    Missed two very important meetings due to some personal problems going on

    I am working in a private firm. In the past one week I have missed two very important meetings and now I am afraid that this will be a bad mark on my reputation. But I had some personal problems going on and thus could not attend them. What to do in such a situation?

    Dear friend,

    You should ensure that you should be able to keep you personal and professional life separate and not let one effect the other.

    There is a code of conduct your should follow while being in the office or in your professional sphere.As you mentioned, in one week you missed two important meeting. It itself show that you yourself are aware of where you lack. I would suggest you if you are going through some personal problem. Please take a short holiday and solve it or atleast find out a way to solve it. As if these incidents happen again, you are going to mar your reputation permanently and you are keeping you career at stake.So instead of fighting with everything and getting nothing, I will suggest you to take out sometime and handle things one at a time.

    Good luck.

    Hello Friend,

    We are human being and each of us has our ow issues to deal with in personal and corporate life. Life is not a bed of roses and each day it teaches us something new. If you have missed two important meething due to personla problems then you should talk to the concerned authorities and explain them your situation in a polite manner. I do hope they will understand your point of viw.

    Don't be afriad of your reputation. The fact that your are very concerned of not attending two meeting is a proof that you are a responsible person. These days responsibility is a rare thing.

    Bye,

    Dear Aspirant,

    One employee has to look after many works such as official,personal,family works,children education etc.But there should be some principle of discharging all responsibilities.You should have your official responsibility in the first priority.

    When you had some urgent personal works which caused you to be absent from the important meeting,you should have applied for leave or you should contacted your immediate boss & got permission to be absent from the meeting which would have saved your fear & impression.

    So follow the steps as stated above in future.Now when you are asked for explanation,submit your explanation pretending for illness or sickness & assure the management to inform in advance,if the situation arises in future.

    Hope you will be able to manage the situation.

    Thanks & good luck.

    You should not think about the personal problems while you are doing your office work.It will ruin your career.As a responsible worker you have to attend all the meetings which are conducted by your office.You should not think ,more about the personal problems.personal problems are common for every individual but if we think about this issue we cannot come forward in the life.so,attend all the meeting,and interact will your colleagues from now which out thinking of any problems.
    all the best
    thank you

    Hi,
    Have you inform to your senior that you are not able to attend the meetings ?? If you already inform them(either few hours before meeting) then its ok, because you have some urgent/personal problem.
    But if you don't inform them prior to schedule meeting, then its quite complex situation. Then you have only one solution and that is:
    Just talk directly to next working days and try to explain your problem in polite manner, i am quite sure that you will be not face any problem with above solution.
    And also take care in future that you have some responsibility regarding to company also, so just inform them prior to meeting.

    In professional world there is no place of personal life so if you like to get away of all these problems then you need to act smartly because if you have missed the meetings then it will be your mistakes so always you need to inform the boss that you are not been able to handle the meetings because your personal problems are getting worse day by day so you are unable to handle the things properly after that your boss will have to find the alternative for you to handle meetings.
    If you not share the problems with the boss then he will not understand the situation because these kind of problems can happen with anyone so its not a bad thing to share the problems with the boss because if you not share the issues then it will be worse situation in terms of profession.
    According to me its always better to raise your hands when you are feeling that you cannot handle the thing anymore because its not good to make the things worse, and its better to reduce the risks of mishappenings.
    After that you and your company will also not suffer with such situation.

    • In order to succeed, you must not mix up personal life with professional life.
    • Every one have various personal problem but it doesn't mean they get diverted from their work.
    • If you missed two important meetings, then it's definately damage your reputation in the company.
    • If due to your absence in meeting, it has lossed the company then serious action will be taken.
    • If you contact the boss directly and explain him the reason of absence, it will remove the bad impression in respect you from boss mind.
