Quotes From This Episode

  • “Situation setting is your ability to be very observant and read your boss quickly.”

  • “Bosses have a couple of stylistic imperatives which they may not articulate to you.”
  • “So in the first 30 to 90 days, your new boss has already assessed you - 'are you meeting my style?'"
