Founder & CEO, Take Charge Negotiations™, LLC

Erin Gleason Alvarez

Hi, I’m Erin. I’m a Certified Mediator, negotiation consultant, and attorney. I believe negotiation is one of the most important skills for us to cultivate - whether to support career growth, run a functional business and/or household, or plainly get along with other humans. Negotiation is not some secret art form. That’s why I created Take Charge Negotiations, LLC. You don’t need to go to law school or read a thousand books to be a good negotiator. You have to want to do it and you have to practice. We’re here to support you on that path. Over the past fifteen years, I’ve trained thousands of people on how to approach negotiation as an opportunity, not an obstacle. I’m here to help you too.

Join Us

Becoming a Compass Member will provide you with new resources every week to help keep you grounded, find the positive, and make decisions from a place of confidence and calm.

Here’s What to Look Forward to in October...

Our focus will be positivity

  • Week 1: Our First Class

    Let’s start by talking about how to cultivate positivity, even if you don’t much feel like it. No rose colored glasses here. But studies show that positivity promotes stress reduction, focus, enhanced decision-making abilities and empathy for others – also key factors in successful negotiations.

  • Week 2: Group Coaching Call

    Now that you’ve had some time to mull things over, let’s meet up on Zoom to chat about our experiences, what’s worked and what has been challenging. All group coaching sessions are lead by our founder and CEO.

  • Week 2: Practice Exercises

    We’ll share some exercises for you to consider in approaching conversations, negotiations and decision making with positivity. We’ll also open up our Community page so we can start sharing experiences, challenges and advice together.

  • Week 4: Wrapping Up

    The month concludes with another group coaching session with our CEO, where we’ll talk about take aways from this month’s tasks and a preview of what to expect next month.

And Here’s What We’ll Look at in Future Months...

  • Active listening: staying focused on your conversations with other people - not the ones in your head

  • Visualization: the impact of seeing your success before it is fully realized:

  • Anchoring: ways to stay focused and calm when the pressure is on

  • Goal setting: our step-by-step approach to getting clear on what you really want
