Many women feel they could do better in negotiation situations. They say they feel uncomfortable,  asking for what they want, finding it hard to push back against power tactics, and often take the first ‘no’ as an answer.

  • Do you feel intimidated by power tactics in negotiations?
  • Do you feel uncomfortable to ask for what you want?
  • Do you leave money on the table because you’ve been too ‘nice’?
  • Do you negotiate better for others than for yourself?

These are familiar issues for many professional and entrepreneurial women when they negotiate. It may leave you with the feeling you have not made the best of the opportunity. What can you do to easily improve this and get the results you want?

During this fun and interactive PWN Lunch & Learn event, Iris Dorreboom from Women & Negotiating will give you a hands-on experience of the strategies you need to be at your best as a negotiator.

  • Learn about gender differences in negotiation and why they are not what you think. (Spoiler alert: they are not baked in at birth).
  • Experience what really happens when we negotiate – the internal story of expectations, assumptions, values, habits and how they shape your actions and determine your results.
  • Practice what it is like to negotiate with confidence.
  • Experience how even small adaptations may have a large positive impact on your negotiation effectiveness. 

You will leave with:

Immediately applicable negotiating skills that will greatly improve your negotiating results

Knowing how to find your confidence in negotiations, and in other situations of unequal power

Format of the workshop:

The workshop will be highly interactive. After a short introduction we will immediately start with your own personal case to experience real time how you can successfully achieve your goals with negotiation.

In order to get the most out of this workshop, we recommend that you think beforehand of a recent case where you felt your negotiation skills were not at their best.


For participating in this workshop, Iris Dorreboom offers you a substantial discount on a one-on-one coaching session. (Normal fee: € 250- per hour. Workshop participants pay only €100- per hour). Individual coaching guarantees you start applying the lessons learned and helps you gain confidence and mastery in negotiating.
