I’m In The Wrong Job

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday.

Perhaps some of you are in this similar state as with the letter sender.

Sharing with you to help pull your brilliant self back together and rebuild your “mojo.”

Dear Human Workplace Team,

I’m in the wrong job.

My new boss has taken credit or kept me from moving things forward the few times I’ve contributed meaningfully.

I am doing meaningless tasks after years of managing things.

I’m finding it impossible to just disengage, do whatever my boss tosses at me, and believe I will get back to a place where I feel valued.

I had 15 great years in jobs I loved and 1 bad one.

Any ideas how I can shake it off? It feels corrosive, and I want to feel spunkier while looking for a new job.

About Emile Therese

Emile Therese is a graduate of the University of Philippines in Diliman with a degree in Psychology. She is happily married. She and her husband, Dennis, are blessed with one amazing daughter (and hopefully at least one more child). She believes that values and character ought to be taught as early as possible and that these are key to community and nation building. This was also how she and her siblings were brought up by their two awesome parents! She is a Certified HR Professional who advocates employee engagement in its entirety. Emile believes that true employee engagement rests on the pillars of basic human needs and in ensuring that process and leadership basics are in place - the employee engagement imperatives. She hopes to contribute to making this world a better place for all of us now and the next generation. She loves sipping tea, conversations, reading and writing. The latter gave birth to two blogs - Purposeful Parenting Journey (purposefulparentingjourney.com) and Engagement Imperative (engagementimperative.com).
