“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It's about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.”

"If you think of a $100,000 salary, and one person negotiates and gets $107,000, and the other doesn’t, what is the cost of that? In a simple-minded way, some people say, is $7,000 really worth risking my reputation over? And I agree, $7,000 may not be worth your reputation.
But that’s not the correct analysis, because that $7,000 is compounded. If you and your counterpart who negotiated are treated identically by the company—you are given the same raises and promotions—35 years later, you will have to work eight more years to be as wealthy as your counterpart at retirement. Now, the question is: $7,000 may not be worth the risk, but how about eight years of your life?"

When we make someone an offer, we always aim low because we are expecting a counteroffer.
Women are better than men at negotiating on behalf of others.
