Scientists at the Rocket launching station in Thumba were in the habit
of  working for nearly 12 to 18 hours a day. There were about seventy such scientists working on a project. All the scientists were really  frustrated due to the pressure of work and the demands of their boss but everyone  was loyal to him and did not think of quitting the job. 
 
One day, one scientist came to his boss and told him - Sir, I have  promised to my children that I will take them to the exhibition going on in our township. So I want to leave the office at 5 30 pm. His boss replied -  OK. 
You are permitted to leave the office early today. 

The Scientist started working. He continued his work after lunch. As  usual 
he got involved to such an extent that he looked at his watch when he  felt 
he was close to completion. The time was 8.30 PM. Suddenly he remembered 
of the promise he had given to his children. He looked for his boss,, he was not there. Having told him in the morning itself, he closed  everything 
and left for home.  
 
Deep within himself, he was feeling guilty for having disappointed his 
children He reached home. Children were not there. His wife alone was 
sitting in the hall and reading magazines. The situation was explosive; 
any talk would boomerang on him. His wife asked him - Would you like to have 
coffee or shall I straight away serve dinner if you are hungry. The man 
replied - If you would like to have coffee I too would have; but what about 
Children??? 
 
Wife replied- you don't know - Your manager came at 5 15 PM and has taken 
the children to the exhibition. What had really happened was... The boss who granted him permission was observing him working seriously at 5.00  p.m. 

He thought to himself, this person will not leave the work, but if he has 
promised his children they should enjoy the visit to exhibition. So he 
took the lead in taking them to exhibition The boss does not have to do it 
every time. But once it is done, loyalty is established. That is why all the 
scientists at Thumba continued to work under their boss even though the 
stress was tremendous. By the way, can you hazard a guess as to who the 
boss was?????

That's the greatest quality of a Boss.

But how far is this applicable in the current trends of corporates is to be discussed.

Dear ,

This clearly shows us that men become great not by virtue of thier positions but by virtue of thier deeds....which of course become examples to be quoted in future.

Regards

Bhagwan Goswami

It is definetly true that a boss is the who becomes the role model for other employees, with due course of time. A BOSS who can wear the shoes of his subordinates and then tries to find actual problem, he always is respected by his teammates.
