I've been trying to take a step down in position at work for the past month. It was a decision that was long and hard to make, but I felt it best for the company. Rumor went around that a replacement for me had been hired. Although I felt relieved, I also felt that I had disappointed the person that had promoted me and believed in me.
The company big boss for my department (the one who promoted me) showed up at my location today - very surprising since he hardly comes in. He asked my manager and me to go with him. We ended up having lunch together. He then began to explain that this step down is a decision that is entirely up to me; they both said that they don't understand why I would want to do this. They also added that the new person hired was there to replace the problem employee that I had. He then said that he was not going to let me go anywhere (with a wink). I was offered a bonus that assistants don't usually get.
Upon leaving, my manager left my evaluation on our desk. It very nice....
The one comment he made on it was: "Stresses too much."
So........ What is YOUR good news today?
