The workplace is constantly evolving, and employees are expected to seamlessly adapt. Although change is inevitable, it is not always welcomed. Changes in the workplace affect more than our work lives. They impact our families, self-care, relationships and much more.
You just left the job interview and you know you are PERFECT for the job. How many times has this happened to you and then you didn’t get it?

They seemed excited when they said they would get back to you soon.
When you started in your management position what was your initial objective? For most of us, we dove into the technical work. We identified the big projects and how we could help keep them on time and within the budget. We focused on the technical challenges and the financial picture.
