Prepare for the Kiwi invasion

first_imgThe New Zealanders are here and they mean business.Not so much the winning-type of business but more of a preparing their up-and-coming players for international touch football.Touch Football New Zealand has sent four of their development teams to the X-Blades National Youth Championships at Port Macquarie to gain international experience.The four teams – under 15s boys and girls, under 17s and boys and girls – will go head-to-head with some of the strongest youth teams in Australia like Queensland Secondary Schools Touch and New South Wales Combined High Schools, as well as teams from Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania.Touch New Zealand tour manager Bruce Morton said it was a great opportunity to blood some of the country’s best young touch players.“It is part of our high performance pathway,” Morton said. “Basically it is getting them up to that next step in international level.“We want to expose our young teams to the highest level and this is a fantastic tournament to do that.”Like it is in Australia, touch is very strong across the ditch.Australia and New Zealand are the two best ranked touch football teams in the world.They contested in five of the seven division finals at last year’s World Cup in Edinburgh.They went head-to-head in the Trans-Tasman Test Series in Mudgee in April with Australia taking out the series 3-0.“There is still plenty of work to do but we are trying to put in processes of getting stronger and stronger, so that one-two [world ranking] slot swaps around,” Morton said.Coming over the Tasman and playing at the NYC is a step in the right direction, Morton says.“We do as much as we can in New Zealand but to get that exposure to the next level you really need to come to something like this and this is why we do it.“The next four days, results aren’t important to us. “It’s about how the team prepares, getting some coaches’ experience and we have a few referees over here as well. “It is about the experience for us. Getting them used to that tournament mode and that international standard.”For more information on the NYC, check out these websites:NYC – Football Australia – LinksPrepare for the Kiwi invasionlast_img read more

The Latest Merkel in China says HK freedoms should be safe

BEIJING — The Latest on German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit to Beijing (all times local):3 p.m.German Chancellor Angela Merkel says the rights and freedoms of Hong Kong residents should be protected and a solution to the Chinese city’s political crisis can only be garnered through dialogue while violence should be avoided.Merkel spoke at a news conference in Beijing on Friday alongside Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.The German leader says she indicated during her talks with him “that the rights and freedoms agreed upon in Hong Kong’s Basic Law should be safeguarded.” The Basic Law is Hong Kong’s de facto constitution, which promises the semi-autonomous territory certain democratic rights not afforded to the mainland.Merkel added that political dialogue — not violence — is the path toward a resolution.___11 a.m.German Chancellor Angela Merkel has arrived in Beijing, where she faces the challenge of balancing human rights concerns and economic discussions with one of Germany’s largest trading partners.Merkel is meeting Friday morning with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and will dine with President Xi Jinping in the evening.China was Germany’s biggest single trading partner last year, with trade totalling 199 billion euros ($218 billion). The relationship is important to Europe’s largest economy, particularly as Germany is considered likely to enter a technical recession in the current quarter.The economic ties make it harder for Merkel to satisfy a U.S. diplomat and activists who have urged her to raise human rights issues such as China’s treatment of ethnic minorities and Hong Kong’s three months of pro-democracy demonstrations.The Associated Press read more

UN aviation agency adopts new unified strategy to boost air safety worldwide

“The unified strategy creates mechanisms for the integration of efforts to increase transparency and disclosure of safety-related information, to analyze available safety-related data from multiple sources and to establish partnerships to resolve safety-related deficiencies,” said the President of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Council, Assad Kotaite.“I am confident that the unified strategy will make an important contribution toward further improving aviation safety around the world,” he told the Global Summit on Regional Aviation Safety Oversight, hosted by the George Washington University Consortium in Washington, DC, earlier this week.The new guidelines follow a resolution adopted last autumn at the 35th Session of the ICAO Assembly to resolve safety-related deficiencies by directing the Organization’s 188 Contracting States to share critical safety information which may have an impact on the safety of international air navigation.Full reports from the Organization’s Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme (USOAP) will now be made available to all Contracting States, rather than summary reports as is currently the case. USOAP assesses a State’s level of implementation of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs).Because of their inherent economies of scale and focus on harmonization, Mr. Kotaite said regional or sub-regional safety oversight organizations should be developed or strengthened to help countries that lack the required human, technical and financial resources to adequately perform their national safety oversight operations.“It is critical that ICAO, national civil aviation authorities, industry and funding institutions coordinate and cooperate in the provision of aviation technical assistance and guidance,” he added. “I encourage all stakeholders to forge better relationships with their counterparts in order to support countries and regional organizations in their various endeavours to comply with international standards.” read more

