Are you plugged in? Is your energy operating on high? Or are you missing part of the connection?
How your leader responds to this is important. You want to have high energy and perform and optimum levels because you love your job and what it does for people. Sadly your leader is an energy sapper - sucks away the energy as opposed to an energy zapper - giving you energy to move forward, be creative and innovative with your solutions and project development.
What to do? Let them know. Try to identify for them what they are doing to sap the energy from you. Let them know what inspires you and gives you energy to perform at your peak. Leaders are human and can need a hand understanding what works best for you - let them know. They will thank you in the end!
