- As we move further into the 21st century workplace, building a sustainable and rewarding career means more than just doing a good job and showing up on time. Our boss, our boss's boss, and our competitors are watching how we work, what we do, and how we own our careers. Sometimes to get what we want, we have to ask directly. After all, hoping someone will reward us, acknowledge us, or give us what we need, is not a strategy. It's just that, it's hope.
My name is Lida Citroen and in this course, we'll discuss the why, how, where, and what of having an honest career conversation with your boss. I've spent 20 years in the corporate arena consulting with executives and businesses about creating pathways to communication and getting what we want. So if you're at a place in your career where you need to have an honest conversation with your boss about what comes next for you, you're at the right course. I'm going to help you, whether you're seeking a promotion, you want more job responsibility or additional training, or even if you have to fix a mistake in your career.
We'll discuss how you prepare for and handle your career conversation, which will determine what you receive and how you're perceived going forward. I'll share with you what happens when you open a truthful dialogue with your supervisor and how to add honest conversations to your career repertoire.
