7 Answers You Should Never Give at Work
2. I Don’t Have Time
Everyone is busy, and your boss knows that you’re not sitting around twiddling your thumbs. They’ve asked you to go the extra mils knowing full well it will be tough.
Don’t hide behind the flimsy excuse that you don’t have enough time; if you want something you will find the time to make it work.
3. That’s Not My Department
Your job description does not give you every last detail of your duties and responsibilities to the company. Many people fall into this knee-jerk trap of thinking that they are only responsible for a certain tiny corner of the company’s workings, and they get bent out of shape when asked to do something outside the norm.
Smile and accept the assignment, and you’ll be seen as someone willing to go the extra mile.
4. Not Unless You Give Me A Raise
Do the work you’re asked first and do it well and the raise will follow. If the raise doesn’t follow, then you can go in and ask for what you deserve. Giving this response is a great way to ensure you are perceived as an entitled snob who won’t go above and beyond for the greater good.
