Individual Consulting

You’re wicked smart. You’ve got the chops, the curiosity and the courage to lead in a cutting-edge STEM field. You’re as qualified as the next . . . well . . . guy. But that guy is out-earning you, leaping up the ladder while you’re still jockeying to speak in male-heavy meetings.
We’re urging you to go after what you want, and we’re able to equip you with the negotiation skills to get it.

Listing of Services

There’s an art and science to getting what you want.

Salaries, pay raises, job descriptions, lab equipment, a corner office. It’s called negotiation, and sadly most of us haven’t been taught this skill. But you’re doing it everyday, when you negotiate what to binge watch on Netflix, where to order takeout, or who gets the parking spot in a crowded lot.

We’ll help you refine those skills.

And we don’t mean merely how to “ask” better. We’ve got research-supported skills advice that will make you an expert negotiator so you can take your career to the next level. 

We’re going to work with you to develop new skills to confidently maneuver your male-dominated workplaces.
