Did I just say that?

I am part of a business improvement group at work.  A few months back, the unit conducted a survey of our ‘key stakeholders’ and this week there was a workshop to analyse the results and brainstorm ideas for new improvement projects.  I was in a group with my manager’s manager.  I’ve not had many conversations with her and I certainly wouldn’t claim I know her well.

Anyway, I came up with a few ideas that went down well and at the end of the session she asked me if I would be prepared to participate in one of the work groups.  I said, “Extend my contract and I will”.

  1. Great move, and good luck

    • Thanks, but it wasn’t really a move. I just mis-read the situation and opened my big mouth. Luckily, when I apologised the following morning, she didn’t think anything of it.

  2. That’s awesome!! I like it! And are they going to? They’d be crazy not to…

    • It’s not really up to her – it’s (mostly) dependant on someone who is on maternity leave. If she comes back, the dominoes start to fall.