Brock student uses social media to connect students raise mental health awareness

Health Sciences student Kaitlyn Kerridge was a driving force behind the Facebook component of the award-winning, Brock student-led initiative Cope Care Connect.When it comes to social media, Kaitlyn Kerridge sees the power to connect people.“Walk into any university classroom and see what students are doing on their computer or on their phone,” says Kerridge. “There’s always a Facebook tab open.”“Everyone is always on there, so it’s your way to reach the greatest amount of people in the shortest amount of time. And it’s interactive, which is the best part.”The health sciences student was a driving force behind the Facebook component of the Brock student-led initiative Cope Care Connect. The campaign won first place last week in the province-wide Mental Health 2.0 competition that challenged students to use social media to boost mental health at Ontario universities.The online and face-to-face initiative, which aims to help Brock students cope with everyday stress, care for others, and connect with each other for support, took on a life of its own on social media.To date, Cope Care Connect’s Facebook page has close to 500 likes and some posts have been viewed more than 800 times. Kerridge notes that inspiring quotes posted to the site were some of the most-shared and most-viewed content.“I feel that we as humans have almost lost the ability to talk to each other,” she says. “We’re so hidden behind the screen, but social media can work both ways.”“We’re trying to do this for the better and get people to just talk about these issues because sometimes when you just say it out loud it helps so much more.”Cope Care Connect grew out of a class project in her third-year “Program Planning and Evaluation” Health Sciences class with Professor Kelli-an Lawrance. The entire project involved 60 students in the development, implementation and evaluation of the mental health campaign, which ran at Brock from Feb. 3 to March 10.Students were divided into different project committees – marketing, website, social media, display tables, etc. – and Kerridge volunteered to be part of the five-person group overseeing the initiative’s Facebook page.“We wanted to go beyond just getting students to like the page,” says Kerridge, “because anyone can see it, but are they really understanding what’s there?”To engage with students, Kerridge and her crew would post to their Facebook page two to three times every school day. They encouraged fellow students to actively post things themselves, like pictures and videos of them doing something around campus for somebody else. They also held weekly contests and developed themes for every week of the five-week campaign in order to drive up student engagement on the site.“We just wanted to try and get across to students that it feels really good when you do something for someone that you don’t even know,” says Kerridge. “You can turn someone’s day around if you do something like that. It could be the difference between someone having a really crappy day and someone having a good day.”Prof. Lawrance plans to implement the Cope Care Connect campaign in her third-year Health Sciences class again next year. Kerridge hopes that Cope Care Connect one day develops into a full-time student resource at Brock. She would also like to see the initiative expand its social media presence with Twitter and Instagram accounts.Kerridge, who is in her last year of study at Brock, plans to go on to work in health sciences. She credits her involvement with Cope Care Connect with helping her to develop her own personal research interests in mental health alternative therapies.“It wasn’t really until this year that I decided that is really my forte and where I wanted to go with my studies,” she says.Students interested in tips for coping with the pressures of school or more info on making Brock’s campus a healthier place for everyone, can access the Cope Care Connect Survival Guide online.This campaign was made possible through a partnership with Brock’s Student Health Services, who provided resources, in-kind support and expert consultation. read more

