It Does Not Have To Be This Hard!

You’re frustrated and exhausted from trying so hard. You’re sick of being so stressed and worn out. You dread going to work some days, except for the fact you love your customers and your team. After work, you feel like crying. You go home feeling frazzled and defeated.

Alarm bells are sounding. You may even be experiencing stress related physical issues like headaches or stomach distress.

Life shouldn’t be so hard. There has to be another way. You are wanting to experience ease, confidence, power and fun. You want to be the “YOU” that in other areas of your life comes so naturally and easily.

You want to have your colleagues and clients feel empowered in your presence. You want to have FUN at work. After all, you are there a third or more of your life!

You’ve tried being more assertive, only to get called names behind your back. You’ve tried working longer hours, only to come home complaining and exhausted. You don’t need platitudes like “It’s a Man’s World,” “Put Your Big Girl Panties On,” “Suck it up,” or “That’s just the way it is.”

You need help to change your experience of your work and yourself. You want the respect, recognition, and rewards you deserve for the amount of experience, talent, and the time you put into your job.

You don’t want to quit; you want to stay put and learn how to function in your job and workplace culture – without losing your soul, and while expanding your heart!

My Boss is a Micromanager. What Can I Do to Feel More Independent?

Years ago, I was the marketing manager for a bank. Marketing was a relatively new function in the banking industry, and my bosses, who were close to retirement age, did not understand the idea of paying a person to create, promote, and sell customer-satisfying products and experiences.

Because I spent much of my time visiting branches and community events, I wasn’t often seated at a desk where they could see me “working.” They feared that I was not getting my job done. They were getting the impression that the time I spent outside the office wasn’t in service to the work they hired me to do. (more…)
