Cindy works for a high-class Dutch cheese importer in Taiwan. She has asked to have a meeting with her boss, Frans, to try and get a raise.
Frans: So Cindy, you asked to see me. What can I do for you?
Cindy: You know that I have just signed a major new contract with a distributor in southern Taiwan.
Frans: Yes. It was a good team effort. Well done.
Cindy: Well actually, I led on the project, and the deal was down to me taking the initiative in the negotiations.
Frans: Yes. You did show good leadership skills.
Cindy: And I single-handedly led the original pitch.
Frans: Yes, it was a great performance. Thank you.
Cindy: My pleasure. So, I clearly have the full skill set. I have proved my value to the company. I believe now is the time for the company to increase my responsibilities and give me a raise.
