She is a mentor and is working with a new employee who is in her first professional job.
She is working on the model of sometimes listening and sometimes sharing. She asked me for my very best advice for a new employee.
1) read Ask A Manager's blog. EVERY DAY. It's a fabulous way to see, hear, and experience what is really going on in the business world.
2) Listen. A lot. Two ears. One mouth.
3) Remember that bad news never gets better with age. Take care of little problems before they become big problems.
Your best advice to a new employee? Would love for you to add your two cents. Cheers to the weekend!
