Remote/flexible working - is it now the future?

Updated: Aug 30, 2020

How many women who work wanted to ask for remote or flexible work but didn’t dare ask their boss because at that time it didn’t seem feasible?

Or how many DID ask BUT they didn’t ask for all they wanted?

A common feminine trait I’ve seen is our willingness for accommodation.

Ask yourself this:

BEFORE asking for what matters the most, do you repeatedly role play the conversation? In your own head or with others?

You are 100% brave in YOUR dedication to negotiating the full options?

WELL DONE!

But...

The outcome of that private meeting is this:

You end up accommodating your boss WITHOUT giving them the chance of participation!

YOU negotiate yourself DOWN.

To your 2nd, 3rd, 4th option?

You then go and ask for THAT option and YES, you GET IT!

Boss: “I am amazing“
