What would you do if there was no chance of failure?
A friend and former colleague contacted me recently asking if she could use me as a reference for job. She’s changing jobs and confident that she’s among final candidates for a position. Of course, I readily agreed. My friend is smart, talented and a lot of fun – an excellent combination that makes her an asset to any organization.
I made me think about the time when we worked together. Our paths crossed for only two and half years before I moved on to another job. The company we were working for at the time was in the midst of transformational change. The changes could have come at a high cost for all of us and in some ways, they did take their toll (long hours, long commute, beginning of the Great Recession). While we were smack in the middle of so many things; however, it didn’t feel so heavy.
This got me to thinking . . . Why?
