Abiguity, Confidence, and Leadership

Standard

Today our Senior Director sent out some great articles to our team to discuss how to deal with ambiguity in the workplace along with confidence in your leadership decisions.  I thought they were great and I think you will too:

I think these articles are not only great for the workplace, but especially for interns as we deal with not really knowing what we are doing on the regular.  We’ve all heard the phrase “fake it till you make it”, but I do think there is something to be said for asking for help.  As interns we have to realize our main point of being on location is to learn.  Yes, everyone wants to be the star intern, but at the end of the day if you make a decision that you are not fully informed on-then you’re going to look like a fool.

So be wise and try hard to learn as much as you can.  As my supervisor says, “be a sponge”.
