Wednesday was “Equal Pay Day,” and I enjoyed participating in a Clubhouse Room with Dr. Lola Adeyemi and several dozen other amazing professionals to discuss this issue. While the underlying problem of unequal pay can only be fixed by new laws, legislation, and enforcement in the courts (we need more of this), the conversation shifted over to negotiation skills and techniques.
Now I think we all know that being forced to negotiate your position doesn’t fix the big problem of unequal pay for the same position, it is often the only recourse available for most of us in the short-term. With that in mind, I’m sharing the following blog post that contains some of my favorite negotiation tips and approaches.
I’ve also included a few resources that have helped me become a better communicator. Hopefully, there’s something here that will help you too.
Please share with anyone who you feel could use a few pointers when it comes to negotiating and communicating better https://mitchjackson.com/negotiation/
