paracetamol is reading in the park
I just had my end of year appraisal at work. Interestingly, I’ve always felt that delivery is the most important aspect of the job, but most of the criticisms were about my relations with other people. I guess that says something about my focus in the job. It almost seems that they’d rather I delivered less and was better with people. Whilst I’m good with customers, I’m less good with people in my local team – although most of my work is done in collaboration with other teams rather than my own due to the nature of the work. It’s difficult when there’s so much pressure to take the time to socialise with others on work time, but it seems that culturally, this is important. It’s ironic, because I come to work and think how unsociable and miserable my colleagues are. Maybe what I’m seeing is a reflection of myself.
