A few months ago at work, a charge was put out: “Let your coworkers know what you’re working on! Share your successes, make it clear to anyone on the team how your work is going.”
Well, our tiny development team already knew all that. It was the other 8, client-facing people who didn’t have a clue about whether I was having a good week or a bad week–about 90% of my job is the kind that doesn’t get noticed if it works correctly.
So I was inspired to share something of a “stripped bolt” story one week (which went over like a lead-balloon, but nothing-ventured-nothing-gained). I always felt that story fit a longer form than a Yammer post, so here we all are.
