To be completely honest I am not one that likes change, deals with change well or have I ever welcomed any kind of change with open arms. I like things the way they are, my moto is “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” To me these are words to live by. Some people call me boring, I say I just know what I like and see no need for changing anything. However, that person is no longer me that all changed about 5 years ago, and I am glad it did. It was a rather hard change, but one I needed to make. I never saw myself or would consider me as a confrontational person, a mean person or a bully. I just assumed I knew what I wanted, and was stern with what I wanted and knew how to get it. Some would call this stubborn, I called it determined. The day I realized I needed to change the way I deal with other people, was actually life changing for me.
I was at work one day, I was completely stressed out and upset over some issues I was having with some of my employees. I was constantly on the phone with at least one of them, arguing over their hours not filled out correctly on timesheets, not turning in receipts on time or at all, ordering materials and tools that were not approved, and the list goes on. I was at my wits end; I was stressed out and tired of dealing with people that just didn’t seem to care. As it seemed that no matter what I said or did nothing was changing, and they were always refusing to do what I wanted or needed them to do in order for to completely my job tasks.
