“Before I understood that my work environment might have different rules from those I grew up with, I made a mistake that a senior officer pointed out to me. She saw me exiting a taxi as my client had just finished paying the driver and whispered. "Why didn't you pay?"I don't know why I didn't pay. I guess the guy reminded me of my father, he talked like my father; he even looked like my father. I'm thankful I didn't ask him for my weekly allowance. It certainly didn't occur to me to pay for the taxi; my father always did that.” explains Clark in one of the many critical lessons she shares in Learn, Work, Lead:Things Your Mentor Won’t Tell You.
