Kate Bohner (Opening Address) with Mina Malik Violaine Galland – TNI – Negotiation Class
Violaine Galland

Ladies, it’s time to take control of your negotiations. You’ve already got the inner strengths—you’ve just got to learn how to use them. Violaine Galland will show you just how to take hold of your powerful female qualities (picking up important signals, great planner, showing empathy…) and use them to help you achieve the outcomes you want.

It’s time to stop fearing the word “No” and to start becoming the bold negotiator that’s already inside of you. In her speech, Violaine will share her proven three-step process and exactly how you can harness your innate skills to work in your favor. She and her colleague have watched hundreds of hours of live negotiation unfold, noting patterns and differences between males and females. It’s these observations that Violaine wants to share with you, along with the right tactics to capitalize on your strengths so you can be bold in negotiation. Are you ready to get your edge?

Ora Shtull, executive coach/author

How important is your Emotional IQ when you’re a woman negotiating? You don’t want to lose your temper, burst into tears, or sink into a funk while negotiating, but what about positive emotions? Can a positive, enthusiastic or calm attitude have a favorable impact on your negotiation? Coach and author, Ora Shtul discusses many common assumptions about women and negotiating with a special focus on the impact of emotions on the outcome of a negotiation.

Moderator: Kimberly Weisul, Inc. Magazine

Certain fields (aerospace, professional sports, high-tech, the financial sector) remain dominated by men at the top—and often in the trenches too. Because senior leadership tends to be largely male, and these men perpetuate a stereotype of the masculine-identified qualities required to become leaders (not to mention promoting people who most closely resemble themselves), cracking the door open in these fields has continued to be tough. Inc. Magazine’s, Kimberly Weisul, will lead a panel that discusses the particular challenges women face in a male-dominated workplace and introduces some of the strategies women find helpful as they try to stay afloat—and keep swimming.

Rosina Racioppi, President and CEO, Women Unlimited, Inc.

Dr. Racioppi, using her 25 years of experience helping leading organizations attract, retain and develop female talent, will pinpoint three proven strategies for bolstering a woman’s career. First, she’ll share insights on how and why women need to assess and, as needed, evolve their view of themselves. Second, Dr. Racioppi will highlight the way to build effective networks…ones that are defined by success, not numbers. Then, based on her independent research, she will discuss how women can develop honest mentoring relationships that provide them with needed feedback, often missing in their interactions with their managers.

This “triple header” of proven strategies will result in participants leaving the session with actionable approaches for achieving their career goals, for increasing their contributions to their companies and for improving their ability to negotiate for themselves and for their organizations.
