"How to Speak to Your Manager and Really Have Your Voice Be Heard" [Creator's Block Ep. 82]

"How to Speak to Your Manager and Really Have Your Voice Be Heard" [Creator's Block Ep. 82] Blog Feature

Justine Timoteo Thomas

Director of Training, Host of Creator's Block Podcast, 10+ Years of Project Management Experience

August 21st, 2018 min read

Have you ever had a challenging week that pushed you to do and be better?

This was one of those weeks for me.

I've had some tough conversations with team members both on and off my POD, and while it's never fun to have challenging discussions, I know we’re growing because of them. 

I’ve mentioned it on past episodes before, but I recently moved into a managerial role as account supervisor, managing a team of six account executives.

Since I was an account executive before, I feel I have a deeper connection and compassion to the issues and concerns they face.

That doesn't automatically make me a good manager, though.

Having an honest and true connection with your manager where you can share your thoughts and feel like you're making a difference doesn't happen overnight. It's something we all must work towards.

I recall feeling like my voice wasn't being heard and questioned whether I was truly valued in my role and at my company.

We're fortunate here at IMPACT because we are provided with training and resources to coach us on how to effectively communicate with all team members.

In this episode of Creator's Block, Marcella, Vin, and I discuss what we've learned to help ensure you can speak with your manager and have your voice heard.

After all, I truly believe it's because of tough and honest conversations that I am stronger and more confident in my current role -- ultimately enabling me to lead a team myself.
