We all work in small or big organizations under our senior who is our boss. Well, everyone has a different experience of working with a boss. Some are blessed with a boss whom they always love to work with while some simple hate them for all the reasons.
So the one who is not happy with his/her boss they simply change their job and that’s very common.
There are many employees who have got an opportunity to work with a great boss and how their lives changed forever. It's not just the workplace, but the never-ending mentorship, leadership, support and comfort that come with the company.
There’s a lady has shared her incredible experience of being with a great boss. And she is none other than J. R. D. Tata. Jehangir Ratanji Dadabhoy Tata, a legend who is remembered for his unparalleled business acumen, was also a gem of a person filled with compassion and empathy.
The lady was the secretary of this business legend for over 15 years and she revealed how he was more than a boss to her. J.R.D. Tata was filled with kindness, compassion moved her and all the employees working close to him had only good things to say about him. He may be the busiest man, but he was never too busy for the ones who he cared about.
Humans of Bombay shared a letter the lady wrote for the late businessman where she had only good things to say about him.
Take a look at it here:
“I grew up in a middle-class family... we were all motivated to work hard and support our household. I started earning in college itself -- I went to class in the morning and gave tuitions in the evening. Once I graduated, I joined Tata Steel in a temporary position in 1961, but within 6 months I was made permanent. Sometime later I was married, but that didn’t change anything...in fact, I decided to do more!...”
This letter proves that you don’t always need to great things for your employees to make them happy. Sometimes small things matter the most.
