HBR, Not Getting What You Need? Take Ownership

If you aren't getting what you want from the people you work with, it's time to take ownership. Ultimately, you are the one responsible for strengthening your skills and developing your career. Ask for direct feedback from your boss. Talk to your teammates about what you can do to make your working relationships better. Find ways to lighten your workload if you are overwhelmed, and seek out new projects if you aren't challenged. Seizing initiative will not only further your own professional development, but will have a positive influence on your boss and teammates, as well.
Today's Management Tip was adapted from "Exert Ownership in Your Workplace" by John Baldoni.
