I recently had a conversation with a former student of mine. Larry works for a large insurance company. The career path within the company that he would like to take is blocked. Larry needs the support of his immediate supervisor. Unfortunately, that supervisor won’t support him.
The reason the supervisor won’t support him is that this supervisor gave him a project. The supervisor told Larry that it needed to be done by a particular date. At the time, Larry said that he couldn’t finish it by that date. Larry gave the supervisor a date by which he felt the project could be reasonably completed.
Larry did turn in the project by the date he gave the supervisor but not by the date that the supervisor gave him. The fact that Larry did not finish it by the date given to him by his supervisor now is killing his career advancement within that company.
