In 20 years as a communications coach, Dia has worked with VC backed Founders, CEOs, and leaders in social impact, enterprise technology, and beyond. Dia has helped global leaders craft messaging and communications to present in front of the United Nations, and was on the team that secured Rio de Janeiro's bid to host the 2016 Olympic Games. In that work, Dia noticed that we ask in a way that holds us back from maximizing the opportunity of each negotiation.
She's here to change that and help you ask for more and get it.
In this course, you’ll get a chance to explore what happens when you plan to ask big. When you explore and understand what happens when you plan to ask big, you can navigate it with more control and stop doing what so many of us do: lowball ourselves and leave money and opportunity on the table.
Goal: Don’t let what’s been holding you back stop you from getting more.
Everyone has a ZOFO, a “Zone of Freaking Out.” It’s that overwhelmed and anxious feeling you get when you're taking risks.
The reason accomplished and impressive people continue to succeed is that they’ve figured out how to navigate the ZOFO efficiently and effectively.
Ask Like An Auctioneer will help you:
Explore what’s holding you back
Learn to confidently navigate your own Zone Of Freaking Out (ZOFO)
Make the asks that accelerate reaching your goals
This is a short, powerful course can change your career, business, and life through one courageous Ask.
