Just because your boss does something one way doesn’t mean you have to do the same.
If it does not align with your values then don’t compromise.
Find a way that keeps you on path and aligned to your beliefs and goals.
For example your boss promises a client he/she will deliver on the day they want. Your boss keeps them happy in that moment by saying yes. But then he/she never delivers on the promised date and makes up some excuse as to why it’s not his/her fault.
Or worse your boss promises to the client and expects you to drop everything to deliver and puts you under huge pressure! (if this happens to you, feel free to give me a call to discuss how to speak to your boss to prevent this happening again!)
When you are in the position of agreeing a delivery date, if you know you will not be able to deliver on their requested date tell them at the time.
The question is would you rather be known for delivering when you say you will or never following through on your promises.
So often the client will be fine with your delivery date, perhaps it’s not their ideal date but if they can rely and trust you will deliver when you say you will they will be happy.
If you need help working through differences you have with your boss, book a consultation with me today.
Love your life!
