Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about sensing a distance from new boss:
I started a new job about 6 weeks ago. It was a tough start as it was in a new country, new internal consultancy role and the initial environment was very toxic with little induction or management/colleague support. I still managed to get a good relationship going with my internal clients, which has continued.
We all now have a new overall director and the environment is changing for the good. I have, however, probably come across a bit tired and jaded after this initial tough period, which has had had an impact on my energy and perhaps other people’s perception. I feel I can get my energy back and getted focused, after Christmas.
