Do you avoid or struggle with negotiating your salary?
For women, more so than men, this is a common challenge. We are less inclined to back ourselves and ask for more money, even when it is rightly deserved.
The recent controversial interview with Jordan Peterson on Chanel 4 highlights some of the reasons why women still earn less than men in some occupational fields. While many things need to change in our society before we will see pay equality, one thing women can do now is to be more proactive and ambitious in salary package negotiation discussions. I certainly agree with Jordan in this area and have coached many women in conducting successful salary negotiations with new and existing employers.
