Today’s conversation is all about getting that raise that you deserve! We’re joined by Alex Carter who is a Clinical Professor of Law and the Director of the Mediation Clinic at Columbia Law School. She is also a leading trainer on negotiation and mediation for many from the private and public sectors, including the United Nations, U.S. courts and federal agencies, and private corporations such as Bloomberg, Amazon, and Microsoft. So that means Alex is more than qualified to have written the book, Ask for More: Ten Questions to Negotiate Anything. Listen and learn why negotiating isn’t adversarial in nature, overcoming fear and anxiety when discussing pay, why asking questions is better than arguing, tangible and intangible benefits you can fight for, the best time to negotiate a severance package, and so much more during this invaluable conversation with Alex!

I felt she had a canned pitch and could hardly listen.
Sorry you felt that way, Kay! I thought that Alex had some killer info for lots of folks hoping to make more.
