with Wies Bratby
Expanding the Pie
How do you create a constructive and positive environment around your negotiations? Today’s participant works for a startup, and her boss tends to take every salary increase quite personal, since he feels like the money is coming from his pocket. She would like to learn how to avoid the stress and negative emotion generated each time she is going into a negotiation with her boss. Wies will introduce her to the concept of “expanding the pie” and ways to creating a win-win scenario for both sides.
The Driver’s Seat
Today’s participant has been with the same company for her entire career. She’s grateful for the opportunities she’s been given, but she feels quite passive and not in charge of her career. She is therefore contemplating looking for a new job externally, even though she likes the company she is at right now. Wies will help her take a more active approach, and will challenge her mindset about asking.
A Difficult Conversation
Today’s participant has had an emotional clash with her boss. She is shaken by it, because it doesn’t seem to be just a personal matter, but there seem to be sexist issues at play, too. As a result, she has been avoiding her boss, but that isn’t a sustainable solution.
She has come to Wies to find a way forward. She is worried her own lingering emotions around this will influence the conversation they will need to have. How can she speak with him and resume a positive relationship with him?
