I know some of you are working senoritas. I know there are times when you deal with criticism, feedback, and the like. I know you run into snappy colleagues and hairy decisions. I know you have annual reviews. What I don't know is how you handle these situations.
How do you juggle professionalism and authenticity? How do you constructively respond to suggestions, criticism and the struggle for making a way for yourself without plowing over someone else? Also, (though I seriously hesitate to admit this) how you respectfully honor the criticism and not let it reflect your character and work ethic as a whole?
All and all, I am really curious, how, as a young, aspiring professional, with strong character, dedicated work ethic, and challenging, professional goals, I am supposed to stand out and "stay in line" at the same time. I am hopeful to get some feedback from you, mostly because I trust your opinions and your experiences. And I am seeking some support around my own.
If you're up to the dialogue, I'd love to hear from you. This is a new territory and a new topic, but I'm willing to go there; willing to open up and shed sunlight on some parts that might be trying to quiver in shame. Are you willing to go there with me? I'd like to start a conversation, so either leave your thoughts in the comments section, and/or your email address, or feel free to email me stephanie DOT tabb AT gmail DOT com
