Lucy studied business & social sciences at Cambridge & the University of Chicago, where she was introduced to negotiation theory: the perfect intersection of her favourite topics!

She began her career serving corporate & government clients at McKinsey & Company, before launching the pioneering Australian sexual wellness brand NORMAL, and negotiating a successful exit from its venture-backed parent company, Eucalyptus.

 

A word from Lucy: 

"Learning to negotiate was a huge unlock for me¬†- especially working in male-dominated fields, where the ‚Äėgender negotiation gap‚Äô can compound existing inequalities.

I was once described as negotiating "like a Russian accountant" by the (Russian accountant) who just hired me, which I wear as a badge of honour. But seriously - I'm really glad I learned to advocate for myself, and my company.

Think of this course as the perfect introduction to negotiating for yourself as an individual contributor - there’s no knowledge assumed, but you’ll come out feeling confident to negotiate job offers, raises, promotions & other conditions."

Why learn to negotiate?

 

Negotiations surround us every day, and learning to negotiate has a huge return on investment over your career. 

  • Understand the hidden logic:¬†Learn negotiation theory to help you analyse the issues, plan strategies and handle different styles.¬†
  • Negotiation is an essential 'meta skill':¬†A huge number of work situations are negotiations in disguise - from project management and roadmaps, to hiring, promotions, partnerships, fundraises, contracts, sales and more.
  • It takes time to find a style that works for you:¬†Lots of resources give one-size-fits-all advice, but understanding how our personalities, backgrounds & experiences shape our instincts - and managing how we self-sabotage - is essential.
  • Get results¬†and¬†maintain relationships:¬†Learn how to find win-wins, manage difficult personalities and strengthen your rapport - all while getting a great outcome.
  • Negotiation is a 'muscle':¬†Reading negotiation advice is very different to putting it into practice - good negotiators develop their style by combining theory with practice and feedback.
  • Replace your anxiety with a proven process:¬†Learn a¬†system you can apply to analysing, preparing and responding throughout every negotiation in your role.

"This course delivered in more ways than I expected. It was dynamically structured and so thoughtfully designed. I was able to genuinely experience the emotions and physical reactions in simulated negotiations, and notice the changes and shifts each week. Lucy creates a space that is intimate, candid, enriching and delightful - and demystifies & breaks down the art of negotiation in such a practical and valuable way."

"This course is an excellent investment! It exposed me to the skill of negotiation in a practical and approachable way. The course is so much more than just theory. It takes online learning to a new level by providing insights and lessons about the side of negotiation so often forgotten about in books - the emotional barriers of executing your negotiation. The course contains a great mix of tactics, personal experience, practice sessions and learning directly from experts. Highly recommend!"
