Quote from Tweety
I recently got a new manager after having the same manager for many years. I've had to make a lot of personal changes in my working style to accommadate the new manager's priorities. I've had to prove myself all over again.
I don't kiss butt, but also never forget the boss is the boss and I'm not.
i keep on reading the above, over and over.
tweety's post really and unexpectedly, affected me.
you know, when it comes to work, i'm not the easiest person to get a long with.
God forbid the person who doesn't aspire to the same set of (high) standards i do.
i was just telling someone here the other day, that i've even used my "high standards" as one of my weak points in an interview.
i have little/no patience for those who don't give 1000% to the pts, and it sometimes breeds resentment from others.
this is where tweety's post hit me.
that rather than come across or behave as self-righteous, it really would
be smoother sailing if one merely tries to accommodate the boss's personal workstyle.
and no, it's not kissing butt.
rather, it's being sensitive to the philosophy that when "boss is happy, everyone is happy".
of course we need to be reasonable and never, ever sacrifice your ethics in order to placate someone else.
i'm just talking about everyone's idiosyncrasies, and if you can tend to those, it makes a huge difference.
tweety, you've given me much to think about.
gawd, i really am
love you, tweety.:icon_hug:
