Greetings all. I am employed and working diligently and efficiently. I meet all my targets in time and train my supporting staff who appreciate what I do for them. The problem is my supervisor. in her view, I don't seem to do anything right. I have tried to discuss the situation to her but since she is talkative, she never listens and regards herself as she knows all. I know there are some issues which if worked upon they might bring our company good returns but she discredits all I say. Kindly assist me.

As per my experience, supervisors & team leaders always work on numbers - would be great if you start marking emails to your colleagues keeping her in CC.
Would be happy to share your thoughts!!
Thanks & Regards.

Hereís what you can do:

1. I donít know to what extend your KRAs and KPIs are defined but maintain a task tracker and write your performance in it. Seek feedback on a weekly basis on your performance from your boss. (in writing)

2. Try a different approach to work with her. Just listen to her. Do not add anything. Seek her guidance.

3. Rather than thinking about bringing good returns to the company think about how you can establish rapport with your boss and get along. If your boss does not think well about you then it is going to affect your performance rating.

4. Talk to your bossís boss and discuss the situation with him/her.

5. Observe if her behavior is like this with other team members too. If not, you need to introspect what led to this situation. See how you can resolve it.

6. There are IJPs (internal job postings) in most of the companies. See if you want to apply for something which interests you more.

7. Write an e-mail to your boss and CC it to her supervisor too. Be diplomatic in your email and let her know your performance and ask her what she thinks about your performance and seek guidance.

8. Look out for a new job!

All the best. Let us know how things work out for you.
