I have everything under control!

Jun 13, 2022 by manish

😎 When I was a new manager I thought my manager has to see me like I have everything under control. 

πŸ™ˆ If I go to my manager asking for help that’s a failure because I am going to come across as if I am not capable of handling my  job.

🚫 I was wrong!

πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ I realized a lot later in my career that I can make the fastest progress if I can be open about my struggles and ask for help. 

🀝  Treat your manager like your thought partner. Collaborate with them on figuring out a solution. 

πŸ’…  This doesn’t mean you should take each and every problem to your manager. They hired you for a reason. 

βœ…  Just know that it’s ok to use your manager as a sounding board and solve few problems collaboratively.
