You May Be Leaving Options On the Table – Boost Your Asking Power to Increase Your Possibilities 

Are you asking for what you really want or only asking for what you think you can get?

You may be leaving possibilities on the table: money, dreams, promotions, and opportunities you didn’t even think were options.

Maybe you are already making courageous asks and getting yes’s. But consider this, if you are always getting a yes then could you have gotten more?

Discover the inside secrets that auctioneer’s use to get the ‘yes’ you never knew you could ask for and achieve. In my podcast episode, How to Ask Like an Auctioneer, Dia Bondi, coach, catalyst, and creator of Ask Like an Auctioneer, joins me to share how she helps you to wake up your own superpowers, awaken your own audacity and learn how to Ask like an Auctioneer.

Stop leaving options on the table and start getting yes’s beyond what you expect. Limitless possibilities await if you ask like an auctioneer.


Ask Like An Auctioneer is Dia Bondi’s project aimed at helping a million women ask for more and get it using the mental model, tools, and frameworks from the world of auctioneering.

Dia has some special offerings for the Allowed podcast listeners: 

  • You can reach out to her and book the keynote or the two-hour workshop. She is also so happy to come to organizations and events to bring this kind of content to audiences as far and wide. More more info visit her website,

These are 30-minute one-on-one sessions to jumpstart the next big ask you might have in your career, or to figure out what is an ask you’re not seeing that you could make to help you reach your goals faster.

More About…

Dia Bondi:

For the last 20 years, some of the highest-profile, most extraordinary world leaders, CEOs, philanthropists, visionaries, and innovators have considered Dia Bondi their secret weapon. Over thousands of coaching sessions, she’s been in their corner, behind the curtain, helping them tap into their power and move their businesses forward.

Dia helped Rio de Janeiro secure the 2016 Summer Olympics. She’s worked with Intel, Mozilla, Unilever, Nabisco, P&G, and Progressive Insurance. She’s coached changemakers at the Clinton Global Initiative and the Commonwealth Games Federation. Dia is direct, magnetic, fierce, and insatiably curious. She will always bypass small talk in favor of deep connection.

Dia’s clients are leaders, executives, and influential figures facing a pivotal communications opportunity. In the past they’ve been asked to talk about what they do; now they’re being asked about their vision for the future. Her bespoke coaching prepares them to step on stage in a way they’ve never done before.

In addition to mentoring international leaders, Dia has also taken up the mic as an auctioneer, helping women-led nonprofits raise the money they need to tackle important issues. Her #asklikeanauctioneer program is focused on helping women ask for more in their financial compensation conversations for their services, salaries, and businesses.

Dia may look like a communications coach, but in reality, she’s a catalyst for excellence. She makes high-ranking executives and government officials challenge and share themselves authentically with influential audiences. She shoves people out of their comfort zones, shows them their untapped power, and activates it. She is unapologetically intense and unflinchingly compassionate.

Since her clients are highly visible and unquestionably powerful, Dia is discreet and respectful. Her work succeeds when she’s inspired extraordinary people to live up to their potential. She shines brightest when no one knows she’s been there.

Now Dia is stepping forward to show you how to trust yourself and be compelling when it’s your turn to talk and it matters most (hint: that’s every time). Because if you wait until you realize you need her, it’s already too late.
