BizQuiz: Are you a great employee? (Answer 6b)

Article

Taking the BizQuiz? This is the answer to Question 6.

6) B —OK

You’re right—the first person to tackle your overwhelming duties should be you. But if you’re regularly unable to finish your duties, it might be time to talk to the boss. Just be sure you bring solutions to the discussion, says Christiane Holbrook, a professional coach and founder of Inspiration Gym in Pasadena, Calif. “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.
