Learn Techniques To Get Your Boss to Listen To Your Ideas and Requests
There are few things worse than feeling that your boss or manager isn't listening to you, or giving you the time you need to talk. Sure, there are managers who never will listen to employees, but the majority of supervisors and managers WILL listen and give you some time, IF YOU APPROACH THEM properly.
How You Approach The Boss Determines Their Attention
Managers often feel overwhelmed, and many are working incredibly long hours, so when you have an idea or a request, let's say to talk about a raise, it's natural that your boss may not feel a sense of urgency, amidst all the other urgent business.
If you want to be listened to and heard, your task is to approach him or her, and communicate in ways that will cause the manager to "sit up and listen", because you make it compelling and useful to listen.
So, HOW you approach your boss is going to determine not only the time you get, but whether your supervisor pays COMPLETE ATTENTION to what you have to say.
And, of course, If you can't get the attention of managers, decision-makers and other people who can affect your career, and you can't talk "the right language", you aren't going to get what you want.
Whether you approach your boss for a raise, or additional responsibilities, or have this great idea to solve a problem, it's ALL in knowing how to present it.
