What a difference!

Friday, March 18, 2011

Those who know me, know that i was really frustrated in the job at the School and hated it. Also was loosing my last bit of selfesteem.
So starting with Connected Health had made a difference already, even though the Kenyan Project was on an unstoppable downhill path, the fact that my boss would tell me he likes my work helped me. in the beginning I caught myself looking over my shoulder to find otu who he is talking to.....LOL
Then when the Kenyan Project was folded up and we were integrated in Computech, I was not sure what to think about it. Now I do Customer Relations and Project Management. It is hard work, but I enjoy doing it.
And most of all it is SOOOOOOOO NICE to be appreciated! My colleagues in Logistics keep on telling me they are glad I am there. My colleagues in Sales have told me things like "If we want real solutions we come to you" and my Boss has told me the best of all:
He trusts me and he is happy with my work!
He has told em that repeatedly. Now he wants me to have weekly meetings with him, to "sort him out". He knows he is disorganized and wants me to help him straighten himself out. What a compliment!

Now if that could be translated into a salary increment.......LOL
Well I will wait until the 3 months probabtion are over and then I will ask him.

For now I am just amazed at how big a difference it makes to be appreciated!

    I am so happy for you!!! I bet you can sort him out. And most of all, it is a wonderful feeling to be appreciated, especially coming from such a bad previous work experience. Sometimes it just takes some time to get to the right place. I am glad you found it!!! Rock on, Steffi!
