Lately, I have been reading about Gandhi. It is amazing how he was a gentle and meek man by all appearances; however, he had the soul of a great warrior. He showed us how to win a fight was not by being the strongest, but by earning the respect of his enemy. This idea can be carried into how we deal with bad bosses or work environments. When we don’t like our current situation, we get to choose how we respond. We can’t walk in the door throwing punches, but we can work to earn their respect without sacrificing who we are.
