WHERE THE ATTITUDES MATTERED A LOT....

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
In the Morning hrs....

“The Meeting started at 0900 sharp…. The Clock shows 0915....  And you are here now!” said the GM looking at his 3 Senior Managers….

“I was busy on the other important work which took just 10 minutes more and I have to do that too…. Anyhow, this is my Routine Meeting......” said the first one looking up at the GM in his own style….

“Sir! I started in time…. On the way, our DGM wanted something and I had to answer…. I'm sorry for the delay!” said the next one timidly looking down all along….

“Oh!  Am I late? Thought am on time….  May be few minutes.... Yeah!  I see every one already here…. No problem, I'll pick up…. Good Morning to you all…. " saying thus, the third Manager quickly occupied his seat throwing a broad smile around….


After Lunch hr....

"Sir!  We have a problem......" the Assistants of the 3 men were saying in the individual Chambers....


"I am not sitting here to solve every problem of yours.... You have to do it yourself.... I've my own works..... Please don't disturb me right now" shouted the first Manager....


"OK.... Leave it with me.... Any way, I only have to do everything.... I don't understand what for I've Assistants in my Office....." murmured the second one....


"What's the issue dear?  Brief me a bit.... I'll tell you the way out.... No problem!" welcomed the third man with a smile....   


In the evening hrs at their Residences....


"Sir!  We have a Program....."

"I'm too tired.... At work, my Bosses are eating me out..... Can you just leave me for the present........ I've no time to attend all these Programs" refused the first man flatly....


"I'll try to squeeze in......What else to do? Take my name....... I don't know how to handle all these issues at a time.... I'm just gone!" said the second one almost half dead....


"Oh!  Very interesting to know.... We'll be there positively..... My family needs an off from the Weekly Routine.... Thanks for the invitation.... How much are the tickets?" welcomed the third man....


A few years rolled by….

The first man became unpopular every where, lost once his timely promotion because of his temper and equally a few people above, many below and in the neighborhood.....

The second one obliged everywhere but with a murmur, was never liked by Higher-ups, equally overpowered by Subordinates and shun in the neighborhood too...


The third alone was in limelight in many areas at the back of the right growth in his Profession, with Bosses ever liking him, the Subordinates ever respecting him and the neighborhood forever feeling a true friend and a well-wisher around them!

  1. Thats a nice one Sridhar, It is a very sensible thing to do - to let go of small things as small things. Most times I do agree that it is about the ego of a person and no one likes to be put down. But 3 seems to have done it quite efficiently.. No one puts us down till we let them and we can always let go and be the bigger person :)

    1. I agree with you Vinay that at any time, we should just manage according to the situation and all methods are acceptable here…. But, it’s a fact in my Service that the obedient and the rebelling people had their own problems with Bosses unless they were powerful the other way…. Those, who just had put up without yielding beyond survived well thru’ the situations and these were mostly normal people without much back up of something extra…. Based on that alone, I wrote this Post….

    1. You are very much right Rajeev as equal number of times that happens....But they would be equally powerful too indirectly.... That strength many times supports them there!

  4. Thanks Sreedhar for a nice post. I have seen the 1st kind of people growing up the corporate ladder fast but never earned respect of the colleagues. 3rd kind of people are liked by the coworkers but not by the boss :)

    1. True Arun.... What you said is right and it happens too often around us.... I just conveyed thru' this Post the Message that stands in the world.... 'Refrain from opposing the Powerful; be friendly with Equals, be extra helpful towards the Less-better-offs but equally never bow down beyond!' which attitude forever does only the ultimate good to us!

  7. Hmm...the way 3rd man is portrayed obviously gives a good picture as he seems to be very positive in all his dealings. Probably this is also the reason he is more liked by people around. Though I have noticed people who follow their bosses as if they are their PAs, they do have their differences but never really convey them effectively. While it is good to avoid altercations but if you can convey your concerns positively (& with a SMILE - very imp) makes a hell lot of difference. The 3rd character here seems like falling in this category.

    1. Yes! Rightly said.... It's equally a basic survival attitude at the back of having a certain peace in our life...Thanks for the point brought out!

  8. Pleasure to read. Many hope to be like 3rd one, but it requires a lot of learning and many other important skills.
