

In the latest episode of the SixFigureStart Career Coaching radio show on Blog Talk Radio, I answered questions about negotiation, specifically questions from the Women’s Leadership Conference organized by the Barnard Athena Center and Columbia Business School. In this episode, Caroline answers questions on:

  1. If negotiation is a weakness, what framework can I use to get better at it?
  2. How to negotiate better for yourself – when you’re good at it, but for other people?
  3. How do you not sound desperate when you’re negotiating for an offer you really want?
  4. How do you maintain relationships while still negotiating?
  5. How do you keep the focus on value and not sound mercenary?
  6. How is salary negotiation different from other types of negotiation?
  7. What do you do when you’re asked for a number?
  8. How do you know if a company can afford the salary you want?
  9. What is a good comeback to the “We don’t have the budget” excuse?
  10. When do you renegotiate your compensation after you’ve already been working somewhere else?
  11. What tips do you have for women specifically? How does gender influence negotiation?

Thanks for all of the questions and interaction! Negotiation is something to be practiced and learned actively — it’s not just a question of you have it or you don’t.
