Are You Doing a Good Job?

Written by Dave Balch

The word is "perception". You may be doing a great service for your customers, but leaving them with a different perception of what you've done.

I learned this lessonrepparttar hard way. As a programmer/consultant at a large medical facility I was given an important program to write. It was a critical component of a critical system that was supposed to be operational by a certain date. I worked on it mostly from home. My client didn't see me very often, and his perception was that I was goofing off; procrastinating untilrepparttar 117624 last moment. As a result, his anxiety level was high, to put it mildly. In fact, I was doing a GREAT job for him, putting in extra time and even a few extra features.

My bad. I should have made a point of letting him know what I was doing so that he would feel comfortable in knowing what was going on. I could have done this in a number of ways both subtle and not-so-subtle. Subtle: "While I was working on this at home last night, I came up with a few questions." Not-so-subtle: "I know you haven't seen too much of me lately, but that's because I've been working on this project at home. I didn't want you to think I was putting it off".

The point is this: if you're doing a good job for your customers, make sure they know it!
