MAR 23 | From Preparation to Negotiation: Coaching Clients to Peak Interview Performance
We want our clients to have the confidence to be their best selves in an interview – to feel prepared, show up with professionalism, stand out from other candidates, and capitalize on the opportunity to negotiate their top salary.
In this 90-minute session, career industry leaders Elizabeth Craig and Karen James Chopra will share coaching tools you can use to guide clients throughout the interview preparation process.
Participants will walk away with tools to coach clients to their peak interview performance, including:
A coach approach to go beneath the surface and adjust mindset
Processes and checklists to guide preparation and ensure professional presence
Tips for performance in phone, video, and in-person interviews
An outline for creating a rarely used but always effective portable proof portfolio
Proven scripts for gracefully handling salary questions during interviews
If you are looking to launch interviewing coaching services or refresh your approach with a few new tools, this session is for you!
Registration includes access to the live session – Monday, March 23, from 12:00 to 1:30PM US ET – plus lifetime access to the recording, handouts, and tools.
