The Second Easiest Way to Negotiate a Higher Salary (VIDEO)

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses the second easiest way to negotiate a higher salary for yourself. In the video, I refer to the easiest way to negotiate a higher salary for yourself.

Summary

Let's assume that you tried my easiest way to negotiate a higher salary for yourself and they said no. At that point, you reveal the fact (just do a quick review, easiest way to negotiate a higher salary is to start by saying, "Wow! That's a pretty good offer. I'd like to think about it a little bit." In their mind, they start getting nervous. You then try to get them to do "a touch better." There's a detailed presentation, if you watch the video.)

The 2nd easiest way is responding to their rejection of the easiest way, if you do, this is when you reveal that you have another offer. If you don't, and you're planning on turning this down anyway, you can still talk about having another offer because you have nothing to lose. If you have nothing, it's up to you as to whether or not you want to bluff

If this isn't good enough for you, bluffing incurs no loss. Bluffing, if you were to take the offer, can't risk them saying, "okay, take the other offer." And you grasping to get the offer back. And they go away and you look like a fool .

The 2nd easiest way is revealing that you have another job offer, it is for X number of dollars, you prefer their job to that one. "Why do you do that? Can't you be flexible?" The other one is a good job with a good firm, too . But, at the end of the day, when I go to the bank, they want me to have enough money to live on. They don't want me going into debt. The result ones of being. I do have to take money into consideration in their offer is. About $7500 more than yours.. Could you at least match that one?"

Often there to make it seem like a big deal and will be so hard that the earth will need to apart and working you need to get a lot of OKs from different people. "That's okay, because the other firm wants a decision by…" You tell them a date 2 days out. "They have been waiting patiently. They understand I have an interest in this job but they are starting to put pressure on me and I have stalled them for 2 more days. When you believe you can get back to me? Because if I don't have a decision in 2 more days I am to take the other offer."

What that does is turn everything around so it's no longer on you and it's on them. If they match that number or match the number you told him you will accept, whatever it is, you take the job.

So the text 2nd best way is to reveal that you have another job offer at just the right moment.

Enjoy yourself

Enjoy Yourself! | The No BS Coaching Advice Podcast

It doesn’t take much to enjoy yourself. You don’t even need to be good. As long as it is fun for you. . . I certainly prove that in this show.

Summary

I try to spend some time regularly talk about something related to coaching. I do that because I think many of us are stuck doing the same things over and over and over again. Life has become dreary. With that in mind, I thought I would do something to make my point about breaking out from that mold.

I was with some friends last evening, there were few people with guitars and playing... And I sang. I used to sing with a band many years ago. My voice isn't what it once was and it was just fun to let go a little bit. I thought I would annoy you sufficiently by saying an old song. Ready?

"Slow down. You moving too fast. You got to make the morning last. Just kicking down the cobblestones. Looking for fun and feeling groovy.
"Hello lamppost. Whatcha knowing. I've come to watch her flowers growing. Aincha got no rhymes for me. Feeling groovy.
"I got no needs to do. No promises to keep. I'm dappled and drowsy and ready for sleep. But the morning time drop all its petals on me. Life I love you. All is groovy.

Now the song would ended a particular way that's irrelevant. I did this because it was fun for me.

What can you do that's fun for you that you haven't done a long time? In one way or another, you've gotten the message to "shut up. Do what you're told. Be well behaved." You know, practicing doing this from time to time will help you a lot.

For me, it is singing. For you, it may be riding a bike. It doesn't matter! Just get out and do something that you like!
