HAYVN is thrilled to have Kathryn Sollmann present on June 4. Kathryn is at the forefront of women’s work+life issues, and energizes and empowers women. She will ignite compelling discussions to help women transition through many work and life stages
This session will cover: HOW TO PITCH WORK FLEXIBILITY TO YOUR BOSS…AND GET IT!
To get a flexible work arrangement in your current job, it takes more than a simple ask. It’s too easy for your boss to say “no” if you casually lob a request to “work from home on Fridays”. You need to make a buttoned-up pitch for flexibility—as professionally as you would pitch a client for important business. Women learn what to highlight in a winning flexwork proposal, safeguards to make sure it works for both employer and employee and how to anticipate and shut down all potential objections.
