A friend Asking for Advice About a Problem at Work- Informal letter
A friend of yours has recently written to you asking for advice about a problem at work. You have had a similar problem at your workplace in the past.
Write a letter to your friend.
In your letter,
- tell your friend how you feel about the problem
- explain how you faced a similar situation in the past
- suggest possible solutions to the problem
I hope you’re doing well. I recently got your letter and learnt that you’re going through a rough patch at your work, which got me concerned about your situation. However, let me tell you, dear friend that it is part and parcel of the corporate world.
I can completely get into your shoes and understand what you may be going through, given that I’m in the same domain as you. I went through the same phase when I was given an additional role to analyze the dashboards and prepare an insight report for the collected data as the bandwidth of the organization was short. However, I talked about this to the management, and they understood how this was adversely affecting my functionality.
I’d suggest you have a one-on-one discussion with your manager or the HRBP as the management is prudential enough to take note of what its employees are going through.
Remember, “This too, shall pass.”
