EP020: Q&A, How Can I Get My Unfair Boss to Notice My Hard Work?

Do you have an unfair boss who doesn’t recognise the hard work you do? Do you want to know how to deal with an unfair boss and get them to see the value you contribute? 

Having an unfair boss is a difficult situation to be in as an emerging leader. If left unresolved, it can lead to you feeling a lot of stress and anxiety in the workplace. It can also lead to you being held back in lower level positions for longer than you should.

In order for you to advance in your career and level up as a leader, you need to get your boss to notice the contribution you make and the value you bring to your team.

If you have an unfair boss who doesn’t recognise the hard work you put in, you need to address this issue with them.

In this episode of The Leadership Pod, I guide you through four steps that will help you get your boss to notice your hard work.
