If you were asked this by your boss, do you know what you would say?
Its a question that’s been posed to me this week, and I’ll admit I’ve been a bit stumped by it. When jobs seem scarce on the ground at times, just keeping hold of mine has felt like enough. But I’m northern, and if a gift horse is on the loose I’m not likely to be asking it to open wide and say “ahhh”. :o)
Would you ask for something reasonable and achievable, or go for broke and ask for something bonkers hoping you’ll meet in the middle somewhere? Would you say you want to learn something that you’re interested in, something which may advance your career, or something that will help your employer? Have you been asked this before and wished you’d have given a better answer?
Tweet or DM me @Beth_AskHer with any insight you have on this.
