Day 4 – Hindsight is 20/20 – Is there one moment you wish that you could do over?
I’ll make this brief, as I am in current crisis. One of my employees at work has not been responding to email this week. It started with a Happy Birthday email on Tuesday for which I offered to treat a birthday coffee, with no response. OK, well it’s their birthday and even though they didn’t schedule any leave with me, I can look the other way. It’s not like I made some huge announcement that I had no intention of working on MY birthday last week either.
But now, after two more days of emails with no responses, calling only to find full voice mail boxes, I am seriously alarmed. I’ve called HR to file a missing employee report so that they will contact the In Case of Emergency person.
I wish that I could go back to Tuesday, when I never got a response to the birthday email and be the nagging boss that I said I would never be to make sure everything is OK.
