For several reasons I assume that I'd be more suited for the job of my boss and my boss is more suited for the job I do. From my perspective it would be best if we'd simply be switched.
Given I can name at least 7 topics where I perform better than him, including examples of the last 6 months. On the other hand, consider that I work in that company for only 6 months and he works in the company for 30 years (which could be the main reason that he's the boss).
I have 10 years of work experience, 5 years in a position comparable to my boss now, so I know what his tasks are and I can roughly compare how good he performs. The next level of management is located in a different country.
Whom (if at all) should I contact in that case, in which order and why?
- other colleagues to check for their happiness with the boss? Should I mention my plans in that case or not?
- the boss himself? Go straight forward or critique him (professionally, of course) step by step?
- the boss of my boss?
- my boss and his boss together?
- all of them in a meeting?
In the latter two cases, note that I'll have to invite for the meeting in advance. Please suggest what caption could be picked for such a meeting invitation.
Some personal attitudes which might be relevant: I don't care about the money. It'd be totally fine if my boss earns more money than me when being my employee. Also, it's ok for me to have older employees. I had that in the company before as well. But I don't know for the opposite.
