1. Get the timing right. Many people are afraid to ask for training budget, because they can’t seem to find the “perfect time” to do it. Well, there’s no perfect time to ask for, but there are definitely some moments that are better than others. For instance, if your boss is about to take a two week vacation, she might be in a good mood. If he/she just lost a major account, may not be wise at that juncture. 2. Make a case for yourself When you ask for budget, you should be prepared with specific details about what is in it for the company and your superior to send you as well as with an explanation of what you’re asking for. If you go into a meeting and just say, “I want a to get budget for a conference,” it’s likely that your request won’t be taken seriously. If you want to plan ahead, then you should be prepared to explain the following points: This event will increase your productivity You will need less supervision You can bring back the knowledge to the company
1. Start by stating your accomplishments 2. Show that you’re ready for more responsibility and eager to learn 3. Follow up
