BizQuiz: Are you a great employee? (Answer 6a)
Taking the BizQuiz? This is the answer to Question 6.
The first person to tackle your duties should be you. To help, take a few minutes at the end of the day to prepare your to-do list for the following morning. “Ten minutes of planning can be more effective than an hour of action,” says Christiane Holbrook, a professional coach and founder of Inspiration Gym in Pasadena, Calif. If you still feel overloaded, it might be time to talk to the boss. Just be sure you bring solutions to the discussion, Holbrook says. “Perhaps you can delegate something you dread working on. You’d be surprised how many people love doing what you don’t. When talking to your boss, suggest that you would like to take on more tasks you love and you’re good at and give those you dread to others who enjoy them. That turns a potential complaint into a solution, and it’s much more likely to create change,” she says.
