Man is the First Lady one smart, cool person!

Politics aside for a moment, I was very impressed with how she handled the young girl who handed her father's resume over to Mrs. Obama during the “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day event at the White House. She didn't flinch, look uncomfortable or try to deflect the event. Instead, The First Lady went with it, showed compassion, stayed in the moment and turned what could have been an uncomfortable position into one that demonstrated genuine care and concern toward her constituents.

Company execs take note of this. When holding an event where media is attending, unplanned things may occur and may require you to call an audible of sorts. When this happens, the best course of action may not be to get the agenda back on track. In the eyes of the reporters, this may look awkward and possibly insincere. Consider going with the hand your dealt and making the circumstance work for you. It certainly was the case for Mrs. Obama.
