How to Negotiate Flexible Work with Your Employer
So you’ve decided that it’s time to talk to your employer about considering more flexible work options. Perhaps you’d like to work from home one day a week? Or maybe you’d like to have more flexible hours?
“Everyone feels as if they’re negotiating from a position of weakness -- even the Big Dogs,” says Lisa Gates, co-founder of She Negotiates. “Why? Because everyone wants what they want and few people or institutions think they have the power to make other people do what they want, no matter how much money or power they possess.”
As an esteemed speaker, negotiator, and Forbes blogger, Lisa is a powerful speaker who inspires and empowers women to negotiate with confidence. Lisa recently hosted a webinar for Mom Corps where she offered valuable tips on how to talk with your employer about flexibility as a benefit to the organization, including worksheets to help you prepare for conversations with your employer!
