This is so good. This made me remember some of my teachers who have left an everlasting mark in my life and career.

In our current organisation, every year we take in about 50 interns who do project training . AT the end , we hire 5-6 professionals and normally others also get a job soon. Towards the end of this training , they host/organize a party where besides dancing , they do all activities. Our HR Head came to me an hour back asking me to talk to all of them , at the end of the party, which is going to be today evening. Just as I was wondering, what to say, I got this in my mailbox. And this is the perfect experience to share with them all and also my staff who are going to be there.

I still speak to my High School math teacher at least once/month, visit and stay with him and his wife twice/year. My senior year, I spent an least eight classes/week in his room, a room with a large window looking out in the hall and two other walls covered with blackboards (actually they were gold in color). Class in Gary Egli's room might involve a short lecture, but 80% of one's time was spent standing at the board doing problems. Why? In my opinion, it is because that is what most are paid to do in life, solve problems - so you had better get used to doing it. Of course, one would always look for a shortcut, an elegant (and easy) path to the solution which Gary referred to as "Superman stunts" and all too often I would hear him reminding me, "Dennen, there is only one Superman in this room and it ain't you!". In my career, I thought of my job as a "fixer". There were problems and they had to be solved, but in life, you cannot look in the back of the book to see the answer, you have to reason it out as best you can. Gary Egli taught me how to approach and solve problems and it served me well. I own him much.

I used to have a good boss.

Find people's energy underneath by encouraging and empower them with trust.

I do feel growth/improvement during the period under this good boss.

Here is small story hanging on the wall of the Pharo Royal Institute of Art.
Pharo is the capital of Bhutan, a small Buddhist Himalayan kingdom that I visited this May.

Small Story with lots of feelings....
A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind of scared, so he asked his little daughter: "sweetheart, please hold my hand, so that you don't fail into the river.
The little girl said: "no, Dad, YOU hold my hand". "What is the difference?"-Asked the puzzled father.
"There is a big difference", replied the little girl. If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are That I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I can be ssure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go".
In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind... So hold the hand of the person who loves you, rather than expecting them to hold tours
