Do any managers do more than just manage and lead the team?

Currently I manage the team, manage accounting, handle HR, handle marketing such as documents and emails, provide all of the technical support, and sell.

My boss still works from home and only looks at the phone report to check the productivity. They refuse to look at my reports or complete activity logs. Because I have 4 hours of no phone activity daily, my boss believes I am not working hard enough.

While I was a level 1 manager; I led a team, played the role of Hiring Manager, along with Attendance Manager.

In the moment, I was super stressed. I can’t tell you how to handle that, because I didn’t handle it well. Fast forward and with the benefit of hindsight, it was a blessing in disguise. It prepared me for future opportunities and helped me build the multitasking skills.

Right now with the COVID life, I try to find time to disconnect for an hour or two and just spend it not thinking about work at all.

Everyone is different. Mine is usually in the morning. I’ll walk up around 4 or 5, listed to a podcast or music. Maybe play a video game. Just something to relax before the grind starts.

Keep your manager informed about all of what your afe doing. When I say informed, I mean give them so much information they tell you to stop.

While I am not a manager I recently had a situation where my boss thought I wasn't being as productive as I actually was. The problem? I failed to hi e him updates on what I was doing. Now, I give him every other day reports on all of my activities.

My boss is now going to add additional tasks beginning next week to "fill in my day." I went from working 8 hours to about 10-12 a day, and have not taken a lunch in weeks due to my workload and in order to close new deals to keep up with the team (as it was requested).

I am beginning to feel a bit burned out not just from work, but I also have 4 kids that are virtually learning.

My question to the MEGA multitasking people out there is this. How are you managing your stress and avoiding mental exhaustion?

Start applying elsewhere. Salesforce is hiring!

Would it be wrong to tell my team that “40 hours (chargeable+non charge) is my physical limit and all I can give right now”? Given that they know I’m pregnant. I worked 70 hours this past week and it’s looking like there are more to come. I want to wrap up what I have (so probably a couple more OT weeks) and start setting more boundaries. Is that reasonable? I don’t want to sound like “I’m pregnant and I need special treatment”, but I simply do not have more in me physically.

My quota is based on invoiced sales that resets quarterly. This includes a sliding-scale commission % based on how far you’re at on your quarterly goal (towards quota) which is checked/paid once a month. The only thing that goes toward our quota is PAID sales. This excludes orders still being processed by DE (largest orders) and customers still within NET payment terms. We don’t get paid until the company gets paid. Am I missing warning potential? Am I being expected of A and judged on B?
