Ugh another thing went wrong!
How flexible are you? Me = not so bendy, but I can adapt and learn to embrace change.
When the appraisal comes in low or the inspection comes back with issues that might seem insurmountable what do you do? Here are a few things I’ve learned along the way to help keep me sane.
That little monkey George sure did get himself in some pickles but with some help from the “Man in the Yellow Hat” it always came out fine in the end.
Who do you have that can support you when you need advice? Is there someone to help go over multiple offers or guide you through tough negotiations?
I find having a team to back me up has been helpful. A manager I can run things by, a marketing department to help me look like the well put together professional I am. An attorney for when things get extra tough. Support to me means more than the tools to make my job easier it’s the people behind them that makes all the difference.
What did you learn? It’s easy to take a hit and curl up in a ball and complain. You learn when you look objectively at an issue and question yourself. Would you handle the situation differently next time? What could you do to be better prepared so you don’t even have an issue to deal with? What skill could you learn, could you have reacted differently?
Go forth friends, be curious, have a great support team and keep learning…
