What to Say

You are sitting across from a young, freshly-minted, supervisor who has asked you for one piece of advice.

What would you say?

My quick answer: Ask, study, and observe constantly what works and what does not.

Your quick answer?

Be here all the time. Wherever "here" is. When you are talking with a client, don't think about the next thing or the last thing you did. When you are in the meeting, be in the meeting. When you are working on a task, work on that task, not on the next task. When you are at home, be at home.
If you do this, you'll be amazed be amazed at how well you start to understand things.
I tell employees that if they show up to work, physically and mentally, they will go far.
