It ain't fun all the time

| 1 Comment

For one reason or another quite a few people I met today were pissed off and not too happy. I also got rather disappointed in a certain someone which resulted in me stating a few changes that would be effective immediately, much to her dislike.

As if that was not enough, I was put into a situation where I had to talk to that same person again about something that had occurred, and once again I was disappointed by her response. In fact after hearing the answer and the way it was given, I ended the conversation abruptly and told her there was nothing more to talk about.

I'll be talking to my direct superior tomorrow - I'm going in early - to see what he thinks should be done. I'd hate to see a fine colleague be forced to leave the team, but I don't feel like letting people get away with things they've been warned about before either. I could have just let it all go, but I fear that's not in my nature : if my team members or I make a mistake I'm calling them on it, and would like to be called on it too.

Right now, I wouldn't even know what I'd do if I had the option to decide on the outcome, so I'll be consulting with a superior who will have to make the call. If you think that's an easy way out, think again. I will still need to face myself - and my peers - and be able to look them all in the eye with a clear conscience. Then again, I don't really recall the last time I've let peer pressure alter my own opinion in a significant way.

Honesty goes first. Next there is diplomacy. ;-)
