This article was a pleasure to read especially because I completely understand the points that the author, Jeff Haden, makes. Everybody wants to be the boss and have the non-profit organization that their employees never want to leave and are proud to be a part of. Running Areyvut has been and continues to be an extremely rewarding position which I hope those who have worked for us as board members, interns, and volunteers can claim is just as rewarding for themselves. One of the items on the list that I identify with is “I think it’s great when you’re having fun.” I think it’s good to brainstorm at work and to be creative with one another. Laughter is aloud when the work is getting done and ideas are being brought forth. We should never stifle our creativity because that is not only what keeps us happy but also because it keeps us productive, allowing us to churn out our best ideas for events and programs. This article is an important one that shows that bosses are human too. We are not out to get anyone. We want what’s best for our employees, our volunteers, and those we are reaching out to help.
