The project I was working on was not going as well as hoped so it was not a surprise when my boss called me into her office and started to drill me about the project. I did my best to explain what was happening and to keep myself and my team out of trouble but my boss wasn’t hearing it. She asked, “And what was your part in this debacle?”
What I remember next is her telling me I was being let go. And then she literally threw a book at me on my way out the door. The book was called “The Trusted Advisor”.
That experience started my journey of learning more about how I was impacting the people and projects I was leading.
Leo Tolstoy wrote, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing themselves.”
What do you hope for in 2021? What might you need to change about yourself to allow that to happen for you?
