We’ll reach out to set up a 15-minute pre-call where we’ll discuss your objectives and decide whether to meet in person, on the phone, or on Skype. In person meetings take place at Grind Workspaces, 1216 Broadway (at 30th Street), New York, NY.
You’ll receive a service agreement to sign and return, along with an invoice. Payment is due on the day of your session. We accept payments through Venmo and checks. Sorry, no credit cards at this time. For international clients only, we accept PayPal.
On the day of your session, we’ll use your personalized workbook to get crystal clear on your objectives, identify what research you need to do and how to do it, plan your negotiation strategy, think through your counterpart’s point of view, and use the Ask For It framework to plan your ask. If appropriate, we’ll also cover gender specific strategies.
If you still have questions after our meeting, you’re welcome to reach out anytime to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After your negotiation, we’ll set up a 15-minute debrief call where you’ll describe how it went, ask any follow up questions and share any feedback.
can you guarantee that I'll get a raise / promotion / offer?
No, we can’t — but let’s be honest, you knew that anyway! What we can promise is that we will support you through your planning process, give you the very best research-backed strategies for success and answer as many follow up questions as you need.
While we do not offer refunds for coaching sessions, we are committed to giving you outstanding guidance and support. If you have any concerns or follow up questions as your situation develops, reach out immediately. We are here to serve you.

where are you located?
We are located in New York, NY. We meet with NYC-based clients at Grind Workspaces, 1216 Broadway (at 30th Street). We work with clients in person and virtually across the country and around the world.
i've never negotiated before, is coaching right for me?
Yes! You’ve come to the right place. We'll guide you every step of the way.
i'm an experienced professional, can you help people at my level?
Yes! Your asks may be bigger, but we’ll apply the same essential principles to your negotiation strategy.
can't i just learn this stuff on the internet for free?
Sure you can. But you’ll have to hunt around for credible sources, read through a ton of stuff that’s not relevant to your situation and figure out how to deal with conflicting information. You won’t get personal guidance that’s specific to what you’re going through, and you won’t have anyone to ask questions or get support from. If you’re looking for general information, we’ve got tons of articles on the blog and in our emails.
I need to negotiate something that’s not job-related. Can you still help me?
Yes! Negotiation is about approaching challenges with a creative problem solving mindset. Your challenge doesn’t need to be about your job for these principles to apply. Please reach out so we can discuss your specific situation.
