The other day K shared with me an article from Bored Panda. After reading it, I told her, ‘Thanks for the Friday Randomness!’ To which she asked me with a smile, ‘How many have I contributed to?’ At least 50% I offered. Of those, 25% have been from good ol’ Bored Panda. Maybe that’s a stretch. Whatever.
This one is for the managers. Or those of you who are thinking of becoming a manager. Or who have been a manager. Basically, it’s for a bunch of you.
All I saw when I first opened it was the guy’s Tweet that ended, ‘I said no.’ I immediately jumped to a conclusion like it sounds nearly everyone else did, too. I expected another story about an awful boss. Those stories are sort of common. It’s the bosses who aren’t awful, who are in fact inspiring, who aren’t as common.
It turns out this guy, Aaron Genest, is one of them. The awesome ones.
I can’t capture it all in these short nuggets so I’ll leave you a link to check out his story. It’s worth the read. I think it’ll make you smile.
Without spoiling it, the last comment sums it up:
That’s a real leader.
