Trust me after over 40 years in management I can attest to the fact that you simply will not please everyone.
So - who do you try to please?-
Just do what you think is right- try to never intentionally hurt anybody and do your best- every day!
Shake off the haters and the gossip and those that will try to pull you down, no matter what you do and how hard you try they will exist and they will do their best to pull you down- do not allow them.
You will mess up and yes you will hurt people along the way, it is inevitable, especially if you take on a role of responsibility. You will have to make decisions and at times you may be caught up in the moment and you may not either make the right decision or convey it properly but if you have the role of responsibility you have to pull the trigger.
Those times that you do react incorrectly acknowledge it , apologize , learn from it and move on.
You must first stand for something or you will fall for anything.
Stand up for what you think is right but always try to walk a mile in the other person's shoes.
Show compassion - listen and help- I promise it will come back to you- ten fold.
