The boss is a colleague too

Posted by: | Posted on: December 30, 2015

An old Igbo adage says ‘when a man completes his growth, he waits for the others’. You will loose your relationship with people if you think or act as if they will perpetually remain small to you. A time comes when people you are mentoring will grow to become your colleagues. You must be wise to recognise this stage in their lives and treat them as such. The only difference would be that you are now the senior colleague. We learned this from Jesus – John 15:15 “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.”

– adapted from ‘The 12 golden rules of keeping a relationship’ by Emeka Ogbuju
