Hey! Am wondering if anyone has a change and comms template they could help me with for my role? Thanks!
I'm a Manager who would like to be promoted to Director in the near future. While reflecting on how I've developed in my role with my current company, I've realized that the only development/coaching I've received has been on how to interact with the difficult personalities on our leadership team. I know that messaging is important, but this feels really specific to individual's bad behavior.
Is this common for someone who is looking to move from Manager to Director?

Any tips on how best to go about asking for a raise? Or how to even set that meeting up without causing a stir. I feel confident that I’m owed a good $30k raise and can defend that. But I am a little worried. Seems possible that as soon as I even ask my boss (equity partner) for a meeting to discuss my salary and future goals he may just call me straight in his office and want to shoot it down. Also, I like my firm and don’t intend to leave if I don’t get my ask, at least not anytime soon.

I’m in my 3rd Quarter as an SDR and we’re paid on meetings booked. All Qs in 2021 and Q1 ‘22 goal were 21/Q… Q2 increased to 35 (with 0 evidence that we could hit this number)… no one hit it but we still did our best Q yet.
We’re < 1 week from the end of Q3. Our goal was 35, but as of 2 weeks ago they told us it has changed. They did not tell us how it changed, just that it had. They still have not given us our commission structure. We don’t know how we’re being paid this quarter.
