What is your interacting with others hurdle #1?
I do not meet one-to-one (either in person or by phone) with my boss at least once per month.
What can you do?
– Schedule a regular meeting with your boss, either in person or by phone. If you rarely speak to your boss, you are at risk of becoming irrelevant and invisible.
– Schedule a regular meeting with your boss to ensure that you do not only talk when there is a problem. If you talk with your boss only when there is a problem, you are not raising your visibility with her.
– Schedule time with your boss and ensure you talk about your career, progress on goals, and areas of interest which you both share.
