I have worked a lot of different jobs and had a lot of different bosses. Most of them were pretty bad. Both the bosses and the jobs! I have had a few good of each though.
I always seem to notice though that a lot of the bosses that I have had seem to have trouble letting people know that they are doing a good job. It is almost as if they do not know how to praise. Kind of weird.
Well, I have been at my current job about a month now. Things are going well, but I am still learning a lot as it is a senior level position. I spent the past week working on pretty much one thing and finally finished it Friday afternoon. I told my boss that I had emerged victorious and she high-fived me. It was not the response that I was expecting. It was fun though and something that maybe more managers should do. I can honestly say that I have never had a boss high-five me before.
If I were in sales, I would have expected it – but this is accounting!
