You had me at hello.

Negotiating what you need and want in your career is an essential skill, for any emergency medicine physician – well, for anyone, really! So, whether you are in academic or community practice, or something completely unrelated, this episode is for you. We’ve teamed up with Women in PEM to bring you this illuminating interview with Dr. Cherri Hobgood, an emergency physician, expert in negotiations, and founder of the Center for Leadership Life. She takes us through the ins and outs of negotiating, including preparation, tactics, and even reading body language, to help us learn the art of a successful negotiation. 

Do you find negotiations challenging? What strategies have been most successful for you? Tag us on social media, @empulsepodcast, or reach out via email, or through our website, Please encourage your friends and colleagues to listen and share their stories, too!
