During my years in the corporate world I had to opportunity to work for a number of different supervisors. I had expectations that my supervisors would not only be a boss but would also be a mentor and a guide to help me further my career. As I look back at the different people that supervised me I can say that I did have good mentors. However, the most important thing that I can say about my supervisors is that they were consistent. It did not matter if they were easy going or tough or difficult to deal with. They were consistent.
I have learned that consistency is one of the keys to success.
