Significant situation - When I am provided with the decision making ability
I provide good outcomes to the Business
which results in good relationship and value that i am providing.
Years ago, someone I was working with described me as their mentor. I was very surprised as I'd never thought of myself like that! It made me realise I had useful experiences to share that would help others.
@ margaret -you definitely have so many of these - I had useful experiences to share that would help others.
When I was young I had to deal with a very difficult client. Finally one day I lost my temper with him over the phone. To my surprise he said he was pleased, and he says how a person behaves when they are angry is more important than when they are nice. After that he was very nice to me and treated me as an equal. I learnt that relationships need to be on an equal basis with mutual respect.
I have always gone beyong my position description
as i believe new opportunities bring new learining
I think everyone has to play politics, it’s inevitable. What I try to do is to use my moral compass and always act with good intent.
have you experienced a challenge where your Manager was not supportive of your career intention - if so what was your approach?
Do you have some advice on how to convince someone to sponsor you?
I have mentored someone who felt their manager wasn’t supporting them. It was hard.
I have also been on other side of fence, where an employee felt I was not supporting them. There are often multiple sides to a story, and it helps to realise everyone is a human being, and sometimes your manager is constrained as well.
In my job relationships are very important, they make the difference whether what I do is successful or not. I am probably not as good at relationship building as I like
