The biggest mistake women make is to not negotiate. Many women look at situations in terms of decisions they have to make, not opportunities to negotiate. They either accept the offer or turn it down. Successful women understand that almost everything is negotiable.

In his post, Gender Pay Gap Culprit: Lousy Negotiating Skills,” Don Tennant wrote about his recent discussion with Lee Miller, a longtime human resources executive and career consultant.
