This week on the Peace Parlor, we have a powerful advocate for women in the workplace. Are you underpaid? Talk to her. She'll show you how to get every penny you're worth and gratitude from your boss that you've chosen to work there. Need respect? She can show you how to win respect and step into your power.

Armed with a plan, new-found skills and confidence, Michaela told the story of how her strategy and influence strengths generated both innovation and profit. She asked for a promotion and a 31% increase in salary to factor in both her wage gap and the future goals she was about to accomplish.
She walked out with more than she asked for, a new title and role, and blue sky all around.
This week, we're grateful to have LinkedIn powerhouse and co-founder of She Negotiates, Lisa Gates.
