I'm usually confident, but I fall to pieces in a negotiation. Louis gave me actionable pointers to ask for the salary I deserved, from identifying my value to settling on a number and making the ask.

Have hard conversations
I came to Louis seeking advice on how to navigate a difficult professional conversation. He helped me organize my thoughts and identify my core points so I could communicate them in a way that felt natural to me. The convo ended up going really well.
