Not every leader feels like they have enough tools to succeed. If you are a leader or an individual contributor who's not supported by your organization and feel like you are set up to fail, you really have to understand what your boundaries are.
You have to know what are the things that you are willing and not willing to do because that's going to help you figure out and determine what your next step is. If you're willing to do something, then you'll be able to navigate to the next steps.
If you are an individual contributor, have an honest conversation with your manager to set up some expectations and transparency about how you feel. Let your manager know that you're not feeling like you're set up for success.
Practice interacting with others beforehand to be clear about your message because the more clear you can be, the more likely you're going to get the results that you want. A little bit of planning goes a long way. It makes a difficult conversation easier.
If you don't feel comfortable with your manager, engage with your HR person who you feel comfortable talking with. It's okay to ask for help.
They can help you navigate the conversation because there should be a comfort level so you can have that open space and open conversation with your manager to get to the next steps.
A lot of times, managers think that they may be setting up their people for success, but they are not. You have to place yourself in the driver's seat and take control of your career.
You don't want to be in a situation where you are set up for failure because that's not going to be helpful for you at all. You want to be in a place where you can be successful and set up for success.
Don't wait for your organization to make a change. Take immediate action steps instead that you can control which can set you up for success. It's okay to take small steps if you're moving towards a place of comfort level.
