044: The High Cost of Failing to Negotiate at Work

If you’re not willing to negotiate, what does that say about you as a leader? Just because you landed the offer doesn’t mean you are done selling yourself.

Let’s talk about getting comfortable with negotiating at work!

In today’s episode, I discuss the cost of failing to negotiate in your career and ways to uplevel your negotiation skills at work so you can build trust, improve relationships, and sell yourself as the standout leader you are. 

Ready to set the tone at work by learning to negotiate?

Let’s go to the show!

I dive into:

  • The BIGGEST costs of failing to negotiate in your career
  • Why negotiating is especially difficult for women (and what to do about it!)
  • The unconscious message you might be sending your employer if you do not negotiate your compensation
  • Something I ALWAYS suggest you do when you are offered your initial compensation (and what it could say about you if you don’t!)
  • Examples of how I negotiated terms in my own career – and what came from it!
  • And so much more!
