I have a professional Facebook account and when I’m not publicly linking to brilliant stuff like spreadsheet horror stories or progressive metal bands from Bangladesh, I’m usually gushing about the people I work with both in my office in D.C. and at U.S. missions and partner spaces around the world. I’m surrounded by good people who help make the job a joy.
One of the things that has impressed me the most is the fact that we support each other so much through thick and thin, and that it doesn’t take long for new colleagues to get that support.
Normally, I publish stuff like that only to my connections, many of whom are obviously those colleagues I’m praising. But every now and then I get the urge to shout this from the mountains. I’m always grateful that I work where I do.
