Sklover’s Thoughts for the Work Week

Sklover Working Wisdom

“The person who knows only his side of the argument knows little.”. – Karl Barth. This quote expresses well what I often counsel my clients: “When negotiating at work, don’t focus your thoughts on what you want, need or deserve. That is because what your employer wants is the key to you getting what you “want, need and deserve” from your employer.”. Especially in times of difficulty and distress, so often we focus on “I want, I need, I deserve.”

asking coworkers to go to vegetarian-friendly restaurants, contacting my team with support while they’re laid off, and more

Ask a Manager

It’s five answers to five questions. Here we go…. Asking coworkers to go to vegetarian-friendly restaurants on business trips. I am vegetarian (by choice). Normally, this is not a huge issue, and many of my friends and coworkers don’t even know I am vegetarian.
