Have you ever felt like you’re in a ‘no-win’ situation?
For me, it was the day that I interviewed for a job that I didn’t *really* want? but that I *did* need.
I’d hated my job for two years and was finally at the end of my tether.
I’d decided that I needed to move and that it needed to be NOW.
So here I was, interviewing for a job that I was over-qualified for – and that they wanted to pay me peanuts to do.
It felt like a no win situation.
I was frustrated.
But I interviewed well and they offered me the position.
I sat back and breathed for a second.
And then opened my mouth to have a bold conversation?
Negotiation is going to come up at various points of your career; whether it’s on getting that promotion, negotiating on salary expectations or even negotiating your workload.
That’s why on this episode of Leading the Coaching Change, I’m sharing:
* How to identify your negotiation style
*The importance of perception
*The 5 specific skills to help you become a top negotiator
So that you can develop your negotiation style and feel totally confident in your role.
My favourite quotes from this episode;
- Would you be open to discussing?
- Negotiating is not manipulating people into what you want
- When you have empathy, you enjoy stronger collaboration, less stress, greater morale and you bounce back more quickly from difficult moments
In the end I managed to negotiate a salary rise in the job (based on early performance) and ended up being completely happy with my role. There’s ALWAYS a win. You just have to negotiate sometimes to get there!
