I held a breakfast for my crew at work today and it went really well. Being the new kid on the block, and the boss on top of that, my welcome has been less than, well, welcome. With a new boss comes a lot of change and adjustments.
But this morning I saw smiling faces and I heard a chorus of thank yous go around the room. It made the money I spent out of my own pocket, and the effort to show that I recognize and appreciate them, worth it.
