I have always been the respectable and good employee. The management has been very impressed with my work all this while but since the last few months, my performance has been down, it has certainly not been great, I have not been able to achieve the targets. Honestly, there was a clear lack of verbal and monetary motivation. For a long time I have been on a low payscale and designation, I’m not saying that’s all that matters but somewhere somehow it may have affected me. I have very few people under me which is a good learning experience and I am directly reporting to the super boss. Recently, I started bucking up, becoming more confident and completing my pending work. It was day 2, and my Super boss called me to his office. It started with normal talks then slowly it turned to taunts, indirect references to how bad of a manager I am, not directly but by giving someone else’s instances. etc etc and I am not sure about how I should react to this. Right now I’m even more demotivated and upset and moreover afraid that this might be a cue or a signal or maybe a warning that I can be fired. I can’t share this with anyone else. I have potential in me but instead of helping me improve, this approach was taken. I used to be great, now I’m not. I want to be that girl again but I just don’t have the mind to.
