Stacking the Deck

I was working with someone recently who had overcome a big gap in this employment history to land a great new job. He was rather sheepishly shared his news. “Anita,” he told me, “I feel like a stacked the deck in my favor and that’s why I landed this position.”

My friend felt like he had given himself an unfair advantage when all he had really done was align his interests, strengths, and relationships – and that approach is a very good thing!

Have a great day,
Anita
