In turbulent times like these, it is the unexpected little gems of kindness and recognition that light up my days.
One of my first BIM recruits here – a front-line solder – thrown into a battle with little more than her wits to fight with, has just left the company and sent through a nice ‘thank you note’ before departing.
It is quite personal, so I will not share it with you, but there is something in it, that is definitely of possible wider value – and all BIM- sufferers out there, should take note:
….she says… “being involved with BIM kinda thickens my skin a lot”…
A pretty creature she is, no need for this special ‘beauty treatment’ –
I still do hope, that her 15 months in the deepest of trenches of BIM-ridiculicity will leave her with more than just bitter taste.
Now that she has exited the company, I can also make public my opinion that her and the two comradesses left behind could have prevented that project running off the tracks, single-handedly.
Had they been given the chance and support.
And in support, I let them down.
I sort of pulled back after they voicelessly signalled to me that my sponsorship was hurting them – life was too difficult already, could I please ‘help them’ a bit less.
So, good luck Joan, forgive me for sending you into that particular boot camp,enjoy your future with BIM, ….
