I dont know if we DO this here (and Mods can move this to the right forum)... But I am asking for your prayer support. Things at my work are getting really bad. My business unit's sales have halted! I know this is a function of economics and cycle rather than my sales team's performance. But I've been down this road before. I know what the pressure can do to people (me included). Bosses can get very nasty when under this type of pressure. I'm trying my best to shield my people from them. Unfortunately, I dont deal well with nasty or cruel people (which is how leaders can become when sales are down)

If those of you who pray wish to help, PLEASE pray that my company's leaders find wisdom rather than panic and become un-glued. Pray that I can lead my team into adapting to new condiditions and get us out of this pressure pot.

Thanks in advance!

Much love,

Thank you all.

Its gotta change...cuz I wont stay to be abused.

I feel trapped in these situations (like back then) and panic BADLY!!! I WONT do it!!!

That's partly why I've had 11 jobs in 14 years

They top bosses have been getting nasty to my people. During a conf call today between one of these bosses, me and my crew, he got really pushy and a little abusive.

I hit back with some evidence-based rebuttals in a firm voice I've not heard from me before. He backed off and stopped the attacks.

This is huge for me....Normally, I'd have been out the door by now. Why out the door?

1) Cuz I will never let them throw ME out..I have to leave on my terms before they can throw me out.

2) I never stand up to these people in these scenarios. But I did today...what's up with that?

Sounds like you found your voice in the face of abuse, Rob. Congrats! That took some hefty courage.

Rob,

As we begin to face our issues, at first all we feel is pain and distress as we relive what was done to us. In many cases we are releasing feelings we have buried for years, and as all that floods out it really REALLY hurts...as if I need to remind you.

But at the same time, Rob, we also begin to see and understand the huge impact that CSA has had on us. We begin to understand that so many of the bad feelings we have been carrying for years about ourselves are just NOT TRUE. That in itself encourages us to challenge the old, broken dysfunctional ways in which we used to view ourselves. We learn that we can empower ourselves, that our feelings and needs DO count, that we have talents and merits - personally and professionally, and that it isn't our task to tolerate a lot of unreasonable crap.

This is the foundation of the confidence we need for our recovery, and I think what's happening is that you are beginning to develop this foundation and use it in your own life. Pretty cool!

Much love,
Larry

Rob

I am so glad for you. Ever since I started standing up for myself at work they think twice before taking me on. You will see that will happen. How do you think I got the equity?

Proud of you!!
