I shared one of the tweets in my Twitter thread (about an ex-colleague who asked another ex-colleague, whom he did not have a smooth working relationship with, for a LinkedIn recommendation) as my WhatsApp status and one of the chats I got is worth sharing as a blog post.
I used the caption in the picture below. The respondent gave her permission for me to share the chats and wishes to remain anonymous.
Hmmm. This is tough ooo. That’s why people must learn that aside meeting work deliverables, having good relationships is key.
As a manager, I am big on soft skills and relationships. Everything will pass away. It’s only relationships you can take along with you.
I spent my career chasing targets and deliverables. Now, I just want to treat people like human beings and celebrate people’s uniqueness.
I just believe EVERYONE has genius and I want people to believe it, see it and express it.
As a senior team lead, my boss says I am not tough enough. Before I used to feel bad when she said it but now that I know its my calling, I own it with my full chest.
I know my identity and accept my space But then she knows my style is effective and acknowledges it sometimes.
My first boss made me contemplate suicide and almost not marry my husband by speaking hurtful words to me. I don’t want that for anyone at all. All in the name of meeting targets and getting promotion.
