A few months ago I heard a leader recognizing his own leader and say:
"You need a Leader as a Ladder."
It struck me and I tweeted about it* and felt led to write about it too.
“If you have ever have the opportunity to travel to Pohnpei, Rickson would probably be one of the United Customer Service Representatives you would remember,” wrote Oliver’s supervisor, Nary Reyes, in his United 100 nomination. “He has the kind of attitude that makes everyone around him smile and instantly be in a great mood. But he doesn’t limit his greatness to his working hours. Rickson is always kind and looking to help those in need outside of work as well. What he did for this customer is remarkable, and I am beyond proud to be on his team.”
