professional goal setting, or general professional development.

Get support for anything from making the strongest possible case for a promotion, to navigating maternity leave, to practicing how to avoid answering a question about your salary history.

I used to worry about things after the negotiation, but thanks to my work with Lelia I’m not worried about the relationship or thinking, ‘Did I get everything?’ My husband told me this is the first time in a long time he’s heard me say ‘I’m really happy with how that went.’

The negotiation process felt so natural. I walked away from the negotiation feeling like “this is a great deal.”

Case Studies

CT reached out prior to an interview for a job she was totally jazzed about. With interview and negotiations support from Gowland, LLC, she successfully

  • Changed careers
  • Avoided the salary history question
  • Reconsidered the salary range she requested based on data specific to her new field, increasing it by $10,000
  • Negotiated the package she wanted including a signing bonus

Now earning $25,000 more annually in her new position, plus bonuses, CT says "By working with Lelia, I learned my value and unapologetically negotiated the terms of a new position that exceeded my expectations."

KL was in the midst of a stressful transitional period in her career.  With a one hour session divided between one-on-one phone support and written feedback on a statement announcing her transition, KL successfully

  • Stepped back and recognized the larger impact the transition was having on her life
  • Understood and effectively used her opportunities for leverage
  • Identified strategies for specific next steps both professionally and personally

After her session with Gowland, LLC, KL shared, "Without Lelia's guidance, I would have taken a purely tactical approach and missed several important components that ultimately resulted in a better outcome."

After just one meeting with Lelia, I was honestly able to turn every concern I had into an opportunity by the time I got to the negotiating table.

Through my work with Gowland, LLC, I was prepared, confident and able to demonstrate I was qualified for the promotion and why my salary ask was realistic and reasonable. I asked for more and I got it!