Womens swimming Liz Lis success began across the globe on the biggest

OSU then-sophomore Liz Li poses for a picture at the 2016 Big Ten Championships. Credit: Courtesy of OSUThe crowd roared as the swimmers were told to take their marks at the 2017 Big Ten Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships in West Lafayette, Indiana. The scream of the beep sounded, signaling the athletes to leap from their starting blocks, and soon they plummeted into the water, each stroke propelling them toward the finish line.The swimmers’ thoughts drowned out the cheers as they kept their heads down, eyes locked on the bottom of the pool, thinking of nothing but victory. Suddenly, thrusting her hands into the touch pad, junior Liz Li had won the 50-yard freestyle — again.Li arrived at Ohio State to begin her first semester in the fall of 2014, and has been mostly successful ever since. However, her journey began long before traveling to America to compete with the Buckeyes.Li is originally from Shenyang, China, where she was first taught to swim at 6 years old by someone very important to her.“My dad brought me to a recreational swimming pool and taught me how to swim one day,” Li said. “Actually, he taught me breaststroke first, which is the stroke that I’m really bad at now, which is funny.”Soon after, Li’s father sent her to a more official swimming club in her hometown, where her current Chinese coach selected her for her team. The coach felt that Li had good body composition and great potential, so she convinced Li’s parents to give it a shot, Li said.“Initially, my parents just wanted me to do some sport or activity because I was a really unhealthy kid and got sick a lot. So, my parents thought, ‘Why not just do something to become healthier,’” Li said. “It was summer break, so swimming was a good activity to do, and I continually liked to swim with my Chinese coach.” A short while after Li joined the team, she was sent to the provincial team because she was becoming more and more advanced. In China, they don’t necessarily have club teams or college teams. Instead, they have teams for a specific city or province, Li said.Based on Li’s rapidly advancing skill set, her coach thought the young swimmer had a chance to travel and compete in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic trials. Though Li was nervous, she knew that China didn’t have many advanced sprinters at the time. She knew her coach was confident in her, so she took the plunge. It paid off.“I made the Chinese national team for the 2008 Olympic Games, and I was the youngest athlete from my country to compete at the time, at the age of 14. I got 12th place for my 50-yard freestyle, and I was really happy about that,” Li said.The following year, Li was at her peak level. She was still young and in high school, but her environment was taking a toll on her happiness. She was becoming very depressed and unhappy, Li said.“I talked to my parents and said, ‘Can I just try another experience? I want to study abroad and simply see another language and another part of the world, and I think that can make me happier,’” Li said. “At first my parents were kind of hesitant to let me go since they wouldn’t be able to see me all the time, but finally they said, ‘OK.’”With her parents’ blessing, Li began to research schools in the United States, and the processes for applying to them. At the time, the swimmer barely spoke a word of English, driving her to initially enroll at an English language services program. They decided upon Ohio Dominican University in April of 2013.“When I first came here … it was a culture shock because in America there are not a lot of people, but in China you can see people everywhere, it’s so crowded,” Li said. “I was so shocked, calling my mom and telling her that I wanted to go back home and that I was so lonely.”However, Li’s mother told her not to give up, and she didn’t. Li completed her language program and was originally planning to go to the University of Dayton. However, Li made friends at OSU who brought her to campus to show her around.Li knew instantly, especially after visiting the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion, that this is where she wanted to be.Soon after, Li emailed OSU women’s swimming coach, Bill Dorenkott, to discuss the possibility of joining the team. Not long after they were setting up times for Li to complete the necessary steps to begin her career at OSU in the fall of 2014.“The college competition is so much fun for me, and it’s totally a different experience. I love the atmosphere and the culture,” Li said. “In the culture I’m from, we are just very serious about the competitions and the meets, and everybody is not as happy, I would say. Here, we’re also focused, but it’s more fun. Especially within our team. We create that atmosphere and try to inspire each other to go fast. It’s not only for yourself, but for the team.”Li has always been a hard-working team player, according to her teammates.“She’s a genuine competitor, and I like to say she’s programmed to win,” senior Taylor Vargo said. “She gives her best all the time, and you can’t really ask for any more from someone.”Throughout her collegiate career competing with the Buckeyes, Li has become a highly decorated athlete. She has competed in the Big Ten championships all three years, taking home two Big Ten titles her sophomore and junior year in the 50-yard freestyle, breaking her own record the second time around. She also won the 100-yard butterfly in 2016 and 100-yard freestyle in 2017 by setting a new school record.Additionally, the experienced swimmer was named Big Ten Swimmer of the Week twice throughout her career, and competed in the NCAA championships each year. Throughout the NCAAs, Li has earned a total of eight All-American titles, and set school and personal records. The competitions are not always the most important part of her college career, though, Li said. “Outside of the swimming outcomes and Big Ten championships, I feel like the most important thing is being a swimmer at Ohio State,” she said. “It’s not only about being elite swimmers. Coach Bill and coach Jordan (Wolfrum) also helped me to learn how to be an elite person, and that is such a big accomplishment to me.” Dorenkott has taken pride in coaching Li, and has enjoyed experiencing her victory alongside her. “She’s an amazing young lady. She’s a long way from home, and we’re pretty fortunate that she decided to come to Ohio State,” Dorenkott said. “She’s a world-class competitor, and she’s got a lot of background prior to coming here. She’s a humble kid, a very hard worker and she’s very deserving of the success she’s had. I love coaching her.”While Li has thoroughly enjoyed and is forever grateful for her experiences here, she is excited to return to her hometown after a two-month training trip with her Chinese national team in Los Angeles upon graduating this spring.“Since I’ve been in America for three or four years now, I kind of miss training with my Chinese teammates too. It’s just a totally different culture, but I would say I really want to bring the positive things I learned from here to impact my Chinese team,” Li said. “I hope I can contribute some of my experiences to my team when I return to make them better also.”Li concluded her final season with the Buckeyes this past March, and will be graduating in the spring of this year. Upon graduation, Li will go home to China after her training trip to compete in the Chinese National Games in September.“I wouldn’t say I want to be the champion, but you know, that is kind of my desire and my ultimate goal,” Li said. read more

