Your boss’ vacation is coming up soon. Last time she left it felt chaotic and as if no one was minding the store. This time, you want to step up – for the department’s sake and for your own too.If you’ve been hoping to moveintomanagement, a boss’ holiday could be your on-ramp to show your skills and advance your prospects.Before you start taking charge, though, you need the boss’ blessing to be the fill-in manager.
So set up a meeting and offer your support and assists – and be sure to indicate the advantages to your taking on added responsibilities, said DonnaSchilder, a leadership, career and business coach. Show how it will keep the department moving toward goals or give your boss the opportunity to take a stretch assignment in the future and give you partial responsibility for the day-to-day department operations.
