Just go in and listen to what she has to say. Be completely honest and don’t let her intimidate you. You have the upper hand in this situation. You have the possibility of a new job, she’s the one that could potentially be losing a great employee. If she offers you a raise or anything tell her that you appreciate it but you’ll still be keeping your options open. Don’t let her bully you or talk you into anything you don’t want.

ARGH… looks like you’re already in your meeting (if we’re in the same time zone)

BUT… don’t feel bad about looking for another position. It’s a better opportunity and enviroment and well… you have a right to have a standard for your job, just like they have a standard for you.

It’s seems as though you’ve handled everything professionally and so there should be no fault on you.

Hold your ground with your Supervisor’s boss and like a pp don’t let her intimidate you. If she can’t act professionally then do what you can to calm and control the tone of the meeting and then kindly excuse yourself as you aren’t seeing eye to eye and maybe re-visting this after the holiday would be best.

Sorry you’re dealing with such un-professionalism. I know that’s a hard place. Whatever you do you do whats right as seen professionally ie. not just leaving with out notice, etc. And you should be fine ๐Ÿ˜‰

Keep us updated! I’ll be praying for guidance and wisdom in this time for you… what to say, not to say, and when/when not to say it!

And congrats on the new season of your life…. b/c even if you don’t leave I forsee your stance and holding your ground requiring a change of tone in your current enviroment ๐Ÿ˜‰

She sounds totally unprofessional. If she really valued you and wanted you to stay she would have at least let you interview for the position above yours. Sounds like she has control issues and likes to cause a scene to get people to pay attention to her. Chances are you’ll realize later how much of a blessing it was to interview for the other position.

((hugs)) Sorry she was like that. GOOD JOB on NOT bashing her… that definitely would not be professional… even if this other position we already set. Keeping your reputation and name clean is always a good way to go ๐Ÿ˜‰

Take some time to get your head clear again and get back with that other position =)
