I am now a Boss.
This is, in many ways, the direct opposite of my usual way of operation. I'm accustomed to asking people to do things, or suggesting in a way that makes people think it is their idea. So the concept of TELLING people outright what to do is pretty foreign to me.
I am also notoriously nice. This has been one of my downfalls for many years-not being so good at being a badass and letting people get away with murder around me. Many of my essential duties as a boss are being wrapped in fluffy nice. Which, maybe isn't so good for my business.
This is my first week at being a boss, and I know I have a lot to learn. Like how to give directions rather than make suggestions (or ASKING Employee what he wants to do). I also have to work on addressing concerns and giving praise.
It is definitely an adventure. Tune in soon for reports from the field....
