Event Details


Thursday, June 30, 2011 

Fess Parker's DoubleTree Resort • Santa Barbara, California

Retreat Trainers: Victoria Pynchon, JD, LLM  •  Lisa Gates, CPCC • and special guest expert Gloria Feldt, author of "No Excuses, Nine Ways Women Can Change the Way We Think About Power."

You’re a smart, successful woman. You know what it takes to be at the top of your profession. So why are you settling for almost? Why do you freeze up when you face leadership opportunities? And why do you always wind up asking for less than you deserve? Especially when it would result in more respect, more access, more money and more freedom? 

The truth is, almost every woman feels this way. We’re trained not to ask for what we deserve, and all our lives we pay the price.  


You will leave the retreat with a Strategic Plan for eliminating your personal wage gap, and achieving your leadership goals.


For many women, power is a four-letter word. Yet when women have access to the halls of government, land in numbers on corporate boards, and consistently generate the salaries and fees we fairly ask for, we do great things for our families, our communities and our world. In other words, the quality of life changes—not just for you, for everyone.

  • At our 2011 She Negotiates Leadership Retreat, we’ll show you how to move past your fear of asking and learn breakthrough skills that reward your strengths, accomplishments and leadership.
  • You’ll learn in your bones how to overcome your fears of being labeled rude, bossy and bitchy—and instead show the world you’re confident, considerate, and worthy of respect. 

You’ll find a negotiating style that matches who you are—so you can ease into conversations that lead to “yes” in your career and in your life.


  • Develop powerful relationships and conversations that will take you to the next level of leadership.
  • Understand the connection between negotiation and conflict.
  • Diagnose your knee-jerk responses to conflict and learn new skills that help you ease into powerful conversations for your own benefit.
  • Learn to sing your own praises in a way that inspires and motivates others.
  • Accurately name and claim your value in the hands of your market.
  • Recognize and defuse adversarial tactics.
  • Ask questions that blow the lid off of whatever might be standing in the way of your powerful participation in your own success.
  • Use power without provoking.

She Negotiates Training and Consulting

She Negotiates Training and Consulting is lead by Lisa Gates, trainer and certified coach, and Victoria Pynchon, lawyer, mediator and author.

Our mission is to empower women to become powerful askers and confident actors in their own lives and chosen professions, as well as leaders collaboratively solving the challenges of the global economy.

We believe when women are empowered to lead and given the tools and support to do so, they make choices that change history. We start with the pocketbook because economic power is political power. And without political power, we have no voice. No presence. No platform. No credibility.

The women we teach improve every area of their lives—from salaries and fees to relationships—and use their newfound skills to raise the bar for all women and girls.
