Tough Chat

It can be hard for some to try and have a tough chat with their manager, especially when it’s around something they feel could of been handle better by him or her. However, often times it’s not all about what you say, but how you say it and where.

Have The Conversation In Private First

  • There is nothing wrong to me in questioning your manager authority, but it’s best in my opinion to have that 1:1 tough chat in private first. I say that because if the roles were reverse, the average person will want their manager to show them that same respect, oppose to bringing it up initially in a room with other people around.

Convey Your Concern(s) In Your Normal Speaking Tone

  • You should go into the meeting with your manager with an open mind, while being cognizant to try and not voice your concerns using a loud tone, since the message you want to communicate can easily get taken the wrong way with that approach. Also, be sure to get your manager perspective, because it might of been something you did unknowingly that triggered their response.

What is a tough conversation that you’ve had with your manager/supervisor before?

Root Cause

Most people I talk to that currently don’t enjoy what they do for a living usually list money as the reason. Yet, I often tell them that money can’t be the root cause why they don’t enjoy their current job, since most things we do for leisure as humans we don’t get paid for but pay someone else for the service instead.

Thus, the focus in my opinion should be on doing something for a living that you’re passionate about and that piques your interest outside of work some, oppose to just chasing a check on who is willing to pay the most.

Have you ever had a job at a place where the pay was great but you didn’t like it? If yes, what was the root cause why you know or think you didn’t like it?

Take Pride

It can get tough sometime at a job to stay motivated, especially if it’s not your job dream job. However, it’s important to take pride and do your best in whatever you’re currently doing for a living.

Remember the company can take the badge and laptop back if you decide to leave, but the knowledge and experience you gain while working there they can’t get that back.

As a result, you can utilize those things to be an even more valuable employee at your future job(s) and be in a position to demand even more throughout your career as well.

Have you ever had a job that you didn’t take pride in? If yes, what was your reason why?

Job Change

Your current full time job, like everything else in life will never be perfect. However, there are some things that I feel are deal breakers and key signs that it’s probably time for a job change.

  • Not being Compensated Fairly

The average person you ask will tell you that they probably should be making more at their current job. Thus, when you don’t feel like you’re being compensated fairly and have brought it up to your manager, based on whatever is the average pay of your position in the job market, it’s time to look for a new job.

  • Hate Going To Work When It’s Time

It’s one thing to had a vacation and not be looking forward to your first day back at the job. However, it’s another thing when you literally hate going to work every single day. This can impact your performance in doing your job in a negative way as well.

  • Not Challenge Or Stretch On A Regular

If you’re not being challenge on a regular at your job that’s an indication that you’re responsibilities aren’t growing. Furthermore, if your responsibilities not growing through the years, it will impact your earning power in making more money at that job in a new position opening or at a new job, especially if you’ve only been doing the exact same thing(s) for years.

What are some other key signs in your opinion when it’s time for a job change?
