How do i pick up the pieces?
When my boss tells me i m the worst performing employee in the Centre, ( I think the fact that i work hard is irrelevant at this stage, i feel thats another debate) how do u handle it? Stick around to prove she's wrong or do i simply leave? At this stage i dont feel im doing the company any good if thats how she feels about me. But is it how bosses behave or was she being unprofessional? How do i go on from here?Her exact words " In comparison with all the new people,i must say u r the worst performing....Im not the kind of woman who wants to prove themselves to anybody my life philosophy is to be the best that i can be and Not to compete at any stage in my life i believe life is too short to be bitchy, thats y i want to leave. Am i being a coward am i running away from life challenges? Whats life all about if i leave so unhapppily even though the money is good but my self worth is more important. I dont like the person that i have become bcos of this job. Im 26.
Excellent answers from all, here. Paul is right about many things, including recognizing how lucky you are to have a job, and the value of competing effectively. Liza and NLM are right about the important point that your boss MUST document and be specific about her supposed evaluation. Maybe you ARE performing badly, as hard work doesn't always mean good or effective work. But she is being destructively negative if she just says you're doing badly, without carrying out her duty to be specific about what is good and what specifically is bad about your performance, HOW it could be improved, and indeed to offer further training and experience to improve that performance.
