Hey friends so today I wanted to talk about how important it is to communicate and in particular I want to highlight the importance of communicating what you and your team have done to your higher-ups. So anytime that you or your member of your team does something spectacular you should send an email to your boss or to your teammates bought.
So there's nothing wrong with saying hey boss, I did this thing and it was really difficult and I really glad that it worked out and I just wanted to let you know kind of celebratory whatever.Theres there's a way to do this that isn't cocky um and the way that you do that is most of the time you don't accomplish this without the assistance of anyone else.
And so you can say, hey I boss like I had this problem and I worked with these other people and we figured it out and we just did an awesome job and I just wanted to let you know that your team is awesome. I love working here. A Boston lab stitch here emails like that.
You can also do this if it wasn't your accomplishment, but somebody else's and so you'd say, hey, I just wanted to you to know that Sammy did.This amazing thing and she's just a rock star awesome person and yeah, I love working with her whatever you wanted to say there um, and I think the reason that I think that this it's important for you to communicate these sorts of things is most of the time like this is the manager's part of the manager's job is to get an idea of what's going on on the ground, like actually working on the product and it just helps them to accomplish their job, but it also helps you to communicate to your boss the sorts of things that you like to work on.
So,You know if you really enjoyed working on this particular task, then you say I loved working in this it was really awesome opportunity. Thank you for giving me this opportunity. If you didn't really like it you say, hey I accomplished the thing. I'm glad that it's over. I never want to work on this again.
It just gives you an opportunity to connect with your higher-ups. And if you're saying something like this to someone else's boss that's even better because it makes that person and you don't have to include them you might like BCC them.On the email to their boss's boss or whatever But it makes them feel really good and feel a connection and maybe there will be some reciprocity, but that's not why you do it.
It just it increases the positivity in your organization, which I think is good. It might give them a pay raise whatever and especially for those of us in privilege positions. I think that it's really useful to do this as a mechanism for lining your privilege to so I would really recommend this for you in that position.
So anyway, I hope that you take an opportunity this week and just like,Find something that you can send to somebody's boss or your own and do it. See, ya.
