A Token of Appreciation
Yesterday, I made one of my regular visits to my client who is diabetic. It was just one of those ordinary work shifts I did. While I was about to start with the care, I was surprised by the wife's offer of their Greek coffee. Having tasted one before, I accepted her offer. It was the best coffee I have ever tasted in my life.
I came home googling on Greek coffee, and to my delight, I saw the exact tray, the glass of water and the similar nice cup that was offered to me (no Turkish delight though). I thought, this is probably how they prepare and serve their coffee.
Learning about a culture can be found in ways you wouldn't expect. Doing something for someone else, making a difference in someone's lives, can also be seen in different ways. There are still many out there who will appreciate what you do, no matter how small it is. Some people can surprise you with a gift, regardless of how different these people behave, or how different they present themselves to you. Being constantly professional in your attitude and behavior at work has its rewards, even just a cuppa, because people are watching you.
People care, they empathize. This is how effective marketing and advertising has been for years. They will vouch for your product or idea if you show honesty, integrity and professionalism in your business or work.
Have a positive and productive day. See you i my next blog on 'Empathy in Business'.
