Telling Your Boss - Part II
know itís time to tell your boss you are pregnant. Now, you are
wondering how to do it?
Tip #2: Be Enthusiastic
When you tell your employer you are pregnant, enthusiasm matters.
You should have a positive attitude about both your pregnancy and
Enthusiasm about your job is essential because your boss may need
some assurance that you are committed to your career. Even if you
are having some doubts or uncertainty about returning to the
workplace or you are worried about how to balance work and family,
donít discuss these fears with your boss. While it is perfectly
acceptable to inquire about workplace policies regarding leave, you
want to ensure that your boss feels you will continue to be a
reliable, hardworking employee. Donít give them any reason to
Enthusiasm about your pregnancy is also important. While you may
have mixed emotions about how having a baby is going to impact your
life, your boss is not the person to express your worries to. If
you are excited about having a baby, others will be more likely to
be excited for you.
While your boss may never be as excited about your decision to have
a baby as you are, being clear, remaining enthusiastic, and sharing
the news at the right moment can make a difference in your
employerís response to your wonderful news!
