Currently going through a phase at my company where I feel like I’m under minded and though I’m in a senior role, given mundane tasks to do. Which isn’t engaging me or helping me to contribute to the wider team. Any advise on how to have a conversation with my MP? I’m 6 months in this new company.

Hey this is a good opportunity for you to create more work for yourself and own something new. I’ve got a really talented PM and I was basically underutilizing them. They asked if they could take on more responsibilities and I said “absolutely.”

I’m not great at delegating but I certainly did appreciate their willingness to ask and find more things to do. They’re now totally invaluable to our team.

Any way you can just take new projects? Find something that sucks and fix it? Could be operational or strategic. If you’re in a senior role, maybe they’re hoping you could take the initiative instead of waiting for tasks to be assigned to you?

Hope this helps!

The case you ll need to build and present is why it makes business sense for you to delegate these mundane tasks.

One way to do that is by doing something which is of much higher value (business impact) and sharing the wins with the broader team and your approach on how you accomplished it.

Depending on your bosses you may have to repeat the above a few times before they realize (some bosses are slower than others when it comes to realizing true potential of their team members) and give you the resources you’re looking for.

I wouldn’t expect them to stop giving mundane tasks inherently, especially if this has been happening for a while. Chances are, they don’t have (or know they do) anything of higher value to assign.

Take charge and lead with example :)

Hope this helps.

In past life, I was a Senior AM at a digital agency. I was initially assigned clients with small retainers ($750/m). 3 months in I came across an opportunity where the agency was struggling to setup tracking (pardot meets GA) on a client paying $100k/m retainer. I provided the solution and it worked.

Within 3 months, 80% of my clients were 20k-50k/m and up and eventually got my hands on clients with 100k+/m retainers.

Case I’m trying to make: They won’t realize the impact you can deliver, until you show it to them, a few times.
