Work relationships can be one of the most difficult dynamics we will ever need to navigate. As opposed to our personal relationships, we often do not have the luxury of picking and choosing whom we work with, who is in a team or who a company employs.
Do you go to bed on Sunday with the Sunday night blues and wake up with feeling the effects of another “manic Monday”? Perhaps you feel anxious about where your career is heading or if indeed you’re in the right career for you?
It’s often very easy to forget that whilst you’re full of admiration or perhaps even secretly envious of those people who seem fearless in the face of challenges, who are awarded promotions, or who are able to confidently present themselves well and seem self assured in both their personal lives, relationships and careers, what you may often see and compare is their shining highlight reel to your backstage clutter. So if you’re comparing two different sides of a coin, what is there to compare and why do we do it?
Saying ‘YES’ can mean so many different things and have many different consequences for each of us within different situations and times of our lives and careers.
