U is for Ubiquitous Lessons

Life has its own unique way of teaching us lessons. Everywhere I see I see lessons in form of people, accidents, songs, books or simply experiences. I have been working since past 8 years and my bosses have taught me some very important lessons . Sharing them with you here:

  • Never be little any one’s feelings.
  • Never let the ladder of your success be built on someone else’s hard work
  • Never make personal comments
  • Never forget that someday you were there. Put yourself in their shoes and then TALK.
  • Remember we all are different like the five fingers on our hand. But together we make a fist which can create wonders.
  • Appreciate anyone’s hard work whole heartedly.
  • Criticize but not derogatorily.
  • While doing fault finding always provide alternatives which is beyond adding a “.”, “,”, “and” etc.
  • You could be the brain behind the idea but they are the hands which will work in giving shape to it.
  • Never let them down. They look upto you as their leader.

By stating them here I am no way stating that my bosses complied with all of these. Rather their non-compliance taught me this!

  7. Very nice lessons, and they have implications not only in the corporate sphere but in real life as well. I would say, the most important is the first one: to regard other people's feelings with consideration.
