we were expecting news of organizational changes at work, but not expecting the news that was delivered
my boss' position eliminated
Things are constantly changing in our corporate world; I get that. Most change is for the better- this one, not so much.
She is truly one of a kind..A wealth of knowledge. Leads by example. Respected. I could go on and on; but in the midst of all of her responsibilities- she stayed kind, caring, funny and focused on what was truly important (the whole life/work balance issue- she encouraged the right things)
She will be fine since the qualities and experiences that make her a treasure to us, will be invaluable wherever she goes. It won't be the same walking into that building.
I have nothing but respect and appreciation for her; our relationship was more than just professional- she is a friend. She is a blessing. I will miss her. I am sad.
