I am the office manager at my firm. I do not manage people...I manage the office. I have been here 6 years so I am a "go to" person on many topics. I just sense that I am not as respected as I would like to be. I would like to "up" how I am perceived, regarded and respected. Our office attire is business casual. I keep it pretty basic with black pants, bright sweaters, scarves etc. I would love to wear heels as I think they change how you are perceived, but due to foot issues, I cannot. One example of a time when I did not feel respected/treated as a manager: I was talking with an instructor from Red Cross who had just led our office through CPR/AED training. This was a debrief on how the sessions went and what was coming up tomorrow. A coworker, junior to me in longevity, just busted in and started commanding the conversation. She would not have done that to a senior manager. Maybe this is just a rude, ill-perceptive person. But overall, I would like to get some feedback. Thank you!
