Work meeting tomorrow

Hi there,

Today I had a meeting with my manager who informed me that she will not consider me for a pay rise next year. I haven’t had a pay rise for 4 years since being at this job.

I would like to present myself in an assertive way at the meeting that I will have tomorrow to discuss this and not in a defensive way (which is my go-to emotion).

I would like to tell him (my boss) that I disagree with some of the points in my appraisal and although things haven’t gone as smoothly this year, there have been many things that have gone well.

Thanks in advance.
