Inspirational leadership: Caring is contagious








    I find this quote from Richard Branson very inspirational and I cannot resist the urge to comment and share it on my blog.

    It is one of the best comments on employer / employee relationship that I've come across, that cuts across public, private and the not-for-profit / NGO sectors.

    If you treat your staff well, they will treat your customers well. It's as simple as that.

    Your customers could be paying customers / receivers of service (in the private sector), citizens (in the public sector) and beneficiaries (in the NGO / humanitarian world). It doesn't matter who your customers are, but if you want your staff to care about them, you have to care about your staff. If you treat them right and you make them feel appreciated and cared for, they will pass it on to the people that they serve.

    Caring is contagious!

    Haja Fatmata Binta Bah - It's been 10 years since you left us

    10 years ago, this day (7th April), I lost a very special woman in my life.
    10 years later, I still feel the urge to connect with her.
    Words cannot describe the emptiness.
    There’s no substitute for a mother’s unconditional love.
    Neneh, we miss you. May Allah continue to bless you, and may you continue to rest in peace.
