Kick In The PantsThe past year has caused a lot of shakeups for businesses. It’s times like this where we need to make sure we’re focused on the road ahead and have a strong image to lead for those looking to us. On this episode of The AV Profession we are joined by Brad Malone from Navigate to discuss how to work on ourselves and work on our team to stay on the same page.

I was very conflicted listening to this episode. I have been labeled as having a bad attitude while working at a company where the stress level was always high, the deadlines were always unreasonable, you had to fight to keep time off that had been approved months in advance, and there was no break between projects. I was completely burned out and always sleep deprived and stressed.
On the flip side, when I did move to a company where I was treated with respect, I realized I had a poor attitude compared to my coworkers. I started trying to catch myself if I was not meeting their level and trying to regain the optimism I had at the beginning of my career.
I don’t like the word entitled to describe someone who wants to have their basic needs met to do their jobs well, because it doesn’t matter if you company has a great mission, burned out employees are not going to have the best attitude or do the best work. But I have had someone bring down a whole job with a bad attitude and think it needs to be addressed.
Hard topic to address that probably needs more than 12 minutes.
Thank you so much for your comment. We are heading back into the studio with this series currently. I’ll see about devoting more time to this specific subject.
