Discussion: May 11, 2010 Ask The Headhunter Newsletter
A reader asks How to Say It:
I’m in a new position and coming up on my 90-day review. I like what I’m doing but my new boss is inconsistent (moody) and micro-manages (control freak who insists she wants me “to be the expert”). Do I have any options for broaching these topics in a diplomatic way?
Hmmm… Who’s reviewing whom? I like your perspective. You want to candidly review your boss. It seems your boss has two strikes against her already. And if she isn’t willing to talk about changing her style, the third strike may hit you in the butt on your way out the door…!
Okay, folks. How do you say it? How do you tell your boss her style is affecting your work without getting yourself fired?
