I came back to work today after a wonderful birthday weekend to find a pack of hyenas waiting for me. This is a pack that only knows how to deal with issues through blame and attacks. While watching them circle me with their profanity laced tirades I thought to myself, how many can I take down before they knock me out. Then it hit me that the operative word was down. I promised myself many years ago that I would never compromise my belief of only speaking with good intentions to others. I stood tall and actively listened to them with good intentions. I tried to answer them respectfully. It felt good watching them walk away licking their chops knowing that I had held true to my being. I know that it is hard at times, but it always feels so much better when I take the high road. After all, isn’t it really their issue? How do you handle these type of mob style attacks?
