    What should I do if I am uncomfortable with my team leader?

    I am a female employee working in a private company. Here we are divided into teams. I have been recently shuffled to a new team and now I am feeling uncomfortable with my team leader because of his weird behaviour with me. What should I do?

    Hi,

    I suggest you should talk the same to HR regarding the issues you are facing rather than taking the same to your current boss....

    Next step is you should try for another job at the same time... unless you got some job try to work there and make your leader understood that he should behave properly...you should behave in such a manner...

    Another thing you have to know, whether you have asked for the shuffle or it is company's policy....
    Only HR can provide you better solutions.

    Dear if you are not comfortable then you should go to the manager of the company and tell them about this issue and they will definitely solve your problem because this is not good in the working place and at anywhere and when you are getting problem then you should not stay in that team just like that, you should go to the management and tell them that they take you out from that team and list your name and allow to work with either previous or any new team because if you will not be comfortable with your team leader then this thing will definitely effect your performance in the company and this is not good for your career that is why to save your career and performance you should raise your voice and request from the manager that they provide you another team leader or segregate you from that team and also tell them that this is not going good in you company and this is really not good for the image of the company and for all other female employees and also say that you are unable to work with them anymore so your manager will add you in the new team

    All the best

    It would be better that you first talk to your leader and make him know that you are not comfortable with his behavior.

    As it is possible that he haven't noticed it and thus would be unaware that you are not feeling comfortable.

    Being a leader he must understand the problems of each and every member in his team.

    This is a quality of a leader, so if there is any confusion than you can solve the matter just by communicating with him.

    If you don't get a solution than you can talk to your HR or your boss and explain everything to him.

    As if you have such thing in mind while working in a team than with you the performance of the team will also suffer.

    So such things must be cleared as fast as possible.

    hello,
    convey your message that you are feeling uncomfortable for being in the team.let your team leader know the situation you are in.may be he does not know how to deal with a female team mate.say him directly that she was feeling somewhat awkward and about the way he behaves.
    if he understand your situation and if he realizes his fault and if he behaves in a good manner then the situation is solved.
    if he again does the same thing then you can directly contact your boss and say him the situation and say him that if you want to be a employee in that office then shuffle me to a new team or else say that i will resign the job.
    thank you...........

    Dear guest,

    We find these kind of situations in every place. For a fact since you are a female you have a liberty to complain about this to that particular co-worker. It is simple. Just plainly tell him the fact that his actions make you uneasy. Don't shout at him.
    You can even report the particular thing to your HR and ask him to change your team. I am sure your HR will understand. If he doesn't change your team you can tell hi. That you would wish to leave the company as well.
    I am sure you will be kept and your team changed.

    thank you...

    hi
    there might be the case that you might not be good in adapting the work culture or a new team which works on a different track. Therefore blaming your new boss for it, is not a remedy for it. Instead, it is advisable for you to get along with the team and try to mould yourself in the same environment in which they work. It can appear as your strength that even you are not liking the environment, still you doing your part really well in it. You can even mention this thing in your future interviews in different companies as well, you can always present this situation as the transformation in working skills category.
    Gud luck

    Hello,

    This happens to a lot of people and you are not an exception. If you are not at all comfortable with
    your Team Leader then you should talk to the HR regarding the issue. But first you should tey to sort
    out the issue with your Team Leader. Adaptability is the name of the game. You need to adpat according
    to situational need. It is mandatory to work under different Team Leader in different project so you should
    give yourself sometimes to get used to the situation.

    Bye,

    Hello Friend...

    Make sure that is it only you who is uncomfortable, or even the other group mates who is facing this...

    If anyone else face the same problem, then yeah go to your manager and put the issue n front of him...

    Being a manager, it's his duty to see the comfort of the employees for better results and profits of the company...

    But beware, everything should be handled in a very polite manner...It shouldn't be a problem to any of your colleagues including your team leader..!!

    ThanQ...
