First sight impression....


My third son who is an IT engineer would be working  for a new company tomorrow. I'm happy and proud to see him getting this key managerial job. And I'm sure he would do well.

Some advices I gave him. Son! Please be as humble as possible when you meet all your new fellow colleagues, immaterial of what rank and position they are holding. Smile to them when you talk. Shake their hands firmly with an open heart. See the good side of each of them and offer your sincere compliments. Remember the first sight impression is always the best.

My son with confidence replied... "Dad! I have your genes."

Food for thought - "We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken" - Fydor Dostoevsky quotes.

Hi Robert,
You are right about the first impression. Dont you think that 2nd, 3rd and all that follows are equally, if not more important to secure a permanent and priductive management relationships??

Hi Jojo,

Yes! The 2nd, 3rd and all that follow are equally important but if we failed the first, the rest might be difficult then.
