You will never be able to convince some people that your way is right is the best way to avoid conflict and still get the job done.
Sin Sidara: I finished the assignment on the documents. Did you get a chance to review them, sir?
Boss: Yeah. I already reviewed them. It was pretty good.
Sin Sidara: Since it was my first project, I was wondering if I can get some feedback.
Boss: Well, you finished the project on time. And seeing how it was your first assignment, you did very well.
Sin Sidara: Thanks. If it wasn’t my first assignment, where do you think I need to improve?
Boss: That’s a fair question… I think you could have spent a little more time documenting the difference between Process A and Process B. You showed a lot of the similarities, but lacking a little on the differences.
Sin Sidara: I’ll keep that in mind. How about the structure? I changed the template a little because I wanted to add a section for recommendation.
Boss: I liked the addition. Usually people just enter it into the comment section on the bottom but having a clear section makes it stand out. That was good.
Sin Sidara: Was there anything else? I like to get feedback early so I can improve.
Boss: No problem. Everything else on the assignment was great. The only other tip I can give you is sending me more updates. If I knew you were stuck on section C for a while, I could have saved you a lot of time. So keep me aware on your status.
Sin Sidara: That makes sense. I’ll do that. Thanks for the feedback.
Boss: Don’t mention it. And good job on the assignment.
Sin Sidara: Thanks.
