Update: The meeting today went really well! On several occasions I pushed my boss as hard as I needed to for her to make a decision. So from not making any at all the whole spring she went to making a bunch of them today. My life is going to be so much easier from now on! :) Thanks everyone for backing me up on this!!

Being on the last day of a four-week-vacation, I would expect myself to be rather relaxed. Instead I found that I'm more or less just as wound up now as I was when I went on vacation. However, I've been thinking a lot about my work situation during the past weeks, and I think I've managed to identify one of my major stressors!

I am a first line manager and rather new at it. I'm sure I would do just fine if I were just given a set of game rules to go by, but unfortunately I'm not. My second line manager has difficulties making decisions, and of course that affects me. We've spent hours and hours discussing the same topics over the past months, and nothing has come out of it. So part of the problem is wasting time by not coming to decisions and part is not knowing my game rules.

Solution: I, the other line manager, and our second line manager have a meeting planned for tomorrow. I plan to really put pressure on her re a few of the things we've been discussing during the spring and force her to make decisions on them by saying that I will take everything but a "yes" as a "no" (including "maybe" and "I can't really say"). Keep your fingers crossed that it will work...
