It’s about shared success, NOT winning

In our last episode, we spoke with negotiations expert and founder of the Center for Leadership, Dr. Cheri Hobgood, about the art of a good negotiation. This week, we’ve partnered with Women in PEM again to explore how negotiations can play out in the real world of emergency medicine. Dr. Selena Hariharan returns to share her personal experience and Dr. Elizabeth Alpern offers some concrete advice on how to prepare for an interview, read a contract, and make the outcome of the negotiation beneficial to all parties. It’s all about time, money, and power!
