Questionto Ask the Workplace Doctors about being outspoken: How do I move up if I am perceived to have an attitude problem because I speak up?
Hello doctors! I have been having a problem at my workplace. I am a server for the my Pub and Eatery, and I have been the head trainer-server for a while. I am outspoken and very opinionated which I believe is the reason I got my promotion in the first place.
However, I’ve been trying to move up further in rank, but my managers say I have an attitude and challenge authority. How am I suppose to move up in ranks if I cannot share my opinions and ideas. I believe it is the reason I’ve gotten so far in the first place. Please give me some advice on what to do about this issue. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank You
