Own Your Tech Career Growth

Negotiate for Peace and Profit
Elizabeth Goueti (Licensed Attorney and Negotiation Coach, Avinu Consulting)

With the right tools, individuals are able to negotiate at work and home and even resolve conflict in their personal relationships. This session will delve into what real-life negotiation looks like and why that's important. It will explore why professionals of all levels should mindfully negotiate in all areas of their lives and offer attendees a framework for how to assess their actions for future success.
