Negotiation & Self-Advocacy

SALARY NEGOTIATION AFTER JOB LOSS

Is an unexpected job loss in your work history preventing you from showing up confidently and negotiating for your worth at work? One of the biggest myths I hear over and over again about career growth is this: “It’s SO much easier to get a new job while you have a job”.

The same negotiation tactics don’t work for everyone. Finding the right workplace negotiation tool for you starts with understanding and believing in your worth.

IS YOUR FEAR OF MONEY STOPPING YOU FROM ASKING FOR A RAISE?

Transforming your relationship with money is a secret weapon of negotiation. In order to confidently negotiate for more money, or more of what you want in your life, you have to be ready and willing to receive it. You have to remove any roadblocks in your path that are preventing you from allowing more (money, love, abundance, gratitude) into your life. In order to receive more, you have to believe you’re worthy of receiving it!

FIVE WAYS TO NIX FEAR AND NEGOTIATE YOUR NEXT RAISE

When I ask folks what holds them back from asking for a raise, the response I often get is this: fear. Fear of potential negative consequences, like losing a job offer all together or being seen as greedy. So what is it about fear that makes us pump the breaks? When it comes to negotiating for a raise, fear can paralyze us from taking the appropriate action to successfully ask for what we want because we are afraid of the perceived negative consequences.

WHY A ‘NO’ IS BETTER THAN NOT ASKING FOR A RAISE AT ALL

If you haven’t heard the word “no” when asking for a raise, you haven’t actually negotiated. I know, I know – this sounds harsh, right? The biggest fear holding you back from negotiating could very well be hearing the word “no”! But I believe going for “no” is one of the most important negotiation strategies there is, especially for women.
