Beating Interacting with Others Hurdle #1

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.
