Wow, inspiring on many levels (how we judge each other, what we sometimes "hide" at work, and the possibility of finding a thoughtful mentor when/where you least expect to, etc.). I am vacillating between wanting to work for Cathi, or marrying her. Maybe both. :-)

Great story about a great boss.
Most times we bitch and moan about the crappy bosses we've had, but the stories of the good ones are few and far between -- like the good bosses themselves it seems.

"Treat a man as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he could be, and he will become what he should be."

What if we took the Emerson quote above and replaced the word "man" with "boss"...?


The Ducati girl. That is hysterical. Wish there were more women like you and Cathi in this world!

Wow! I've never been a blog topic before! I actually learned a lot about myself from reading this. Thank you Jory! You're still an incredible communicator.

I'm writing from Japan. Yesterday I was in Korea and the week before Shanghai and Beijing where the Powerpuff Girls are growing in popularity in the local marketplace! I moved on from a Powerpuff handbag to working for the company that produces Powerpuff Girls (where else can someone with red streaked hair work!).

I really miss being in a start-up where there is an incredible sense of team. We learn so much from each other when we work together in small teams. A good manager is really a coach who relies on her team's skills and capabilities; removes hurdles; and helps everyone do their best. Helping people grow, evolve and follow their dreams is the real measure of success for any manager.

I hope Jory and I will work together again someday!
