In honor of Equal Pay Day this month, I had the opportunity to facilitate a Lean In Facebook Q&A that reached 139,900 people on one of the more challenging sticky floors for women (and men in some cases). That sticky floor is called Asking For What You Want.
How many of us are too uncomfortable to ask for what we need, and deserve -- and therefore, end up donating our value, or breaking off a relationship in order to avoid that outcome?
The only negotiating result that can stand the test of time is win-win. BRAVE negotiating can get you there, working through behaviors, relationships, attitudes, values and the environment from the outside in as you prepare in advance, manage the moment and follow through.

There is power in memorable frameworks, which is why taking accountability for structuring your communication for that next audience is so important.
We need more outrage about these other Red Lines, the ones hurting our country. Where are the American people? Where is the outrage? We can do better. We are the United States of America -- we must do better.
