Defining our value requires us to explore our deeply held personal messages, ideas, and attitudes about ourselves and our relationship to money and/or salary. The act of asking for (more) money and/or (more/other) benefits, or crafting a personal value statement supported by accomplishments, skills/experience, and impact is complex enough. We owe it to ourselves to take time in finding and providing context and language that may help dismantle personally limiting beliefs and support us in asking for and demonstrating fair market value.
