Wanted: Your biggest, baddest HR nightmare.
I get true joy from coming into an organization, listening to all sides of a dramatic story, assessing the situation, being a calming influence, and then hearing the magical words, “I feel so much better!”
When you’re dealing with a messy, stressful, or generally unpleasant workplace situation, don’t try to avoid it. That’s incredibly risky. Call me. I’ll come in and either support and guide you through the issue, or if you’d rather just make it go away, I can do that too. (Not in a Godfather kind of way.)
