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 hardest things you may have to navigate in your career is losing a job. Even if you receive advanced notice that your position is being eliminated and a severance agreement, losing a job is a major life event. Job loss affects people both psychologically and financially, and the question I receive from clients who have gone through this is: “How do I build confidence after losing my job and negotiate for future success?”
If you haven’t heard the word “no” in a negotiation, 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.
I have so much to be grateful for in 2019 and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of our community. I am so grateful I can celebrate a year of abundance, challenges, and firsts, as well as shine a bright light on Own Your Worth® clients who have taken bold action to create major achievements in their lives and careers.
The million dollar negotiation question is this: “What am I really worth?!” Let’s face it, what you really want to know before you ask for a raise is “what am I really worth”, right? Wanting to know what your worth is the biggest thing I see holding clients back from asking for a raise. They’re afraid they’ll ask for “too much” or “not enough”. They’re afraid they’ll be asked to justify the numbers and won’t know how to prove their case.
I’m celebrating! I’m about to become a Mom! While this is a very exciting time in my life, it’s also a time of uncertainty. So many changes are on the horizon and it’s yet another leap into the unknown. As a business owner, the pressure I put on myself (and feel from society) to have this “working mom” thing all figured out – before the baby’s arrival – is real. I know many women in corporate feel the same way.
If you’ve done your homework and you’re ready to be paid fairly for your contribution, it always starts with your “ask”. Depending on the review cycle, budget approval process, and current circumstances within your organization, it may take a couple of months to see a raise, but setting the stage and getting your bosses buy in at your annual review is as good of a time as any to start the conversation. It’s important you know what you’re up against, your bosses perspective, and how long you may potentially have to wait.
