Fearless Negotiation on The Driven Woman Podcast

In this lively convo, Diann and I talk about the 5 blindspots that cause women to settle for less than they want in negotiations, and how to get comfortable going from the minimum level to the dignified level to the generous level. We talk about feminine conditioning, why negotiating like a man just won’t work for most women, and how we can use empathy to create better outcomes for both sides, instead of allowing empathy to be used against us.

Fearless Negotiation on the Life With Soul Podcast

In this episode Melissa and I have an incredibly inspiring conversation that highlights so much goodness when it comes to how women behave, the social conditioning that has shaped our actions – both in and outside of the boardroom – and how we approach negotiation with ourselves, our families and our professional relationships.

Fearless Negotiation and Coffee with Genny B

As women, we were raised to be kind, empathetic, and humble. These are great qualities to have, but they can keep us from asking for what we know we’re worth, especially in negotiation.

We talk about my Fearless Negotiation workshops and the blind spots that we need to watch out for.

Finding Joy in Change on the Get Your Goat Podcast

In conversation with Peggie Koenig and Catherine Gryba, I share about a new chapter in my life that has “lit me up from within”. I talk about a period of loss and fear and how it led to branding and marketing myself– something I never had to do in my career as a public servant. My new focus is coaching and mentoring women in the art of negotiation, something I have had to develop as a skill for myself.
