Word to the wise: Beware the work crush

It started out professional enough. Well, somewhat.

It was merely acknowledgment of the charisma, potential and talent of a leader with future potential. Whom she also thought was handsome…in a company that didn’t have a large pool of ‘pleasing to the eye’ male leaders. Every time he spoke she was inspired. I mean, who couldn’t help be inspired by his energy, passion, vision (and that smile…)?!

  • brilliant (?) leadership potential
  • admire his dashing good looks
  • be enamored by his observations of the market conditions
  • be inspired in his presence

…all the while
