Without a doubt, my current boss Mary Davie of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service. Mary is well known in Federal government circles for her passion and drive for Gov 2.0 and social media, as well as improving acquisition. I’m currently reading “Linchpin” by Seth Godin and Mary exemplifies a linchpin, driving change and influencing behaviors while always appreciating and valuing people for their contributions. Mary always wears a smile on her face and has a kind word for you. As we all do, I have had a couple of less than stellar bosses throughout my career, but that only allowed me to recognize and appreciate a phenomenal boss like Mary. We are all being asked to do more with less these days and that becomes much easier when you appreciate, respect and truly enjoy working for that boss and the team around you.
