Your boss likely knows:
– Whose taking advantage of “the system.
– Which teammates are not acting like teammates.
– Why people are saying one thing but doing the other.
– Which employee is putting forth minimal effort.
Your boss also knows:
– What results you’re achieving.
– How late you’re burning midnight oil.
– Your habits and patterns (indicators of motivations).
– How much you really care.
The disconnect between boss and employee plagues some teams. It shouldn’t be so.
Yes, your boss may not be leading the way you would. The question is: What are you going to do about it – while still living and leading from your values?
There’s also a chance your boss has good reasons for taking (and not taking) the actions he or she is. If this is so, what actions will you take?
Responsibility always seems to come back to those with awareness, even when we wish others would show some.
(If you are the boss, the words still apply, don’t they.)
LOL. Fantastic thinking in this post. Awareness is a skill that we have direct responsibility of developing in ourselves. This is not matter of nosing around but assuming responsibility to be an active team player, investigate, learn and think how to serve the organization and to our own leaders (and bosses). Who does not want to have a team-player that legitimately takes ownership to help us in our role as leaders? If you identify one, nurture her-him…you have a real leader in your shop.
