I am a sales manager for a real estate company. My job is to recruit agents and then get them to close deals.
Sales have been down lately. For many reasons, I am having trouble recruiting good agents, and the market sucks.
My bosses boss (the owner) just put the hammer down on my boss with pressure to make things move.
Because of this pressure on my boss, he is turning around and being a real jerk to me. Putting undue and unrealistic pressure on me.
I have basically given my life to the company, I work more hours than could ever be asked of me, i make my own sales when its not even required of me, I help other people out all the time, and I dont think his unrealistic pressure is necessary or appreciated.
I want to tell him hes being a jerk, or that hes putting the pressure on the wrong person, but is he being a jerk? is he putting pressure on the wrong person? I work much better with positive feedback, so how do I get him to let me know that I need to miraculously pull sales out of my ass, without being a jerk.
And should i just turn around and call my agents and be jerks to them? I am not sure that would help.
I wish I could have Horstman in my ear when I call him
