Sometimes work can be...well...funny! I thought I would take a little break from the normal energy I pump out on leadership and laugh a little (at myself) today.
So, I was fired up to be part of the #shrmchro event and to be a #shrm15blogger. I flew to Las Vegas...stood in line in the hot sun behind 450 others at the airport for a cab...and then waited forever in line again to check in to my hotel.
Except I didn't book the hotel properly ahead of time and had no room!
In my previous role I launched a podcast that I absolutely loved hosting. As I prepared for the first show I was a bit nervous. I had all of my questions typed up so I would be ready.
Except I ran through my questions in the first five minutes and had to improvise for the remaining twenty-five minutes!
I now work in a role that has me communicating constantly in multiple time zones. This should not be difficult.
Except I am now the master of the double-booked calendar for no other reason than I apparently can not tell time!
How About You
Have you made any gaffes lately that make you step back and laugh at yourself? Candidly, in the moment these mix ups might not seem very humorous. Looking back now, I think they are a good reminder for me that I'm not that special after all.
I'd love to hear from you.
