You Definitely Won’t Get What You Are Worth Unless You Ask
In my role as a nonprofit compensation consultant and contract negotiator, I am usually retained by CEO’s or boards to negotiate multi-year year, complex employment contract. Sometimes, I get a request for advice that, if I have time, I respond to. As you can see from the note I received this morning, it can be very gratifying:
Thank you so much for your wonderful advice and words of wisdom regarding my job. I am happy to report that I asked for a promotion and higher salary that is more in line with my responsibilities and work experience. My boss is considering it and we are in the negotiation stages.
I truly could not have done it without your knowledge and encouragement. I am very grateful you took the time to speak with me as I know not everyone would do that in this busy day and age.
