Just a quick post about something that has bothered me this week.
I started a new job as a trainee auditor and so far I’m enjoying it. I’ve not made any major mistakes but one thing that is clear to me is that I have to change the way I think about the job. I’m sort of in a supervisor role and have two people working on a project I’ve been leading.
One of the people I’m supervising made a mistake, which led us to losing a customer. Some people have said it’s not my fault, while others have said I should take some responsibility. Personally, I should take some responsibility for it because I didn’t do a handover. I assumed the person would be fine.
My question is this: I need to change the way I think about the job. I’m learning lessons as I’m going along and seeing how I should approach tasks. I need to change this thinking. What is the best way of doing this? Writing it out? Visualising ideally how I should deal with situations?
Any replies / answers / suggestions would be appreciated.
