Scenarios such as these may sound familiar:
- Your new manager was your peer yesterday. She would not have been your first choice. How do you accept the change to work effectively?
- Your manager has picked someone else to work on an attractive project, when you think you have more appropriate skills. How do you respond?
- Your manager has just given you a project list a mile long – which is different from the list last week. Since you don’t plan to work 100 hours a week, how can you be accommodating yet questioning?
- It seems you are in the dark about the overall direction of the company, despite press releases and town hall style meetings. That understanding would be motivating for you. How do you seek more information?
Join WESTorg on 4/10 to go through experiential activities and develop skills to address these dilemmas. You need to remember that you report to your manager, but you’re in charge of your own career.
