Is that a threat?

by on
in Workplace Communication

If you’re job hunting, use your search as leverage to improve your current situation—just don’t twist your boss’s arm too hard. The best approach: Ask your manager for advice. Say, “I’m looking for more opportunities to learn and grow. Do you think I should move on in order to advance, or do you see any advantages to my staying here?” Avoid threats such as, “Either I increase my salary by 20 percent or I’m gone,” even if you’re justifiably angry at your current employer.
