What if you could invest in your career to take it to the next level, but get your boss to pay for it? Talk about a win-win!

The truth is, that’s not too far out of reach. In fact, tons of people who have taken SLAY Project Management didn’t pay a cent from their own pockets… because their bosses paid for them!

Sounds like a scary conversation to have, though, doesn’t it?

Not really.

See, we’ve put together a really simple process you can follow to get your boss to pay for your SLAY training. Here’s how to do it:

1. Do a little digging.

Find out what your company’s guidelines are. If there seems to be no policy on this, ask your colleagues or the HR department, “Has the company ever paid for an employee’s additional training?”

2. Get the facts together.

In order to present this to your organization, you’ll need to know all the details. You can get the details, including price, when you click here: SLAY Project Management. Remember, it’s an online, self-paced course and you’ll get lifetime access (that INCLUDES future updates and new info added!)

3. Don’t go in blindly.

Use the information you’ve gathered to prepare a pitch about the benefits of paying for your education.

Don’t know what those benefits might be?

Here are some things you can mention:

  • Your boss and company will directly benefit from your project skills!
  • You’ll make your department look amazing with the most well-run company projects
  • Every individual leads projects, and so does every organization. Therefore, project management is a skill that ALL employees need, regardless of their title
  • SLAY Project Management will equip you with a standard way of running projects which brings consistency to your projects
  • SLAY Project Management is applicable to both small and big projects, so it will be easy to implement SLAY strategies in any future project within the organization
  • Career growth is important to you! (I know it is because here you are, reading this, so make sure your boss knows it, too!)
  • SLAY’s online curriculum takes you through the ENTIRE project management process from start to finish, and the result of you implementing SLAY strategies is that you’ll deliver successful projects on time and in budget and have an amazing project success rate
  • You’ll have ALL the templates you need to run a successful project, including email sequences
  • You’ll have access to an exclusive community of project managers for constant support and continual learning

Be honest. If you were your boss, how could you say no to that?

I don’t think you could ????

So, Project Slayer, if the cost of the course is what’s stopping you, then why not jump at the opportunity to make this perfect solution a reality?

I know I’ll be hearing from you soon to tell me that your conversation with your boss went great! I’m THAT confident in you… and you should be, too.
