A Woman Who Taught Me Leadership
She is a person who has a lot of struggles in her life. She wanted to go to college while she was working at a shoe factory, but her parents didn’t let her go although she argued she would pay herself. She became a widow when she was twenty-eight years old with two children. She worked as a waitress and a cleaning woman to raise them in a semi-base apartment. However, she never lost her strong desire that she would become a successful person in the business world. Years later, she created her own company that has dozens of employees and clients.
Whenever I visit her office, all employees always treated me nicely with a lot of love from their hearts. It’s not because they work for her. It is because they love her. She tries to offer many opportunities for their children’s education. And, she regularly supports some children who are not in good positions to pay for schools. I’m always proud of her good deed. It also made me have a dream that I would help other people as well in the future. She taught helping someone doesn’t require compensation.
One of the things I admire the most of her leadership skills was she always took all the burden of her job and house without letting people know. As a leader, she doesn’t show her emotions much. She doesn’t look angry although anger simmers inside her. She is even temperate when she is happy. She taught me that the leader shouldn’t express emotions because they lose people’ trust. So, she is the leader I admire the most. I’m proud to be her son.
