    My boss wants my team to be successful in our present project, otherwise I will not get my increment

    I am working in a software company. I am the team leader of one of the projects. My increment is due for the next month and my boss has already warned me that if I donít succeed in this project, I wonít be given any sort of increment. This is making me very nervous. What to do in such a situation?

    You should convince your boss that you will give your cent percent and rest will depend on god. But tell him that it is not fair to take in between the increment the success of work.
    Even after convincing he didnt convince then you have no other option but to carry on with your work with full confidence. And dont think about the incriment or any sort of things that will help. Keep your mind happy and you will succeed as well as get your incriment.

    good luck

    dear friend,
    actually it is the technique in the private organisation that they increment if you complete your job successfully so that in greed of increment you can do your work successfully.so,don't be nervous.
    in spite of being nervous you should care for your project so that you can achieve a success in that and you can get an increment.also if you focus on your work without any selfish intention then your work must be efficient and you will get a success in that .
    as you are the team leader you have to focus more and inspire the other employees so that after the successful completion of your work you can get an increment as well as appreciation from your seniors.
    thank you !!!

    as a team leader there is tremendous pressure from the management side to make the project successful and also you take the responsibility to get all the team leaders on board for implementing the project successfully and do give your best in making the project best one of all the projects which others are doing.. The only basic requirement is to satisfy the client with the project and you should in turn get 100% satisfaction according to clients requirements only.. So its the performance appraisal which makes an increment in your salary and position there is no substitute for performance.. Its not warning you that you will be fired if you won't succeed take that negative point out of your mind never think about bad always think about the success and the feeling of being successful will make you and your mind more focused and also concentrate to bring out the best abilities out of your team members as well so its ok even you work overtime work day and night to achieve all the success in the project . Firstly plan yourself how to achieve things and put the plan to make it a planning implementation and achieve things .. Don't demotivate yourself and be down in spirit when your nervous than what about the team you should take the responsibility and charge and fire up the spirits and bring in the enthusiasm and yes we can attitude will bring a change and energy in you .. Being nervous and fear can lock your mind and your abilities try to keep a interest on work focus on work leave your extra activities think and relax concentration powers should be a divine work in you it can bring the energy and lot energy that will tackle negativity its not that your thinking about salary its a secondary think forget about increment only target is what you need to achieve .. Believe all the power is in you you can do anything and everything that is given to you.. Failure is just a state of mind take it out be positive in making and encouraging every employee in your team.. Assign target to all your team members make them report every day take stock of developments if you find any difficult and hurdles then deal with it never run away from it face them defeat your hurdles move ahead to achieve your targets and be the one to lead with motivation..

    Sometimes you might find coding and programming difficult in software testing so its important that you get your best programmers recognize talents in your team and get them at work if at all you involve in them forget who you are and focus should always be on the project only.. Its important as team leader that you manage your team this is vital part of making a team successful and efficient enough to get anything in terms of reaching goals..

    Communicate the loop holes of the project if you find them bit wrong and if your done with the programming and coding then you can send for software testing and requirement of additional requirements mind it that you design the project with all the client requirements its very important that you get the response from the manger of projects say yes for changes never get frustrated if your told wrong and be relaxed in approach and be confident and make others confident on you .. If your down the team is down remember nobles lead the path and others follow up all the best

    Every boss play these kind of tricks with the employees because they do not want that their employee take the things lightly and becoming greedy for the promotion to work properly , so these are the only way the boss can take the work from the employee, so you need to ask from the boss that if he can give that in written because if after a lot of hard work projects get successful and he not fulfill what he said before then it will be the heart breaking situation for you and your team members so you need to take the precaution before it gets too late.
    Because it happened with me and my colleague when our boss said that he will promote us after the successful completion of the task but after the completion of the same task successfully he ignored both of us like we are just like an worthless creatures in this world and that was the painful situation i never want to remember anytime but today your question makes me remember that thing again.
    So you need to make sure that project will get successful if you work hard or not because it is a team work.
    If you not give your 100% somebody else will give his so the work will be completed at any cost and the reward will be given to those who never did anything as they are the relatives of the boss .
    if there will be any problem then a company can do anything.
    So never believe to your boss they changes their mind according to the situation, as they will not see the employees future they see the company future.

    Dear Aspirant,

    It may be possible to stop your salary increment in case of not being success in the present project.But nervousness is not the solution,instead you should try to complete the project in time.It can be very well done if you plan in the well manner.You should have clear strategy to complete it in time.You should make a list of things to be required to complete the project.Things may be man,money materials,knowledge or any things.You should discuss the matter with your team members in order to complete the projects.

    If you need any help from your senior boss,you can very ask for the same.Need not hesitate for it.You may also refer the past record related to the previous project so that you can get help from it.

    If you decide,plan & then work with interest & integrity,you can very well complete your project in time.

    So try well & get success.

    Thanks & good luck.
