How do you convey "aggressiveness" in the work place?
I am a production supervisor at a company and I just had my first work review. Everything went very well and I hit all my targets but the only thing that was said is that there is a concern if I am aggressive enough. I asked for more information, mainly which direction it was coming from my employees or my bosses higher up. I was told it was just more of an observation and that I seem to be very even keel where production supervisors should be more "go, go." This isn't the first time I have heard this at a job, but usually my bosses understand that while it may look like I am not getting much done, I always come out having more in the end.
