New position

August 2nd, 2014 at 05:44 pm

I start my new position at the end of the month. The restructure is mind blowing. I'm mad at myself for not negotiating the salary given the enormous responsibility I am taking on. I want to be excited but I not. My boss is super alpha and controlling. I have more knowledge about the position than management. I hate feeling stuck.

Aug is a low spend month...I need to pay off some bills since my pay structure is changing.

Life is still good. Thank goodness for family and friends who lift your spirits during difficult times.

    Change is always a challenge but you can feel confident in your skills and knowledge. Obviously your employer think very highly of your ability and you know your colleagues and what to expect. Wishing you well and an easy change of roles. Have you ever read Branson's book 'Coping Effectively With Difficult People?' It's old but may still be available on-line. Might be of help with alpha boss.

    Thank you for the encouraging words and advice. I'll check into the recommended book. The next several months will be challenging. I'm looking into ways to deal with stress. Chocolate is my solution but doesn't work for the waistline Wink

    I find it helpful to cope with things that go wrong, people that disappoint, problem solving and stress by going for a brisk walk. I usually take the dog if I'm home as he listens to my problems, I don't look like a crazy lady talking to herself, and dog thinks brisk is better. At work I use the stairs rather than elevator when stressed. Don't need to walk up all the floors just enough to feel more controlled or change the locus. I think I'll add a square of dark chocolate.

    Do not be upset about the salary, because by showing yourself in a new position you can ask for an increase in salary.