Charred bodies of Canadian mafiosi found in Sicily

first_imgPARAMILITARY POLICE HAVE found two charred bodies in Sicily of Italian-Canadian gangsters suspected of drug trafficking to Canada who were being sought in a raid that netted 21 alleged mafiosi.The two bodies, discovered at a garbage tip, were that of Juan Ramon Fernandez, 57, known as “Joe Bravo”, and Fernando Pimentel, 36, said the Carabinieri police in a statement on Thursday.They were suspected of trafficking in heroin and oxycodone from Sicily to Canada together with a mafia clan based in Bagheria near Palermo, which was targeted in an operation on Wednesday.The operation, dubbed “Argo”, was carried out jointly by Italian and Canadian police.The bodies were riddled with around 30 gunshots.The Carabinieri police said two mafia “men of honour”, the Bagheria-born Scaduto brothers, had already been arrested as suspects in the murders and said they were searching for others in the case.Police think the order to kill Fernandez and Pimentel had come from Canada and was part of a turf war between two rival mafia bosses in Canada — the Vito Rizzuto mafia family and a new rebel faction led by Quebecois Raynald Desjardin.Fernandez — an alleged member of the Toronto-based Rizzuto family — was deported from Canada and moved to Bagheria after serving a 10-year prison sentence for extortion, drug trafficking and illegal possession of firearms.Pimentel was also involved in organised crime in Toronto and had arrived in Sicily in March.Their bodies were found near a farmhouse outside the town of Casteldaccia near Bagheria.The ANSA news agency said police were tipped off to the location by an anonymous phone-call.- © AFP, 2013Read: Italian court confirms Berlusconi ally guilty in mafia case > Read: Random theft ends with notorious mobster behind bars >last_img read more

Meet Costa Ricas cleanest beaches

first_img Facebook Comments Related posts:Costa Rica’s cleanest beaches of 2016 get blue flags Costa Rica’s cleanest beaches Costa Rica declines to vote on shark protections at international convention Costa Rica launches quest to replace most single-use plastic by 2021 Holy Week is approaching, and for those planning to enjoy some time off at the beach, new recommendations await: the Costa Rica Tourism Board (ICT) this week disclosed the list of those certified as the cleanest and most sustainable in the country.Starting this week, a total of 105 beaches are displaying a blue flag that certifies that they met the minimum requirements of the “Blue Flag Ecological Program” (PBAE).The quality certification program awards blue flags each year, displaying one to five stars. The number of stars depends on the points obtained in three separate evaluations conducted annually by a group of inspectors from various ministries and public agencies.Getting a blue flag with at least one star requires a minimum compliance of 90 percent during each evaluation.Top qualifiedThree beaches will display blue flags with five stars for the next 12 months. All three are on the Pacific coast: Playa Blanca in Puntarenas, and Matapalo and El Madero in northern Guanacaste. Playitas beach in the Central Pacific earned four stars.Puerto Vargas, Playa Blanca (Cahuita) and Pacuare Sur are the top-ranked Caribbean beaches with three stars each.Tourism Minister Mauricio Ventura said that any recognition of the efforts to improve sustainability of the country’s tourist destinations are always of great importance, “especially when the United Nations World Tourism Organization designated 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.” Getting a blue flag means obtaining a minimum compliance of 90 percent during each of the three evaluations conducted throughout a year. (Via PBA)EvaluationInspection teams visit each beach three times throughout a year to evaluate the annual plan proposed by each of the local Blue Flag committees that submit their beach for the certification program.Among other parameters, they inspect beaches for trash-free sands, clean ocean and drinking water, access to showers and restrooms, and waste disposal programs.The certification program also takes into account the existance of safety aspects such as the existence of appropriate information about strong waves or riptides and the availability of lifesaving and emergency staff throughout the year.In addition to evaluations, inspectors also advise local committee members on administrative and technical issues and provide recommendations for improvements they will look for on their next visit.Minister Ventura stressed that the Blue Flag Ecological Program is an example to be followed in the implementation of initiatives that promote sustainable tourism.“These efforts strengthen our country’s image as a destination that generates authentic travel experiences,” he said.The Blue Flag Program began 20 years ago. In addition to beaches, it awards flags for environmental awareness to communities, schools, protected natural areas and hydrological watersheds. It also offers awards for climate change mitigation, community health promotion and sustainable homes.Awards in all categories will be announced in coming weeks.Hover over the map to see the beaches awarded a blue flag this year:last_img read more

