Main Street Manager Job Description
The successful Main Street Project Manager must:
Be as agile as a monkey because he or she spends so much time out on a limb;
Have a big chin, so he can lead with it;
Have a thick skin to ward off the stings of insult and ingratitude;
Have strong legs so she can stand on her own two feet all day long and still be limber enough to kneel at bedtime;
Have a deaf ear for flattery, a good ear for criticism and judgment to distinguish between the two;
Have a big mouth, so she won’t choke when she puts her foot in it, and a big appetite for swallowing her pride and eating her own words;
Have most of all, a rubber neck in order to:
Turn the other cheek,
Look back at history,
Forward to the future,
Confront the issues, and
Face the music….simultaneously!
He or she will:
Work under more pressure than a deep sea diver;
Get more criticism than a poor man with an ambitious mother-in-law;
Suffer more temptation than a shoplifter in a mint;
Be expected to be everywhere at once like the chaperone at a high school prom.
Moreover, this individual must be able to be gracious at the end of the year when congratulated for a job well done.
