I am not the easiest employee to manage. I have a psychological disorder that makes me useless some days. I have a history of being openly defiant of authority. I’m very idealistic and have the same appreciation for being politically correct as a wolverine.
But my boss at the SSA, Lyz Liddell, manages it.
I was talking about my job with my parents this weekend and my dad noted that when I had the plague the last few weeks, Lyz told me to stay home. How many people can say they have a boss like that? At every other job I’ve ever had, if I could breath my boss wanted me there. But Lyz would rather her employees stay home and get well (and not infect the whole office). Lyz cares very much about those in her employ. We are treated like people, not assets.
I’ve never had a better boss. I’m very lucky.
