When a man—regardless of his HR prowess—says flirting is a good negotiation skill for women to use in the workplace, don’t take his advice. Don’t do it.
On Fistful of Talent today, EVP of HRU Technical Resources Tim Sackett, writes:
"[…] if you have a strength, like flirting, and you are also a woman... then you need to find ways to use that to your advantage in a business setting - to get your project budgets approved, who influence decisions in the way you feel they should go, to get that cute guy in marketing to go out with you (just kidding on the last one!). Bottom line, use your strengths when negotiating, and don't feel bad about it".
Still not convinced? Leave a comment and let's discuss.
