Women Wisdom Snippets – Part Deux

One of our senior leaders retired after 39 years of federal service. Here are some of her parting reminders:

  • Everyone is a leader, treat them accordingly.
  • Hunger for wisdom, always.
  • Assume good intentions, always.
  • Act with courage, always.
  • Do the right thing, always.
  • Think about your employees when making decisions.
  • Have fun, and remember the words of George Carlin –At the end of my life, my only regret is I wasn’t kinder to people.
