By focusing on negotiation, Negotiating Women, Inc. helps women and business to maximize opportunities. We enable women to recognize that performance doesn’t speak for itself – success in business takes more than just delivering great results.
To make this easier to understand, we coined the term, “The Tiara Syndrome”. Of course, we were delighted that Sheryl Sandberg mentioned it in her best-selling book, Lean In. So what are the symptoms of The Tiara Syndrome? They include working hard, delivering excellent results and hoping the tight people notice and place a tiara on your head! Although that can happen, it doesn’t happen very often! So although hope is not a strategy, negotiation is.
So, through negotiation keynotes, negotiation training, and consulting to organizations, we provide practical advice to help women at every stage of their careers. We help women to claim their value and create conditions of career success. Because we don’t believe that women can solve the problems alone — both men and women must be involved. Leaders must examine the cultural aspects of the workplace to identify issues that create barriers for women.
We have a dual mission related to women and business:
- To provide women with the resources—conceptual frameworks as well as practical skill sets—to succeed in the workplace.
- To help organizations create cultures that value and can profit from the diverse talents women bring.
