Hello all, I'm having a hard time at work with my current manager and was wondering if I could get any advice on what to do. So a few months ago I was given the opportunity to get a full time position at another store for the company I work for that was closer to the college I'm going to. The store I transferred to is in need of help and wasn't as good of a store as my previous one. Without giving out too much information I work for one of the better well known computer repair companies. Anyway, within a few days of working at this new store I noticed there were a lot of issues that needed to be resolved that were hurting the business. I let a week go by and brought such issues up to my manager. She acknowledged these issues and even listened to things that I know if we were to implement would benefit the workplace. However after listening she continues to go about things in a manner that is hurting our workplace. I'm confident that I know what issues are affecting my workplace and what needs to be done in order to fix them however its hard trying to get current leadership to implement changes that would benefit the workplace. Its obvious to me also that the last store I worked at was far more efficient than my last store and that I have just as much and if not more knowledge about the company and how to fix, handle, and go about things than my current manager. As one of the newer guys to the team its hard to get the other workers on board with my ideas on how to better our business and its especially hard to work under a manager who comes to me when they have questions on how to handle certain situations and how to better our workplace and environment. Morale is low and other workers don't seem to care about the business due to management. I now know what issues there are in the workplace and how exactly to fix them, however I'm stuck in a position with a leader who I feel does not know how to lead and doesn't take the position they are in seriously. I've reached out to management multiple times and they all agree that my ideas based off my experience from my last store would better my current one. The problem here is i'm stuck under a leader who doesn't seem to care or have the ability to lead. If anyone at all has some advice it would be much appreciated. 

Thanks!

Two options:

Be Average: watch and learn from her mistakes so that you won't make them when you are at that level.

Be Great: learn how to "sell" your ideas to your boss. Make her a success and she'll be an ally long past this company.

You're not going to like this, but those things in your ears won't help you being taken seriously.  

And use paragraphs!
