Assessment question help - When I disagreed with a supervisor, I most often:
2.Combined our ideas to find a solution.
4 they have to learn to respect your opinion ijs
Trick question, it depends on situation and how it applies.
Number 2 and 4. I have been in this situation before. I found it helpful that we also had a mutual respect for each other's input, and valued each other's perspective.
always get a manager when dealing with a customer that has a problem i cant solve!
I just left long-standing employment for a job where they wanted my 20 years experience to make their department more efficient, etc. Well, I've been there 5 mos & the "system" that's in place is so convoluted, the originator can't keep track of it all. I didn't learn there were over 5 people in my place that either ran screaming or were fired until I got "in." Manager wants no parts of changing to a more efficient way of working - it's her way or no way. Felt I was getting picked on and was going to be next to be let go so I went up the food chain and now am having a 2nd "conference" with her and big boss as they want to keep me blah blah blah. I have no choice but to NOT give my input even though it used to be asked for on a daily basis - "if you have a better or more efficient way to do this, please let me know." The part that's being left out is "I'll listen, but we're going to continue to do it my way no matter what." ARGGGG - I think you just have to wait till you learn whether your supervisor is actually willing to make a change, no matter how small. That was my mistake, I took someone at their word and they didn't mean it at all.
