    Over advantage of being polite at professional life

    I am working in sales team of an automobile company. I am a fresher in this industry. Sometimes it happens with me that when a walking comes, every sales advisor asks me to attend that and if it is a hot inquiry, they want to take ownership to themselves. How can I revolt against this as my employer too usually takes their side?

    hello,
    well as you are a fresher so you can not deny that , so you must not complain about this. this will increase your experience and knowledge. so you should do that and being fresher these things are little normal. so you can gain knowledge through this. but if you really don't want this so you can directly talk to the manager. he will understand for sure.
    Good luck

    Dear it is not fair with you when you are at good position and when you do not want to attend any type of meeting which does not suits you then you are clearly tell to everyone that i am really sorry that i can not attend and if possible then you should complain against this from your senior officers because there is nothing can be done forcibly in the office during to working hours and tell to every member of your team that please do not try to force me inter this because i really do not want to attend any type of meeting and tell them also that you can go but i would not come to that and if they are thinking to get ownership in their hands then you should not think about this because it is not so easy but if you want to get increment in your position and your performance so that you should do something more profitable and different for your company so that the company provide you promotion soon

    All the best

    Hello,

    Thiese are nothing but office politics.And it is clear from your post that your colleagues behave like politicians.Complaining or revolting against them wont help you.Since you are new in this field,they are simply taking advantage of it.But you need to handle this tactfully.Never lose your temper in front of them.Let them be what they are.You focus on your work and keeping your mouth shut continue with your work till you achieve your seniority.Once you gain some experience,they will shift their focus towards some other junior employee in order to establish their seniority.

    Dear Aspirant,

    Don't worry & have patience.Since you are a fresher,you are entrusted to take up such work.Continue to do the same for another some time.When new freshers join the company,you will become senior & at that time you will also have right to instrust your juniors to do such work.

    Since now you are a fresher,it is not good to revolt otherwise you will loose your credit of well being which may not be good for you as others will start disliking you & you will get least cooperation from your seniors & employer.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..

    Hi friend

    I can understand your position but as you have just joined your company, you should learn to deal with such things . Most of the freshers encounter such problems and you are no exception. The seniors will always gring you in this way and try to take advantage of your being a fresher. As you can't disrespect them or offend them directly, so you have to learn to deal with such behaviour and also keep on performing brilliantly at the same time so that your management takes notice of your talent.

    As your sales advisors want you to attend every walking that comes , so you should definitely do it as it will be good for your future and you will , with time, become perfect in it. These small experiences later on come very handy in your life and am sure will make you very successful. You have to learn to deal with such initial hiccups in your job without which you cannot be successful. Let your seniors take the ownership of hot enquiries to themselves, as your time will also come when you will be in their position.

    Keep on working hard and you will surely taste success. Good luck

    Being polite is one of the key factor in professional world.It is an essential requirement to gain success and have a bright professional career.You should not revolt to this because this is normal since you are a fresher.Rather you should learn from the experiences that you are getting.

    You should look at this positively.It is natural that in hot inquiry and in important clients,the experienced will handle the ownership because it is the matter of reputation and future of the company.So you should not be disheartened about not getting those important inquiries.

    Instead,you should aim at making the fullest use of all the opportunities that you are getting.Try to give your best in the small inquiries of which you are given responsibility.Try to complete them successfully and learn from your mistakes and failure.Try to enhance your experience through small inquiries and not repeat your mistakes.If you can carry on with your work efficiently then you will also get the opportunities to take ownership of hot inquiries and deal with important clients.But before that you have to win the trust and faith of higher authority through your work and the results that you will produce in all the opportunities given to you.

    Hi..................,


    Being a freshor you really can not say anything for this....
    Just work as being told and prove that you are working hard.
    Your hard work will be seen and you will get benefit of it.
    So either work as told or leave job if facing much problem.
    Rather you can request but i do not think it will work.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Such situation is common with freshers.
    But it will increase your experience and is good for also.
    So you can do it whenever you free if they ask.

    But if you are good position and do not want attend their meeting.
    Then tell them no and say sorry that you cannot leave your position.
    Once you refuse then they will not force you more for it.

    If they force you then you can tell it HR manager.
    He will surely understand your problem.
    And will also help you find a solution to it and get rid of such behavior from others.

    You must be bold and strong.
    Do not be too good to any one that they start taking your advantage.
    Being good is nice thing but too good and too polite is not nice thing for yourself.
    Help others but never make your loss while helping others.
    This world is a fair world if you make it.
    So do what it right for you.

    All the best
