Q: Why doesn’t my boss spend more time with me? She’s always so busy.

A: Just like you, your boss is probably asked to wear many different hats in her organization today.


Pretend you have a new boss. Pretend that you are your new boss. After all: Your boss is probably very busy and can’t always take time to recognize your strengths every day or help you course correct so that you stay on track and accomplish the necessary results.This is very typical, since most organizations are lean today and depend upon people to do quite a few things during any given day. So why not start doing it yourself?Here’s the cool thing. In order for “your new boss” new boss to be effective, S/he has to treat you well and care for you all day long. That means that your self-talk has to be kind and nurturing.Your new boss will have time to check in with you all day long— at least every hour. S/he is going to tell you that another hour has gone by. S/he will ask you what you’ve been doing during the past hour. You’ll be commended if you handled it well.If you got off track— no worries. Your boss will cheer you and and tell you that you still have a few more hours to set things back on the right course.
