The Real Financial Literacy Program is a 10-hour program-- six hours of confidence building and skills necessary to prepare for successful salary negotiation and employment level; one hour of traditional financial literacy in budgeting and money management while unemployed; and three hours of hard skill training in salary determination and negotiation.
What sets this project apart from other programs are all its unique components. The preparation component builds women's confidence, assertiveness, leadership, integrity and interpersonal skills using a strength-based approach; and enhances understanding of the importance of salary negotiation to achieve job and life success, of negotiating from a strength-based place, developing career goals, seeing how to ask for a fair salary in an open, honest, and direct manner and being honest and ethical in dealings with people while negotiating.
Budget and money management uses the preparation of a budget as a means of gaining and exercising control over money while unemployed; develops a candid, realistic assessment of one's sources of income, resources, essential expenses and non-essential spending; and ties budgeting to minimal salary and job level needs--a key to job stability and retention.
Salary and job level negotiation teaches the nuts-and-bolts of negotiation: how to determine one's worth in the marketplace for the job she seeks at the location of that job; the language of persuasion to convey effectively one's experience, qualifications, work ethic; and the strategy of when, where and how to negotiate for fair pay and job level. The workshop ends with participants applying all these newly acquired skills in active role-play to examine their effectiveness in persuasion and negotiation strategy while dealing with a prospective employer.
