  1. Great question, Nathan.
    Early in my career, one of the supervisors I respected most told me that when there is conflict, there are two sides of every story. He told me to be sure to listen to both sides. Realize they will conflict with each other. And, then know that more often than not, the truth will be somewhere in the middle.

  2. “Never burn your bridges.” I can’t remember who told me that, but I’ve always hung onto it and it’s served me well. For me, one of the keys to giving great advice is to wait until it’s solicited.