Economist Africa growing political risks remain

first_imgChina’s economy has also begun to contract, meaning the price of oil, precious metals and other commodities exported by African nations likely will drop, squeezing budgets of export-dominated nations like Nigeria, Ncube said.Perhaps more worrying for the continent are its demographics: Of more than 200 million young adults on the continent, less than half have jobs, according to the bank’s forecast. As Africa’s population continues to grow, job creation continues to lag far behind and will put even more pressure on countries, Ncube said. Meanwhile, universities across the continent graduate more students expecting jobs that simply aren’t there, he said.“This continent needs to start creating jobs,” Ncube said. “There is a good part of our growth that is due to commodities and that is not good enough. Commodities don’t create a lot of jobs.”___Jon Gambrell can be reached at However, the political instability caused by the Arab Spring and other concerns has weighed down the economies of North Africa, particularly Egypt, a report by the bank released Tuesday shows. And the recent coup in Mali indicates that unrest even in established democracies and other governments remains a possibility across the Sahel, Ncube said.“If you overlay (political) exclusion with natural resources, leaders never leave,” Ncube said. “And if they do leave, they never leave quietly.”The bank’s forecast also estimates sluggish economic growth from South Africa as well, with 2.9 percent growth in a nation that’s typically a leader on the continent. The government announced Tuesday that the nation’s unemployment rate slightly dropped to 24.9 percent from 25.2 percent. The World Bank recently pegged South Africa’s growth at 2.5 percent for the coming year, on the back of lower exports and a drop in mining.Africa has seen year-over-year economic growth while economies in Europe and the U.S. stagnant under the weight of the global recession. That has affected Africa, as tourism dollars have waned and there’s less desire to send aid to the continent, Ncube said. That also could cut back on remittances, cash sent back to the continent from those living abroad that now represents a $50 billion-a-year infusion, the economist said. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Associated PressJOHANNESBURG (AP) – Africa will continue its economic growth into the next year, but faces increasing threats from continued political instability, youth unemployment and the global recession dragging down oil and commodity prices, a leading economist said Tuesday.A forecast from the African Development Bank expects 4.5 percent growth across Africa in 2012 and 4.8 percent growth in 2013, with sub-Saharan Africa to grow at an even faster pace, the bank’s chief economist Mthuli Ncube said. Post-revolution Libya should see its economy grow by 14.8 percent over that period, as normalcy returns and oil exports return to normal levels, he said.

