Question: I have been immensely enriched with the advice to my previous queries. Now, I have another.
I work in coordination with a two-member team and supervise their performance and productivity. I am very driven and committed in keeping my deadlines and completing projects, so I sometimes initiate the reports and tasks they are supposed to do, so that it gets done and things run smoothly.
While that mission is accomplished, when it’s time for the reports to be presented, the credit goes to the wrong people for having got it done, and they look so efficient and with it, while I know for a fact—based on various other incidents—that they would not have done them otherwise.
I would not like to see things come to a standstill or get messy because these aspects are ignored, so I get them going, but I would like the management to know it is my initiative that got it going, not anyone else's. If someone reminded likewise, I would surely bring it up at some point and mention their name so they get the credit, but that never happens here. What do you suggest? -- Anonymous
