Navigate a tough discussion

If you know you’re about to initiate a tough conversation and you’re anticipating some pushback, put in some work before the discussion. 

Clarify why you’re talking and keep that at the forefront of your mind during the discussion.

Don’t just ask your boss for “more responsibility”—say exactly which tasks you’re interested in taking on and suggest a timeframe for doing so.
