Is your boss or colleague picking on you?
When you write a report it is never good enough? Do you feel pressured unnecessarily? Are the goals being set for you unachievable in your mind? Are you never given the credit for your work? Does your manager make you feel small, maybe by reprimanding you in public, or by making inappropriate remarks? Or ……….(insert your own particular scenario here).
Are you ready to decide enough is enough. Sometimes in order to make a change you need to get to that point where you know you can't take it any more. This though as you can imagine is a pretty hard way to go. So when you consider your boundaries you might think about pushing them out a bit so that you can take better care of you.
Are you ready to become more aware of your own automatic responses? Until you start noticing what goes on insdie yourself at an unconscious level it is challenging to start responding in a more useful way. So ask yourself: When someone is pushing your buttons how do you respond? Begin to notice so you can experiment with responding in another way. You could be surprised.
Do you think it could be useful to explore your own actions as well as those of others? Then you can start finding out how you can begin behaving in alternative ways so you can have a better result? Or even make other choices….
