WiPN Philadelphia & WiPN NJ | How to Be a Fierce Self-Advocate

Join WiPN Philadelphia and WiPN NJ on Women’s Equality Day to hear speaker, Selena Rezvani, an award-winning columnist and author of two best-selling books, Pushback: How Smart Women Ask—and Stand Up—for What They Want and The Next Generation of Women Leaders. Selena will teach us how to ramp up our advocacy skills – and slay the day!  Learn influencing tips for negotiating your needs by framing your requests for value, leveraging your network, and overcoming others’ resistance.

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.

Register here in advance.
