Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about stuck with nitpicker image:
A year ago I got promoted to a supervisory position. During the first few weeks into the job, my lack of management know-how has caused me to offend a lot of employees and created for myself the image of a nitpicker. Since then, with better training and learning from the school of hard knocks, I’ve made drastic improvements to my management style. Armed with positive feedback from employees and my immediate managers, I repeatedly asked the director for more job responsibilities so that I can further improve myself and acquire more experience to move along in my career path. Each time his response was I needed to work harder.
