Several Options:

  • There is a 'Send reset password link'-button in Settings / Users / Users.
    Your admin can trigger that button for you. (I would recommend this)
  • Your admin can manually change your password to a temporary one, using the 'More'-dropdown menu in Settings / Users / Users.
  • You could enter the database and check your password. It's not encrpyted there.

If you have access to the database, you can read it with the following SQL query:

select password from res_users where login='admin';

What if the password is encrypted?
