If you're ready, get him ready. This is a guest post by Karin Hurt. If you’d also like to guest post here on JobMob, follow these guest post guidelines. 1) Understand His Perspective Work to truly understand his view. It’s likely that your current performance is a factor. Understand what you’re doing well in your current job from his perspective, as well as where things are breaking down. Resist the urge to talk about “promises” made by other leaders, or your expectations based on those discussions. 2) Be Real Share what you’re feeling and why. Gently share specific examples if it feels right. Laugh about how you’re just not “Tommy” anymore. He’ll relate… he was once a “Tommy” to someone too.
