My report told me that her personal and professional confidence has grown tremendously since I hired her. !!!!

She had potential but was stunted by a bad boss. I knew we could turn it around! Yeah!

Thank you, all. I get that this is a humblebrag post, so thanks for letting me have a moment!

I'm really really happy for her that she's enjoying her job and that we're providing a safe space for her to grow.

As far as my management goes, I was slightly concerned how much coaching she might need, but I was game for it because I saw her potential. I am still a relatively new manager so this was a test for me, too.

Everybody that had worked with her at her other terrible agency knew that she had it in her -- she just needed the right place to thrive. So we hired her. Since, we've been doing a lot of training and goal setting. We've been doing a ton of empowerment training, strengthsfinding, small talk exercises, etc. to help her find her voice and get comfortable with using it.

She didn't believe at first that I really did trust her to make decisions and truly lead her own projects, that she wouldn't have to copy me on everything and that I would just train her and let her fly. She gets it now and is doing great. :)

Anyway, would I need to get my visa stamped again since the date of current i797-A (winter 2024) is different from my previous i797-A/latest visa stamp?
