This shouldn’t surprise you. Not everyone is going to agree with how you use your voice, or what your preferences are, or even the decisions you make. That’s okay. You are your own person. You have personal agency to do these things.

But you do have a responsibility to navigate conversations with others who think differently, have their own personal agency, and may be responsible for things that impact you.

Negotiate, negotiate, negotiate.

Can I say it again?

Negotiate, negotiate, negotiate.

Now negotiation may not look like offers and counter-offers. And negotiations are not limited to employer-employee contracts.

Negotiations can simply be considered arrangements that typically require conversation amongst people with differing perspectives, responsibilities, power, preferences, and possibilities.
