How To Ask For What You Want

Conversation highlights from our conversations with past Women’s Forum speakers: Carrie Byrnes, a Benefits & Compensation Attorney, and Robin Ross, an Executive & Leadership Coach.

One of my favorite coaching questions is – What’s the worst that can happen? Generally, the answer is not that bad. It’s like, well, they’ll say “no”. Right? And then what will you do? — Robin Ross

It is a matter of doing your research, understanding what is market and what your male counterpart might be making. So you know what to ask for and straight up asking for it. And also understanding that there might not always be more money…but being flexible and creative and understanding what is it that is really most important to you. — Carrie Byrnes

It's one thing to watch,
the world change. It's quite another
thing to participate
in the process.
