Around the world Experience.
Pros: people from all over the world
Cons: lot's of untapped potential
Short & Sweet.
Typical Day: I met a woman from the Kingdom of Mauritania. I had no idea this place existed before, but it does. At work; diversity makes it a day to look forward to majority of the time.
Lessons learnt: The word "Hello" in someone's mother tongue, lights up their world; especially during the first encounter. Not to mention, try their name, if you get it exactly how it's suppose to sound, great. If not, and you sound foolish saying it; do it with a smile and with an unsure look on your face. To that person, it is indeed the most sweetest sound to their ears.
Management: The word "challenge" comes to mind. Management pushes and challenges you. Testing your limits. Sometimes, management are also challenging to deal with. In any case, I'm either growing or growing. In both instances, I have a opportunity to improve myself.
Co-workers: Believe it or not, we are invested in each other's success and we encourage instead of discourage. We pride ourselves in lifting each other up, even if it means taking our relationship beyond working hours.
Hardest part of the Job: Dealing with the Boss, Me. I tend to think big picture most of the time, so the challenge for me while working here was to bring myself back and not get all caught up in our "Potential." My actual boss appreciates visionaries, but sometimes people like us, get carried away too easily.
Fun part: The Retreats of course! It's like a mini-vacation. Everyone get's motivated and we are overly EXCITED. Then we come back and channel that excitement; usually this is a very creative time and I enjoy when everyone works in sync.
