What We’re Thinking
By Dr. Francis Eberle
One of my clients recently had difficulty letting go of some unfair comments from her supervisor. The comments were harsh because the supervisor thought the work was shoddy, but the supervisor had gaps in his knowledge and had overlooked the true quality of the work. My client knew she had to get past the comments, but they still hurt. There were two aspects to grapple with—the personal hurt and the professional relationship. My client had to be objective about the comments and build a more respectful professional relationship.

The seniors set the school behavior standards and punishments for all students, managed and maintained the grounds, supported the kitchen and dining room, and facilitated cleaning of the living areas and rooms. It was a unique school.
I learned then, and have seen even more since, that there are good and bad leaders. More importantly, both leadership types have an enormous influence on the culture and interactions of the organizations they lead. At my high school, fierce disciplinarians were mocked behind their backs and avoided as much as possible.Read More
