Initiative

by Danny Zawacki

Okay, first off, the bus has been early the past two days which is just as bad as coming late. Maybe worse because it’s easier to miss it if it’s early.

Second, my coworker talked me into speaking to my boss about my job position. She listened to a long complaint of mine yesterday and thought about it overnight. She came back with a plan to start the conversation and action items to entice my boss to the idea.

So I sent my boss an email requesting a day and time to meet and discuss. At the very least, she’ll need to reply and say yes or no. Odds are she’ll say yes.

I brought up the fact we are hiring someone to take on some of my job duties which do not really relate to my core work. I said I want to discuss what I’ll be doing instead. I also offered some suggestions, based on what my coworker suggested as things for her to consider. 

What I like about this is that I’m no longer waiting for her to schedule this out of the blue. I have done what I can to get this in motion.

I’ll keep you updated on the progress, if any, what is made.
