    Blaming Others / Playing The Blame Game

    Blaming Others / Playing The Blame Game

    Blaming others for anything sucks and it's not cool.

    Tips


    Over communicate
    Document / track / keep record
    Speak with manager directly if you feel comfortable
    If it continues you may need to loop in HR
    Further escalation could be cc'ing your manager's manager
    Take ownership / responsibility where needed
    Propose and implement changes to fix larger / reoccurring issues
    Try not to assume the worst
    Keep it factual
    Schedule regular checkins to ensure alignment
    Ask clarifying questions when needed

Easy to listen to and highly informative

I just stumbled upon this today. I'm in the middle of transitioning from a job I've been at for 16 years. I am going on some interviews and I wanted to see how I was doing comparatively. I found more than I bargained for. I needed this cofidence boost and I am so enjoying her content. I'm now going through all of it! Highly recommend. Funny and informative. THANK YOU

Lizz.kx_ ,
