The Roughest Can Be the Best
It’s not difficult to enjoy the good times we’ve had in life or in our career. It’s also not difficult to work for our favorite bosses. It’s sometimes effortless and very enjoyable. Things go smoothly. But what about the more difficult situations we face or some of the bosses who weren’t our favorites.
If you think about it, you may discover that the roughest of situations made you better at what you do. You had to be creative, problem-solve, handle difficult situations, and try some new ways to approach what you were dealt in life.
It’s the same way with bosses who were difficult. You probably learned how to work around them and take the high road whenever possible. In other words, to do what was right and fair to all concerned…
…Or maybe you made mental notes of the things you would not do when you became a leader.
Think about how much better you are after having to handle difficult situations and people. It made you the leader that you are. Just remember never to slip into doing the things that were impossible for you at one point in your life.
Be the model leader that you know you can be.
