While some companies have adopted a totally transparent salary structure, talking about money in the office is still extremely uncomfortable for many people.
This week, leadership coach Lolly Daskal helps a reader come up with a graceful way to address the sensitive issue of salary with a prying coworker.
A coworker asked me today, “How much do you make?” It was totally out of the blue, and I feel like it was really inappropriate, and simply not his business. I was caught off guard. I’ve always been told not to talk about money, especially my salary. How do I handle this in the future?
Of Lolly’s many awards and accolades, Lolly was designated a Top-50 Leadership and Management Expert by Inc. magazine. Huffington Post honored Lolly with the title of The Most Inspiring Woman in the World. Her writing has appeared in HBR, Inc.com, Fast Company (Ask The Expert), Huffington Post, and Psychology Today, and others.
