Have you ever had a leader at work call you by someone else’s name and was convinced you were that “someone else” just because the two of you were the same color? Ever had someone at work tell you they have friends that looked like you, but always wanted to know how you could tell you were really clean since you’re always a darker color? Ever had someone at work tell you that you didn’t get a position because, you simply weren’t “like” everyone else? Believe it or not, what’s important to me and those I coach is first, the need to forgive that person, then move forward. Don’t let the situation or the person who hurt you control your feelings and your professional growth. Yeah. Yeah. You knew I’d say that right?
