There’s No “Off Switch” on Awesome
"Okay Karen, what did you want to say?”
“I wanted to say that I’m not sure your idea will work!”
The mortgage company I worked for held annual branch manager meetings (whose managers were mostly male, by the way).
The president of the company was making an announcement regarding a marketing strategy that they had been working on.
Most of the other managers agreed with him.
I did not.
What happened next totally astounded me.
The president asked me to meet with him and the marketing staff to re-evaluate the idea and come up with a more workable strategy.
Regardless of what everyone else is saying, be the diva that you are and voice your opinion—even if it’s not the most popular one!
There’s no kill switch on being awesome!
