I was chatting with someone this week who has been in a work situation where she was not really appreciated or highly valued. This has resulted in little respect from senior management and compensation below the industry average.
What is remarkable about this person is that she refused to complain! Instead she took full responsibility for how others perceive her and she is taking action to make changes – one of which may be to move to a new firm.
She stood up to claim her value – a lesson we can each learn from.
