6 Steps to Take When Asking Your Boss for a Pay Raise


After I posted a video a while back about why women should ask to be paid more, my inbox was filled with follow-up questions about how to ask for a salary increase. So, in this video, I take you through the X# actual steps you need to take in order to ask for a pay raise in your current job.

As you may remember from my story, I’ve been a career development expert for over 15 years now (I’m a former lawyer-turned HR executive-turned diversity and motivational speaker!). The topic of compensation is one that has come up repeatedly in my years of coaching hundreds and hundreds of professionals. Asking to be paid more may feel like it’s going to be tricky conversation to navigate, but it doesn’t have to be if you plan it out.

So, grab a pen and take notes as I take you through the do’s and don’ts in asking to be paid more. The key thing to remember is that you have to step into your power by taking action in order to get paid what you really deserve!
