    Boss expecting too much from me at one time

    I am working in a software company. As I am one of the senior employees, my boss expects too much from me at one time. He expects me to complete my tasks on time, to help in some of his tasks and also to do his personal work at the same time. I donít think it is fair on his part to put so much pressure on one person. How to deal with such a situation?

    hi
    first of all I would like to tell you that if you think that boss is expecting too much from you then it is a good thing for you, because he belives that you have the potential to do some great work that is why he is over dependant on you. Now you need to tell this same thing to him that you are expecting too much from me and due to this my work performance is adversely affecting therefore kindly release some of the work load from me

    Pressure is the common feature not only in professional sector but also in every individual's life. One has to deal with it and handle it with perfection to achieve success and raise to great heights.One who gets depressed by it and surrenders before it or breaks down and unable to perform under pressure can never attain achievements and success.Hence it is an important factor in every one's life and one has to learn in handling it well.
    Working pressure is common in the professional arena especially in the private sector.It is a common complaint among the employees that they have to deal with high working pressure but it is the need of the modern world.This is because there is high competition among various firms and one has to compete well to sustain in this world. Since you are a Senior employee,so it is natural that your boss will expect more from you.He will definitely have high expectation since you are handling the pressure well and performing for quite a long period of time.However,he should have also realized the limitations that he should be bound to and not pressurize you much.This is because it can hamper your work and your performance level to a great extent.So you should look for a solution to this. Approach your boss.Tell about the pressure that you have to handle.Speak about your burden of work that you have to accomplish within a given set of time.Make him understand the problems faced by you because of the extra burden and pressure.Request him to look into this matter and seek a solution to it.Assure him of your good effort and hard labour.

    Dear Aspirant,

    It happens to those who are in very good book to the boss.It means you are very reliable to your boss.You can handle your problems very easily.If some others employees are under you,you can pass some of the responsibilities to them.Train them to work accordingly.If the work is done in time,then you may get credit to it otherwise you can report to your boss that the particular responsibility was handed over to so and so,but he could neither informed me or complete the work.In that case the particular employee may either be transferred to some where or some other action may be taken against him/her.

    If you don't have any hands under you,do the important work first & yhen next one.You can say to your boss which work should you complete first either personal or official.As per his direction complete the work according to your capability.

    Thanks & good luck.

    hi,
    i can understand the pressure you are facing. but if he asking you for some help in his work then you should not complain about that. even you are in a job so doing the task in the specified time is the part of your job. so you should not complain about that.

    he trust you that much that is he asking for your help not of anyother. you are having an good image in his eyes. you should not break that. rather you seem little stressed of this , you should take care of your health. might be your weak health is the reason behind the irritation. so just eat properly, go for walk in the morning fresh air, time to time check up would even help you. balance your diet.
    you will be doing your work without any problem if your body and health would be perfect so just calm and be focused.
    thanks

    You need to discuss this matter with your boss, tell him that you like that he has faith on you for which you are given those responsibilities and you are giving your best to handle those

    responsibilities but at times you gets overloaded by the amount of work which is effecting your performance.

    Ask him for reducing some amount of work so that you can work more efficiently and give your best.

    Until and unless you communicate your problems with your boss he won't be able to know the problems you are facing in your work.

    It is great to heard that your manager is expecting too much from you.But you have so many work pressure that you can discuss with you boss. As he know your capabilities so he will help you and reduce your work pressure so that you can concatenate on the other works too.

    for grow in your career you can sacrifice that much.

    Dear friend according to your statement it indicates boss is exploiting you or tries to exploit you ileegally.

    To overcome this situation you are to handle the the matter correctly being a senior employee you have the
    friendly relations with all then it will be easier for you to tackle the situation.You must not do or help more
    to your immediate boss harming yourself.As a senior you have the good knowledge about you company
    such help and extra work only help ful to your boss and he will get incentive from the higher authority your
    sacrifice and extraordinary work will not yield fruitful result.Your boss will try to convince you it is your work
    you have to do all works.So never give him privilege harming yourself.whenever he ask for extra work you
    should give good history of normal work, then he will leave his odd practice.

    Thank you,

    Hii,
    This is a very typical situation. The least you can do is to request him not to handle you his personal work in a very polite manner. By the description you have given it seems that Your boss is very frank to you, so I'd suggest in a casual talk try making him realize the amount of work load pounded at you at once. And whenever you are assigned a job you think you are unable to do or its difficult for you to do it, you can refuse to do it politely at the same very moment, by not making excuses but by sharing your genuine problem. Hope it helped

    Dear you are already on senior post where a lost of work and pressure available in the office and in such case you may not manage your all work easily because completion of task is not so easy at this time but you do not need to take tension about this and just care for your works only because completing your responsibilities is the first preference for you and if you will help your boss then you will not be able to concentrate and get good command in your work that is why if you got 15 days for any work then you should complete that work in all 15 days with peace and if you think that giving help to boss is also compulsory then you may give them one day means complete your work in 14 days but if your boss ask you to complete that in 10-12 days then you should not and tell them that work is too much which is not so easy to be done soon that is why it will take a long time and by following this method you may easily manage both boss and your work

    All the best
