Have you ever come across a faithful dog waiting in the rain for its owner to return? We feel sorry for the loyal dog, but the message is a great reminder. Over the years we work in teams, committees and projects with many, many people. And as we move around the country or overseas we also live with many other people in different living situations and a variety of communities. If we are wise, we nurture the best of these relationships faithfully. We know as we continue to grow in our careers we need and want a supportive professional network of friends and colleagues that we can call in the good and bad times.
In short, we share a history together and a mutual respect for our diverse talents, skills, expertise and experiences. So when times get tough and the rain is pouring down, we know that each of us has each other’s back and we can wait in the rain for a bit. And at the end of the day, that’s all that counts – as well as our faithful four legged friends.
