If you need strategies for your work situation now, let’s talk this week. As founder of WorkOptions, I’ve been coaching career women on negotiating flexible work options since the mid-1990s, and on pay raises and salary packages since 2006.
My proven method: short-term “situational coaching” by phone or video call that moves you swiftly towards answers and action steps. No long-term coaching or contract involved.

❝I never thought of that.❞
In two decades of advising people, I’ve heard that line often enough to confirm the research that says women are more inclined than men to accept the status quo and not consider (or even think of) all their negotiable options.
My Strengths as an Advisor Are My Abilities to:
- Create custom solutions to match individual needs
- Devise strategies for challenging situations and finding ways to overcome obstacles
- Craft scripts to foster agreement from the other people involved in the situation
The second one is the biggest challenge, but I have a knack for it. In negotiating terms, my ability to clearly assess my clients’ negotiating “leverage” and then favorably frame their “positioning” helps them get the result they want (or closer to it).
I seem to have an uncanny ability to clearly see the agendas of the people (usually managers and co-workers) my clients are dealing with (“That’s it exactly!”). Then I work with them on solutions to address the issues (“What a great idea. I hadn’t thought of that.”) to achieve a favorable outcome.
Strategy + Script: Know What to Do and Say
But beyond the strategy, I’m usually able to construct a short script which strongly supports the positive positioning we’ve established to resolve the communication or negotiation issue.
The script is a spontaneous flash of composition, yet surprisingly spot-on for the situation. (“I love the way you worded that!”) This happens at almost every client session.
So during our time together, not only will we come up with tactics and talking points to address your issue, it’s likely you’ll get a short script of exactly what to say!
When working with clients, I use a combination of advicing and coaching (I was certified as a Career Management Coach in 2005 through Career Coach Academy).
