We start out discussing how it is critical to change your mindset when you finish your training. You have been the toilet paper on someone’s shoe for the last decade and now you’re the prize, so negotiate like it. One of her main points is that you’ll never know what you can get unless you ask. Negotiation isn’t a zero-sum game with a winner and a loser, so there is no reason for it to be an adversarial relationship. It is about finding a way to work together. And think about your priorities – it isn’t just about money.
