A real estate management company hit a snag after hiring a woman to start a new consulting venture for them. She spent more than $12,000 for a leather couch, drapes and other office furnishings. She came to work in a limo and swept into her office without saying “Hello” to anyone.

After a year, she had yet to sign a single client, so the company fired her.

She abused power and got what she deserved, right?

Not necessarily. Here’s another side to her story: Her “queen bee” style caused other executives to resent her and spread rumors about her. They blocked her ideas and might have brought her down.

The lesson: Strive to see your actions through the eyes of the other people in your organization.
