Hi, please help me help my mother. She has trouble at work that I do not understand, and I would like to find a book for her. She is culturally & ethnically Asian and I suspect part of her problem lies in her cultural differences. She is kind but underappreciated.
She has been criticized for not being a â??team player,â?? for being unenthusiastic, and for poor communication. However, her scores belie her behavior. She feels bound by her sense of ethics to help others in her workplace and several times has steered her less-experienced boss away from decisions that would make him appear foolish and that could have deleterious effects on his tenure; however, she feels underappreciated by this boss and is certain that if there were someone who could fill her workload that she would be fired.
This past week she has worked 76 hours at her corporate job. By herself she has brought the company up to 100% in the area which she specializes in. During her tenure is the first time the company has ever been this way and she has achieved this with no staff or assistance.
Essentially, she does the job of several people by filling the man-hours herself. Yet, she is treated poorly by her co-workers and boss and meagerly remunerated. Help!
