How To Deal With Time Management Issues In Order To Sustain My Job?

January 5th, 2010 by ROZEE Team

Question From Job Seeker

I am a business development officer at a firm. My basic task is to carve out a specific niche of clients and convince them to take my firm’s services through a chain of presentations and meetings. I am hardworking, motivated and cooperative and have a natural flare for sales and marketing. That is why I have been performing very well in this position and have gathered a number of large clients for the firm.

However, there is one aspect of my professional attitude which disturbs me and my company alike. I lack in the time management of my tasks. My job involves serious deadlines from both the clients and from my managers. Due to my inability to manage time, I often find myself facing sheer embarrassment. It often happens that while being over-burdened with a delayed presentation, I work very speedily, and my phone keeps ringing with a client’s call, but I am unable to answer it. And, before I realize, the line drops and I miss the business.

The frustration I feel, when I cannot accomplish my tasks in a set amount of time, is overwhelming. I am much worried about it because poor time management skills can lead to the termination of my employment. Please help me out.

How To Deal With Difficult Colleagues When My Appraisal Is At Stake?

December 29th, 2009 by ROZEE Team

Question From Job Seeker

I have been working with an organization for more than a year. I like almost everything about it, i.e. my job, my work and the workplace. However, there is one thing that bothers me the most. Some of my coworkers are very hard-headed and difficult to deal with. Basically, the kind of work I do, requires an enthusiastic team-work, like sharing of ideas and mutual creativity. Basically, I come up with the concepts and the said colleagues have to make graphic designs on it. The problem basically occurs when, after much hard work, I come up with a brilliant idea, and they produce relatively low quality graphics, resulting in absolute deterioration of my idea. Due to these few thorny colleagues of mine, I am unable to give a first-rate performance at the tasks assigned to me.

These things did not bother me much in the past. However, just recently, I got to know that every employee is to be given a pay appraisal in a couple of months, on the basis of his/her performance throughout the year. After learning this, I have become much worried about my performance which has been negatively affected due to the difficult attitude of my colleagues. I have only two months to rectify my image and enhance my performance in order to get the appraisal. I need your expert opinion as how can I deal with these colleagues who hinder my progress through their non-cooperative attitude.
