What’s the Message?

If you spend time talking about how overloaded you are at work, what message are you broadcasting to your boss, clients and co-workers? Beware, it may not be the message you intended!

Some people use the “I’m a busy person” strategy in an attempt to boost their importance in the eyes of others. Unfortunately, to the astute boss, client or co-worker the message received might be:

  •  “This person is not promotable because they can’t handle their current responsibilities” or,
  •  “This person is too busy to do a quality job of handling my business, I’d better look for someone else” or,
  •  “This person is insecure about their role and feels the need to make sure others know what they are doing”.

What do astute people likely think when they observe and listen to you? What are you advertising with your words and actions?