Jessica Alba (@jessicaalba) July 20 2016 Contact us at editors@timecomAfter Ellen Pao lost her sex discrimination case against the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins she announced a new tactic to level the playing field and reduce gender bias in the workplace: her company Reddit where she is now interim CEO would ban salary negotiations for new employees Since men tend to negotiate more often and more aggressively than women they land higher salaries Pao noted Research also shows that when women do negotiate they face a backlashwhats called a "social cost" of asking Theyre less likely to be hired trusted deemed likeable and admirable colleagues and appointed to important positions No wonder 63 percent of millennial women in Levo Leagues 2015 survey said they feel uncomfortable negotiating a job offer Some greeted Ellen Paos ban with cheers saying that it reduces the impact of negotiation skills and therefore narrows the gender pay gap A "no negotiation" policy helps eliminate social costs stemming from prescriptive stereotypes such as the idea that women should be concerned with others not assertively individualistic hard bargainers Further since new hires dont have access to employers information to advocate for themselves from a position of equality and strength Paos move underscores the need for more transparency which would also foster the "equal opportunity environment for everyone" she seeks Others balked at the idea of banning negotiation and argued instead for equipping everyone with the skills necessary to ask for the compensation they deserve "Ask for the raise" urges Sally Krawcheck the CEO of Ellevate who once ran units of Citigroup and Bank of America: "People who ask get more money and people who dont ask tend to get less" The two sides of the debate that has emerged in the wake of Paos announcement both speak to the need to examine further how and why negotiation might help women in the workforce In addition to addressing the question of whether or not an individual should negotiate this discussion should prompt deeper reflection upon the fact that the burden to bargain successfully need not fall solely on an individual Organizations can encourage people to feel comfortable negotiating by fostering a negotiation culture inside the organization The human resources staff also can and should work to eliminate hidden biases in hiring appraisal and compensation decisions while still allowing people to bargain on their own behalf Furthermore women who dont build up skills in the practice of negotiation give up a potentially powerful way to help gender-neutral and family-friendly organizations emerge According to Deborah Kolb author of seven books on conflict and negotiation workplace negotiation is ubiquitous and occurs around a range of everyday activities well beyond initial compensation terms "We constantly negotiate about what kind of work we do what jobs we have what resources we need our goals and objectives or work schedules the work itself our roles and responsibilities and authority" she observes in her newly-released book Negotiating at Work Kolb has researched negotiations for 35 years and taught students and executives how to do it She explains that many organizations today still display outdated assumptions and practices that are holdovers from previous eraswhat sociologists call the negotiated orderwhen male workers without significant family responsibilities were the primary instigators making policy These assumptions include things like expecting face time at the office or the ability to work long uninterrupted hours They also include the expectation that mothers (but not fathers) be the "trailing spouses" in job changesand related but less openly-discussed practices like discouraging a mother from accepting an international assignment because it involves relocating and "might uproot her family" or not being transparent about criteria for promotion so women can position themselves to advance to top management later When a person negotiates about things other than what Kolb calls the "standard fare of bargaining"essentially compensation and employmentshe or he raises an issue that challenges an established practice that others may not see as a problem If these negotiations raise awareness about these more subtle assumptions and result in small changes the negotiated order of the organization begins to change The definition of whats acceptable expands Case studies in Negotiating at Work illustrate how this dynamic occurs A powerfully detailed one involves Cheryl a 15-year veteran executive of a heavy manufacturing firm who distinguished herself as a top performer in international and financial management mergers and acquisitions strategy valuation and structure When offered the job of chief financial officer of the firms $3 billion supply division Cheryl and her family moved to its Texas headquarters After two years however her husband and teenage children longed to return to their home state where they had family and community connections With no precedent in the firm for flexible work or telecommuting Cheryl negotiated with her boss a solution she calls a tri-office arrangement: she spends time working at the headquarters office in the field office and at a home office in Pennsylvania The proposal she offered benefitted her boss and the company herself and her familya successful win-win-win for all With negotiations like Cheryls (and Kolb offers many other examples in her book) for telecommuting or flex time or another innovative work arrangement the definition of whats acceptable to discuss and to try changes to include family responsibilities and other important commitments Kolb demonstrates how such small negotiations that occur daily in organizations can add up to a new negotiated order that makes room for more diversity in how people work She also tells of an ambitious tech division vice president (DVP) who was a strong candidate for promotion but was not yet on her bosss radar She initiated a negotiation about adjusting the criteria for the job so that she would not automatically be excluded either by her fewer years in the DVP role or her lesser time entertaining customers on evenings and weekends By putting herself forward she influenced her boss to consider promoting someone who could do the job well period and helped others by example to chart their future career paths in the process "What starts as an individual negotiating in the context of an existing negotiated order might yield to more systemic changes which can create an entirely different playing field for those negotiators who follow" notes Kolb These small wins spread from those directly involved in the negotiation to others who pick up on the new possibility and ask for it People become more comfortable with the idea and the organization begins to change often by adding a policy that empowers others to make a similar request So if women and men decline to negotiate at work they risk abandoning important opportunities to impact outmoded ways of working They give up a chance to influence the negotiated order that defines their organizationan entity likely designed for a workforce that no longer resembles the people for whom it was originally a comfortable fit The bottom line here is that to negotiate opens up the potential to achieve a small win for yourself that may engender a larger gain for others Nanette Fondas co-author of The Custom-Fit Workplace writes about business economics
