My supervisor has seen me as a leader. I feel that I have valuable experience that has helped me to become the leader that I am. I have been able to help out with many different things and assist my supervisor on many tasks.
What advice would you give?
Be confident, be assertive, and be calm. It is too often that I see clients getting upset with staff who come off head strong and their behavior is very inconsistent. I think it's key that you build relationships with clients, but your professional boundary needs to stay consistent. Clients respect you more for this.
