    This is one of the toughest jobs I've EVER had.

    I truly empathize with other managers that have to deal with issues of respect for both management and employees. It's not easy when one faces the black and/or white circumstances. Finding the shade of gray to help all areas improve and build is a TASK!!!

    Not Easy Be a Manager
