Recently, I asked one of my employees when she was born. I nearly had a heart attack. She was born the year I graduated high school. Yikes… I’m only 40 but that makes me feel really old. How can she be so young? And most importantly, can she really handle the pressure at a public relations agency? Is she actually going to work hard? Will she feel entitled?
We’ve all made our New Year’s resolutions. By now, many of you have broken them. It’s okay. My “no drinking wine during the week” resolution was foiled 5 days in. But, that’s okay, we move on and focus on other things.
Treat people how you want to be treated. That was engrained in my head at a very young age, and I now say it to my children everyday. It baffles me how many people don’t follow that in their personal and professional lives.
Most of us can say that we’ve had a “not so nice” boss at one point in our lives. But, it’s these bosses that help us realize when we’ve got something good. The best bosses are the ones who have the biggest impact on our careers, and inspire us to grow and be successful.
