On the way home, I had no idea whether I’d made a good impression.

I really wanted to work for this man.

His influence in the work environment was obvious.

That first meeting fueled me with excitement.

The few stragglers that arrived after the meeting had started were also made to feel welcome.

That’s when he demonstrated his special brand of management.

I left that meeting with a strong sense of inspiration and motivation.
