Whether you are a "boss," or an employee, I hope you had reason to celebrate today.
When I arrived today, I had a card on my keyboard from my team. It was an "Office" card with the saying "Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy, Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me." We love The Office, and I have a magnet set on my filing cabinet. It made me laugh.
On our calendars, the section managers had a meeting with our department manager, with the subject line being an "accountability" meeting, which was very clever. We recently had a Department Clock Reset (a human performance performance measure) dealing with Managers performing field observations. We thought this was real. Turns out our department had arranged a lunch for our department manager and us other managers in group. We had sandwiches, chips and dips, veggies, a shrimp salad, and more desserts than you could shake a stick at. It was a very nice gesture, and is shows how we are coming together as a team. It was very enjoyable.
Hope you had a great Thursday :o)
