Women in Negotation Celebration

It’s Friyeay, good people of the internet! And you know what that means: we are celebrating WINners’ successes!

Today, I have two stories with you that were shared last night on our Grads call. I hope you will find them as inspirational as I do!

First one was from a WIN Grad who shared her joy in the 6-month secondment she had secured within her company in a different country. She absolutely loves her new team, she loves the work, she is doing much more interesting work – and a 32% pay rise to boot! What I celebrated with her and the other WINners, was not just these – objectively speaking awesome – results. What I just LOVE about this, is that she has conceived of this idea completely herself and then took the WIN steps to make it happen.

What do we learn from this?

You have agency. You can shape your life and your career. Don’t wait for others to do this for you. Go you, WINner!

And another story that was shared last night – amongst many others! – came from a lady who has taken my rule that you should spend approx. 10% of your work time on sharing what you are capable of and what you have done with your colleagues, so that they can leverage that, to new heights. She calculated she has probably spent about 20% of her time increasing her visibility in her company, through thought leadership pieces, speaking and attending events etc. Yeay her! And yeay company. Because, team, le me tell you what one of the outcomes of all that work was – that the mother of all EVPs realised that she is perfect to do a very high profile redesign of the entire team. If that EVP hadn’t known she is capable of doing that, they would have missed out on her magic.

So what is our second lesson of today? It is that you need to share what you’re capable of, and that doing that is great for everyone!

Love, love, love when WINners realise their agency, realise they need to take control of their careers, do it and then enjoy the sweet, sweet results of those strategies!
