3D Juggling 443: Take cover
Claire writes: 'I'm back to work after 5 weeks off when Lynn and Jane have been covering all the goings on at 3D. When other people cover, it's a great way of noticing whether or not your systems are working - does everyone know what they need to know? It's also a good test of delegation. If you've just come back from holiday, is there anything that you don't need to take back? And are there different ways you need to share information which will make things easier in the future?
Covering for others is also a great way of exploring whether or not there is appeal in a post like theirs, and a chance to stretch your skills into new areas which can really help your CV and future job applications. So if you've been covering for someone else, what can you do now that you couldn't do before? Make sure you get that down on your CV.
Apart from relief, what do you need to remember from your experience of cover over the holiday period?'
Love this? Do us a favour and send it to five people. Who thinks like you? You could send it to someone who needs to read it!
