I am back. Hooray. Another Friday off this week...two 3-day weekend in a row. How nice to have a break like this one after a tiring work week. I have been training / mentoring 3 people in my unit while taking care of the workoad that is increased by 50% due to staff shortage. Some days, I felt like screaming and pulling off my hair. Co-workers stopped by my office every 5-10 mins with questions.
I felt bad for myself and for them. They have tried so hard to figure out the solutions but ended up in my office most of the time asking for help. I just hope that in times (and very soon) their skills & confidence will increase so they can successfully work on more complex cases. Some people will just take more times than the others. And some just want to do it exact the way you may approve. Mentoring other people has brought about good lessons. I need to know that I can't expect people to learn / think the way I do. We all know this but never seem to aware of our judgement we brought upon others at time.
When I train people, I adjust my training to their learing styles but at the same time, I subconcisously expect the same end result. I still expect them to be me. LOL Not that I am the greatest employee or brighter than them. I guess I just have a lot of expectation.
This teaches me to not judge people. I also teaches me to be patient. And I really need to work on that as it is getting harder and harder for me to even complete my work, the stress level is high. There are phone calls to return, deadlines to meet, peole to train etc.
Anyway, under tight schedule, I attended two trainings that are soooo informative! and I learned so much. If I have time, I may write about it. Now if you will excuse me, I have to attend to my dog Butters now. He is running in circles!!!
