Friday afternoon, my boss told me he was not satisfied with my work. It was painful... Painful because I didn’t see it coming; I wasn’t prepared for it. As far as I was concerned, I was performing rather well, with the simple benchmark that I signed and launched the top 5 of our prospects’ list (including Apple and Amazon) in less than 18 months, in an area new to the business. No play-book to follow and everything to learn. For me, I was achieving, on target and proud of it.
