    Default Here goes everything...

    I'm in the sitting room of my company chairman's mansion. A bunch of managerial colleagues from work are briefing him on various developments within the company while I try to look important working away on my laptop a couple of feet away.

    I'm waiting for them to be done so I can approach him and ask for a transfer to branch X of the company which happens to be located in a different country.

    I'm just about ready to pass out from a major case of nerves. I HATE my current working environment... extremely toxic.. I cross-trained in branch X for two weeks and LOVED it. One would think they were two completely different companies rather than different branches of the same outfit. I will undoubtedly hand in my resignation if he doesnt ok the transfer.

    The moment of truth. *shit*shit*shit*... please psyche me up...

    Think of how good you'll feel about yourself asking him.
    Or how angry if you wouldn't.

    Envision the outcome you desire as if it already happened, and go for it!

    Yes, do.

    Although, perhaps Ride of the Valkyries is more appropriate, given his user name.

    I was getting more and more psyched as I read first Whatever's and then Mad Hatter's posts and was reading Jaguar's post (which just about sealed the deal in my head) when the ENFJ chairman called on me (seriously, it looked like a royal and his courtiers. Would be funny if it wasn't such srs bisness). He inquired after how I was settling in (I've only been here a couple of months) and after a bit of small talk, I brought up the matter of the transfer. He seemed against it at first but seemed to come round after I explained to him, in detail, how my skillset would be more useful to the company there rather than here. He told me I'd be transferred on one condition; if I helped recruit a competent *insert profession* manager to handle a particular region.

    I have a good friend that is established in that region and profession. I'm going to get in touch with her tomorrow and she'll undoubtedly give me several leads.

    You guys are awesome.

    Tonight, for the first time in weeks, I go to bed with a smile on my face.
