Job titles are just labels. True. And sometimes labels help, facilitate, support achieve goals. Of course, they also please ego which shouldn’t be the main reason to negociate a change with your manager.

In an article published in Harvard Business Review, journalist Rebecca Knight highlights a few principles to keep in mind when you want to get the job title you think you deserve. 


  • Think about your individual circumstances and consider your reasons for wanting a new title. How will a new title help you do your job better?
  • Leverage your social network and other online resources to identify possible job titles that reflect your skills, expertise, and status.
  • Reflect on your boss’s motivations and challenges. Before you make the request, ask yourself: Why would my current or prospective boss say yes?


  • Go overboard with a personalized title. If you’d like one and your employer agrees to it, make sure you have a traditional equivalent.
  • Be myopic about negotiating for a better title. Everything — including your salary, job description, and benefits — should be on the table.
  • Get discouraged if you don’t get what you want right away. Asking for a new title is an ongoing negotiation.

Here are 18 ways to improve your self-confidence as presented by Jeff Haden, writer for Inc.

My favourite? #7

1. Show gratitude. Thank someone. Thank anyone. Thank yourself, too.

2. Act with kindness. This will give you confidence to truly be yourself around others.

3. Define your values. Make a commitment to live those values.

4. Find your true motivations. Once you know what your values are, those values help you understand what motivates you.

5. Take special care to look better than usual. But we all perform better when we look better.

6. Perform a little mental Photoshop. We are what we expect.

7. Smile more. Find a way to smile, especially when you don’t want to.

8. Visualize success. Hold on to those images. Hold on to those feelings.

9. Erase negative thoughts. Stop listening to that voice by imagining the voice as a person. Tell that person to leave.

10. Prepare, with focus. Know your stuff.

11. Slow down your speech. Showing you are not worried about what to say next.

12. Serve others. Serving others erases millions of personal problems.

13. Focus on solutions. Solutions are more important than problems. Focus on what is possible rather than what currently « is. »

14. Fix your posture. Stand tall, sit up straight, be present.

15. Learn more. Learn from the best. Then learn more.

16. Set goals. Then set bigger goals. Set a small goal. Accomplish it. Success breeds success.

17. Exercise more than last week. Movement creates action.

18. Clean your space.  Clarity of space allows for clarity of thought.
