A tryst with the face of aggression!

How would you feel when you are driving inside your office campus and three people follow you and make you stop and say "This road has been cleaned and you cant drive here!"

Strange na? This is what happened to me this morning. What my instinct told me in reaction to this was : "What are roads for if you cant drive on them?" But I obviously did not make that statement. For the simple reason, I Know why they did that. They were doing their job, the task that was assigned to them!

There is a man, who is a perfectionist. He was visiting my campus today. Which was why, such a pandemonium was happening. Yes, I am talking about none other than the Member of the Board who heads HR in my company.

This was the first time I was getting to meet him face to face. More than anything else, I was overwhelmed with curiosity to know what this man was like! I hear so much about him everyday! Yes, that tryst happened in the form of a meeting with the entire HRD in my location over High Tea.

This guy was incredible. After an hour of talk with him, I understood as to why the entire organization would pee their pants the moment his name it mentioned.

He is aggressive. He is Smart. He is Sharp. He is well-read. He is very very well informed. Number crunching was forte. He can prove you wrong even if you are right.

One thing which caught my attention while he spoke: "I am always clear. Never confused. I may be wrong in my view point but I am not confused. If there is an idea which is so strong that will sell, it will sell!"

In conclusion, he quoted Victor Hugo "All the forces in the world are not so powerful as an idea whose time has come!"

Very true!

Over All: I admire him!

if i were to say something on tose lines, it'd be: "I am NEVER clear. ALWAYS confused. I may be RIGHT in my view point but I am STILL confused. If there is an idea which is so strong that will sell ON ITS OWN, I WILL SCREW IT UP!"

;) so that's the diff between the man and me!
