Leadership happens in small conversations. Conversations that could take place over the amount of time it takes to drink a cup of coffee.
Even if you are not nervous, timing is important when it comes to negotiating. I invite you to slow the process down. In this example we are using the situation presented on Saturday. The idea of asking for a flexible schedule. By the time you complete these ten days of planning and practice you will feel ready to engage in a negotiation conversation.
Day 1- Grab a _____ and sit down for a reflective conversation. If you remember, this is the kind of conversation that goes on inside your head. List the value you have brought to your company recently. (You may not even use this list when you negotiate but you will benefit from remembering the value you add.)
