Executive Director in Charlottetown:
"My Managers Did not Always Know Best."
I started in a rigid employment environment (UK Civil Service) and was led to believe that each person in a higher grade had more knowledge, expertise and experience than those in a lower grade. This was nonsense and I realized as I progressed that each person in my team was vital to my own success or otherwise. A simple hello to a security guard or janitor would come back later in many ways that were not considered at that moment. The bottom line with this was that when I said hello or asked how someone's day was going I meant it. You cannot truly fake sincerity or caring!
