Ok so I put in a request in July 2016 to reduce my working hours – only to cut down by one day a week. I was told at the time that as our service was being reviewed it would be considered later. Anyway, I have heard nothing but on Friday I was feeling strangely brave so I asked my boss for a meeting to discuss.
Now I am feelin soooo much less brave and am now dreading my meeting with her. She is a pretty scary and excessively tall woman! Eeek, I am supposed to be good at dealing with situations like this and any confrontation- it’s my job! But I am so worried about meeting her. So my question is how do I put my point across – I don’t want to sound like an idiot. I just want an extract day of rest a week. I feel all I do just now is work then home with little energy for anything else. I reckon this will improve my whole work/life balance. I will be more alert for work and hopefully put me in a better place as I will have time to do some of the things I like. Plus I could use this time for appointments.
Anyway – anyone done this, how did it go? Any managers out there – how could I convince you?
Also, should say I work for a big organisation and Work in a team of about 10 so I’m not the only one doing the job, so I don’t have any special or special skills.
