Working relationships that last

Working with others has not always been my strong suit and like many people it has been a learned skill.  The skill is taking all that comes along with being a individual contributor and yet finding a way to improve those contributions with the input of others. There are people that you end up working with simply because they fill a role during a time at a company that you happen to be at. Most work relationships fall into this category.

Then there are those people that through experience you realize that you get tons done when you work together, you enjoy your work more with them, you improve as a person because of them, and ultimately you deliver more results for the company with them. Perhaps you work together for a period of time at the same company, but you know that there will always be a bond.

Grateful for those folks in my life that have given me the stories in my career, and I look forward to every opportunity to create more of them.

“Your stories are essential,” Miranda told a stadium packed with graduating seniors and their guests for the ceremony. “Don’t believe me? In a year when politicians traffic it in anti-immigrant rhetoric, there is also a Broadway musical reminding us that a broke, orphan immigrant from the West Indies built our financial system, a story that reminds us that since the beginning of the great, unfinished symphony that is our American experiment, time and time, immigrants get the job done.”
