If taking on a new role or job leaves you frustrated and disappointed, the first step to fixing the problem is to have confidence in yourself, writes Lea McLeod. Then make an honest assessment of the positive and negative aspects of your job, and create a list of your needs.

"By leveraging your talking points this way, you can effectively turn what may sound like complaints into something much more positive for everyone on your team," McLeod writes.
