1. Managing workloads
If your company is facing hiring freeze or some of the employees have left the company and there is a sudden rise in work and you are facing extreme difficulties to balance and manage that workload or to even have a bathroom break seems a lot of time wasted.
Sometimes, you do not really find a reason plus a way to communicate about the rising workload because of the fear of feeling that you might offend the boss and lose your job.
The most simple and obvious way to encounter this problem is to confront your boss and communicate to him/ her that t is not possible for you to deliver quality work under such a workload.
Remember, to use a soft and calm voice rather not an angry of passive tone. See and thoroughly understand and communicate with your boss until you reach any possible decisions.
2. Dealing with politics and co-workers
In this extremely competitive work, everyone wants to reach the top no matter whatever it takes to be and stay there. Has it ever happened that you worked so hard for this project and your coworker has taken all the credit for and you could not do anything or your coworkers and constantly trying to put you down and degrade you always in front of the authority?
Remember, to just keep going and not get disheartened and leave the office but rather recollect yourself face it.
Do not stop to always deliver quality work and be your own advocate and portray the best version of yourself. Sometimes, ask the co-workers if they have any problems or just not let them bother because it is not your problem if your co-workers have such sick attitude. Call to mind, to keep going anyway.
3. Incomplete or wrong job description
Sometimes, when you start a job you do not find it identical to the ones written e job description or even in your job interview. Say, if your job was meant to be about client interaction but once you resume the job you find it 90 percent about numbers and 10 percent about the client- interaction.
What you need to do right away is to negotiate with your manager or boss. Tell them that the job you are doing is not the same as it was written or what you applied for.
Ask them if there are any internal or technical difficulties. If they make excuses or genuinely explain to you what the main reason is behind this inconvenience. Now, this conversation will make your mind clear if you really want to continue the job or call it quits.
4. Bullying/ Harassment
Now, this is one of the most distressful challenges you could face at the workplace and that is to get bullied or harassed at the workplace.
Someone catcalling you or bullying you based upon your physical or personal appearances is an act of shame but people do not really understand that and they find it a source of entertainment to pass time or enjoy at the workplace.
It is expected that people who face such situations are more likely to fall into depression and anxiety. So treat it until it is too late.
You should probably confront it with the people who bully you. Try to encounter it calmly and avoid any more arguments. If it starts concerning and affecting you more drastically it is better to not get that over your head leave the place until it rules you and you start lacking self- esteem.
5. Lack of engagement in Job
According to a source, only 38 percent were found to be engaged in their jobs and the rest were partially engaged or completely disengaged. Now, this is because of the lack of passion you have for the job or any other mentally unstable situations.
It is better to take a break and return energetically rather stress the company as well as drain yourself out.
6. Lack of creativity at Job
