So it’s only Tuesday and I am so ready for this week to be over. At least it’s shorter because I am taking Friday off.
Anyway, work has me overwhelmed this week. There is a specific person that I need to interact with lately and the drama that this individual has constantly has just completely drained me. My patience level is just gone and usually I have plenty to go around.
And then in my other new duties, I feel like the people I answer to now don’t have any idea of what I actually know and can do. It has been a hard adjustment for me to move from reporting to someone who gave me the control to accomplish the things I needed to accomplish (with support when needed, of course). But now I feel like every decision I make is being questioned and every question I ask is being over analyzed as to my motives. I am hopeful that all these things will slowly ease away and I am sure that I need to take a step back and realize that I need to earn my trust with a new boss. It’s just been a long time since I had a new boss.
In another aspect of my job, tomorrow is an exciting day for one of the health centers that I am now overseeing. There is going to be an open house to introduce a new provider at the practice. I am looking forward to supporting the staff as they settle into their new roles.
