Wifey, the wife of our CEO Stan, sent me a text:
"Gloria, Stan and I agreed that the names of the conference rooms need to be more inspiring-text me some suggestions; Stan wants this to be done on Monday morning, so put this on priority; WE are waiting for your suggestions. Wifey."
Wifey must know that I have no priority list. I am in HR, and handle texts all at once and one by one, in line with my core values of responsiveness and HR business partnership.
I had already prepared a contingency plan for changes like this, which I sent to Wifey, in a timely fashion.
Stan's Conference Room: The Worldly American
HR Conference Room: The Vatican
Sales Conference Room: Ground Zero
R&D Conference Room: English Only SVP
Accounts Payable Room: Greek Treasury
Ms Cynthia Axe's Room: Chambre Defarge Room
Hugh White from Diversity registered his objections to the name of HR conference room.
