Hi all, first of all I wish to introduce myself as a 32yrs old lady working in building industry. I’ve been working for this local ‘Chinaman’ company for almost 3yrs. The pay is decent for single lady like me, but more importantly I love the freedom given in this company, in term of punctuality, working hours, annual leave, etc.
I’m the focus of the company owing to my dedication, passion, and perfectionism to my job. I was given the chance to lead the team to venture different type and scale of project. Until recently, the company finance is badly affected by the economy downturn. We losing many job opportunity. I’ve in my capability try to lead the company into a different direction; a more dynamic, modern and young approach. However, the high management doesn’t feel comfortable with my move as they see it as a breaking of company norm or culture. They tell me indirectly that my orientation doesn’t reflect the company image. They then change the direction back to the ‘old school’ way and we are stuck in the stagnant stage.
Because of this, I’ve been greatly demotivated. Feeling like I’m confused with no clear direction. I’ve always remind myself to be happy because no matter how much effort I put in, the company is not mine; when time come, I’ve to let go.
