WISE Financial Fitness Event – Knowing Your Worth: Take Command of Negotiations
On August 23rd, WISE Twin Cities hosted our annual Financial Fitness event in downtown Minneapolis. This year’s event was titled Knowing Your Worth: Take Command of Negotiations. It featured keynote speaker Valerie Gordon, founder of career and communications strategy firm Commander-in-She.
Valerie started off the night with an interactive and eye-opening activity that showed us the power of our words. She challenged us to re-think the words we use to describe ourselves.
Valerie’s presentation walked us through the steps needed to weave a powerful story about ourselves and the value we create. She taught us how to make the “ask” and what to do when we hear the word “no.”
We left inspired and ready to take charge of our negotiations. Thank you, Valerie, and thank you to The Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot for hosting us.
