Problem lies with DOT secretary

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY
Regarding the article, “State DOT secretary reprimands ferries manager”: While there is no way to condone belligerence between boss and employee, I would remind Secretary Peterson that personal respect is something that must be earned. Respect for the position comes with the job; respect for the person does not. It would be difficult to disrespect Lynn Peterson since she has done nothing to earn respect. Her administration of WSDOT is suspect at best. The creation of a positive work environment begins with her and her alone. It is quite apparent that she has no clue as to how that is done.
I can well understand the frustration of Steve Rodgers, the operations director. The only thing that he needs to cultivate is how to express his frustration respectfully. It is an art.
