“In business as in life, you don’t get what you deserve. You get what you negotiate.”

– Chester Karrass

And, of course, it is true at work, as well. It may not be “fair,” it may not be “easy,” it may not be the way you want it, but it is a part of “life,” itself. You need to earn, ask for, and work to get what you earn by your good efforts. This is the essential message of our efforts on your behalf: to remind you that you need to negotiate, that negotiation is not a scary word, and to assist you in the process. If you’re reading this thought, you probably already “get the message.” Follow the insights, learn how to do it, and keep up the effort. The positive results will follow, of that you can be certain.

This quote was submitted by Roger T., a SkloverWorkingWisdom blog family member, from St. Joseph, Missouri. Roger, thanks for the simple and oh-so-insightful message.
