At this point, you should be ready to start the conversation about getting paid more. I’ll show you a few simple emails you can send, or conversations you can have to start to prime the idea in your manager’s mind that you would like to be paid more.
I’ll teach you how to ask confidently without coming across arrogant, and how to avoid getting shut down right off the bat.
- Use the “How Can We Make This Happen?” Technique.
- Use the “What’s the Next Step?” Technique.
- Avoid Yes/No questions. Can I have a raise? vs. What can I do to get a compensation increase?
