Being an Account Executive is a delicate balancing act. I have to represent the client to my coworkers, and I have to represent my coworkers to the client. Sometimes this means I'm at odds with people, but I feel like I really do try to look out for them.
I did a little finagling today that helped out a coworker. This coworker proceeded to come to my desk, repeatedly thank me, and loudly proclaim that I was the best ever. A few minutes later he presented me with an orange popsicle from his "secret stash." Dude, you don't even know what a huge pickup-me-up that was. Small gestures can mean a lot some times. That was the highlight of my day.
