Difficult Employers

  • The person I detested most as my boss taught me more than all the others put together that I liked.
  • It was the only time I was unhappy in a broadcasting job – and if you’re wondering, I tolerated this person for several difficult years.
  • I look back on that period now as a sort of boot camp – I survived, made the grade, improved beyond all expectations and left far more qualified than I arrived – I have been honing the skills I learned since.
  • Just as no one wants to spend a career in boot camp, it reminds me that sometimes we’re in uncomfortable situations that can be unpleasant, but in the end not without eventual benefit.
