10 Reasons Your Boss Wants You Out Of The Job by Rating(m): 4:07pm On Nov 14, 2017
Do you have

Here are ten signs your manager is planning to replace you:

1. Out of nowhere, your boss assigns you to cross-train another employee on your duties. That’s a sign they don’t want you around any more!

2. Your manager used to include you in planning sessions and share their ideas for the future with you — then one day, the brainstorming stops and you don’t know why.

3. Your boss stops inviting you to meetings you always attended. It’s an obvious slight — so obvious that other people ask you “What did you do to get on the boss’s bad side?”

4. Little by little your manager starts pulling your most interesting and high-profile projects away from you and reassigning them to other people.

5. You had a plan for the new year already approved, but now it’s like that plan never existed. Your boss pretends they have no idea what you’ll be working on next year.

6. You used to deal with high-value clients and work closely with your manager. Now your boss is freezing you out and will only communicate with you via email, or via an intermediary.

7. You can’t get in to see your manager. They won’t meet with you.

8. Your email messages to your boss go unanswered for weeks. When you stop your manager in the hall and ask them something they say “I’m too busy for that. Get on my calendar” — but your meetings always get cancelled.

9. Your co-workers keep stopping by your desk with confused looks on their faces to say “The boss asked me to set up a time when you can show me how you prepare the month-end package. Can we set up a time?” They don’t know why the boss gave them that assignment, but your gut knows why!

10. Your trusty instinct is telling you “My boss wants me out of here.” Above all, listen to your gut — it will never steer you wrong.

Do the best you can to get a severance pay or a letter of recommendation (for 'proper' companies). For the most of Nigerian companies, that might not be possible so, start dusting your network.

Better still, ALWAYS have a side hustle. It works as a cushion when some bosses go crazy.

This one is now very common. And some bosses will conveniently blame the Nigerian economy while they keep feeding fat.

A true boss will only want you out of the job if you are inefficient.

A vindictive boss will want you out of the job for diverse reasons ranging from envy, to witch-hunt, to you refusing to give ass.

But one salient silent reason is;
Our village people.

Those banker guys they sack I swear do not see these your signs coming.

They come to work one morning dressed in suits and boooooom they are fired, sometimes with no severance package. Sometimes some of them just won the best staff of the year, month or even week and the next day they are gone.

Am not doubting your list, but tryna remind you that Nigeria is a complicated space that beats every rule grin

The title could have been "TEN SIGNS YOUR MANAGER IS PLANNING TO REPLACE YOU"

Besides, let's always try to give credit to original authors. The content of this topic with the above title appeared in Forbes online magazine this week.

This is the kind of mentality that gets a lot of people LAZY undecided (I really disagree with this mentality. If you truly hustle your way to the billions, you keep hustling, not just sleeping. YOU KEEP HUSTLING!)
