Overall at work, I'm a rockstar. I'll plug along having many months of successes and then seemingly out of nowhere my manager will have conversations with me where he says that I need to work on my behavior which seem to come out of the blue and usually come after I've gotten glowing feedback for long periods of time. Each time, I've asked if he could be specific what it was about my behavior that needed to be worked on so I could improve it, and I never get anything specific, almost like I should know what it is, except that nothing obvious comes to my mind. I work well with my colleagues, I work well with external stakeholders, I work well with our clients, and as far as I can tell, I work well with my boss. For example, last week he told me that he wanted to position me as a thought-leader for the space in which we work and that he wanted me to take a more public facing role in the organization. Of course, I was thrilled and I felt great about getting that kind of recognition. Yesterday in discussion about a project that I'm working on, he said 'I keep trying to help you but you keep going around in circles', but again, I'm not sure what he's talking about.
