With my recent change in roles, I was considering what changes I would need to make to my LinkedIn profile.

As a part of my new role is “leading a team of about 20 people.”

But that didn’t seem sufficient.  Something was missing.

Then it dawned on me.

It should read, “leading a team of about 20 awesome people.”

These aren’t just words, it’s how I really feel.  Over the past 3 weeks, I have got to know them and they are a wonderful, diverse, awesome group and it’s a privilege to work with them.

How about you?

Do you manage projects?

Or do you manage exciting projects?

Do you teach a classroom of students?

Or do you teach a classroom of wonderful students?

Adjectives matter.

And not just on a LinkedIn profile.

They matter because how you feel about your work will significantly influence your performance.
