Less than half of all workers ever ask for a raise and close to 30% are uncomfortable negotiating salary. Does this sound familiar?
If this is something that you’ve struggled with yourself and you’re ready to see a bump in your paycheck, then here are three tools you can use to make that process easier.
First, let’s acknowledge that every job is a mix of aptitude and attitude.
Being good at your job is aptitude. We’ve all known people who are absolute workhorses, but who never seem to get that promotion. They keep their head down, nose to the grindstone. But while their job performance might be consistently better than some of their co-workers, they’re rarely invited into creative meetings.
Let’s assume that you’ve already got the right aptitude – now let’s look at your attitude. Your attitude is nothing more than your point of view. People who feel uncomfortable asking for a raise are usually experiencing a combination of doubt and fear, and that’s not going to contribute to adding more money to your paycheck.
