I've been in my Manager role now almost two years (in November) and I'm still struggling to find a good balance with my boss. I feel like we have a good rapport but there are times when she comes at me like I've totally overstepped. In my past roles, I have maybe been blessed to have more flexibility in what I do or better managers.
I run everything past her now before I reach out to anyone, although this makes me feel incompetent to make my own decisions. We have a meeting tomorrow to further discuss process and how I'm supposed to be following guidelines, etc. What is the balance between speaking up and just accepting this is how it is? If I were an associate or coordinator, fine, but I feel like I have little say in what I do in a management role. I'm solely trying to be efficient and do the job I was hired to do.
Am I being too sensitive to this and doing something wrong? Please share your thoughts or any feedback. I'm open to it!
