"My first day at a NEW JOB, first meeting at 8:30am.
I arrive on time and get introduced to the team. The meeting starts. Then, my mobile phone rings.
“Mrs. Lauren, you daughter fell and hit her eyebrow, we are taking her to the hospital”.
Pale, I ask a couple of questions, and hang up.
I have been working just an hour, my new boss does not know me, and my daughter is on the way to the hospital.
I explain this to my new boss, and he says “Please go to see her now. The work will wait for you. We start again tomorrow or the day after. Call me please if you need more days and how your daughter is doing.”
My boss has earned my absolute loyalty, admiration and respect.
Bosses that put employees first get the best results."
