This executive-focused course is designed to prepare today’s leaders for success in optimizing all aspects of compensation with prospective employers. By the end of our four-session program, attendees will better understand the personas at the opposite end of the negotiating table, their motivations and expectations, and how to steer conversations towards desirable outcomes.

The first three workshops will go in-depth on topics including understanding market value, navigating the personas involved, introducing and substantiating specific compensation asks, defending those asks with data, and unlocking the mystery of stock options and equity types. The final course will include live role-plays and mock negotiations with different hiring personas.
