Not getting what you want or living with what someone decides you deserve is exhausting and dispiriting. Linda Swindling provides principles, tactics, and strategies to help you show up powerfully to negotiate for the best deals at work and in life with confidence and integrity.
Asking outrageously does not mean being obnoxious or taking advantage of others. It means making a big ask - if you're going to ask anyway, why not be bold? In her former life as an attorney, Swindling found she was doing this all the time for her clients but was puzzled to realize she rarely did it for herself. She describes a straightforward, three-step process:
1. Determine what you want 2. Approach those who have the authority to grant your wish 3. Feel the fear and ask anywayWith a wealth of practical tools - checklists, suggested questions, case studies, and an online assessment so you can evaluate how well you ask now - this book helps you overcome blockages and inhibitions to reach breakthrough results and ask for more than you believe is possible.
