Realizethat although he is in a position that is run predominately by women that it is ok to take a stand as agrown man even when the women want to treat him as a young adult. It may be too late to begin thatat this point, but whenever he transitions, please keep this in mind. Express confidence and security inyour ideas, present effective ideas in writing with outcomes and if there is no base line for theoutcomes or if the outcomes come from another source outside of the particular line of work, makethem practical to whatever position you are in. Be bold and daring to the point that you remainemployed, but implement ideas that take that responsibility to the next level. Find individuals insideand outside to support your ideas, challenge your thinking and dont compare their success to yours oryour to theirs!!!!!!!!! You have it in you to do and be better and more effective, you just cant letpeople keep you defined according to THEIR dictionary. Know your value and never allow anyone tounderestimate who and what you are because sometimes your silence or laughing it off gives thempermission to continue treating you the way they do!- Dexter is a great person all around.
