MAR 23 | From Preparation to Negotiation: Coaching Clients to Peak Interview Performance

We want our clients to have the confidence to be their best selves in an interview – to feel prepared, show up with professionalism, stand out from other candidates, and capitalize on the opportunity to negotiate their top salary.

In this 90-minute session, career industry leaders Elizabeth Craig and Karen James Chopra will share coaching tools you can use to guide clients throughout the interview preparation process.

Participants will walk away with tools to coach clients to their peak interview performance, including:

  • A coach approach to go beneath the surface and adjust mindset
  • Processes and checklists to guide preparation and ensure professional presence
  • Tips for performance in phone, video, and in-person interviews
  • An outline for creating a rarely used but always effective portable proof portfolio
  • Proven scripts for gracefully handling salary questions during interviews

If you are looking to launch interviewing coaching services or refresh your approach with a few new tools, this session is for you!

Registration includes access to the live session – Monday, March 23, from 12:00 to 1:30PM US ET – plus lifetime access to the recording, handouts, and tools.

CTL Associate Call

In this CTL Associate Call, our CTL Board will be leading a discussion about how we as career service providers can "compete" as our field shifts. We'll talk about competing with large organizations that are starting to offer more services (like LinkedIn's new interview coaching and resume review services) ...
AND, for those in organizations and in private practice, how you can incorporate new technologies like AI coaching into your work and communicate your value above and beyond these types of tools.

The call is open to all CTL Associates and is a way to help you stay current, learn some new tricks, and share some of your own wealth of information. CTL Associates, watch for an email from Marie Zimenoff with call-in details.
