Q: I have a female boss who is constantly cutting me down. I always believe women should empower each other but lately I feel like I can’t do anything right. She is bringing out a side of me that I hate. How can I get her to understand that I am doing the best I can.
A: First thing, is there a part of you that wants to combat her accusations? If there is a possibility that you are messing up, own it. No big thing! Thank her for the feedback and know that you are human. No one is perfect first time around. Now, if you aren’t doing anything “wrong”, from a non-reactive heart – get curious. Set a meeting, a time to discuss how she views you doing the job and in exchange, you explain how you are best able to thrive.
