In an interview of co-host of NBS Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski by Erin Skarda of Time magazine, Brzezinski gave 7 tips for women to take into their next career generation starting “Don’t act like a man,” “Be authentic” to “Be ready to walk,” and “Shoot for respect first, friendship later.” http://ideas.time.com/2013/03/08/women-at-work-seven-ways-to-negotiate/
In the interview, she used the word, “Drama” three times seemingly in different meanings in the no.5 and 6 tips.
V. Lose the drama
Knowing your value means knowing when your stock is low. You have to go into at a high-value moment in your career. Don’t play the drama card unless you’re ready to follow the next step.
VI. Be ready to walk
Suze Orman said that women should save up for eight months before they think about leaving a job. Be ready to walk in some way, shape or form. If you’re not, it’s just drama, and nobody’s going to buy it.
I don’t understand what “Lose the drama” does mean.
Though OALED provides definitions of ‘lose’ under 12 different headings, my understanding of the verb “lose” basically means ‘to fail to win, fail to keep stg.” Can you tell me what’s good for ‘losing drama’ as a tip for successful deal?
To me “drama” of “Lose the drama” and “drama” of “It’s just drama” seems to have different meanings.
Is ‘drama card’ an alias of trump as a terminology of card-playing?
What does '“walk in shape or form” mean?
