We have been there

It was unexpected interview with one of a senior leader of an international IT consultant company in the UK.

People attend the meeting is supposed to interact with 2 other people to exchange business information. Jam accidentally thought I needed to talk with Din so he introduced me to Din.

Later on, Din started sharing about how did he build his career from being a delivery guy (as my memory). 

Using his sincere voice, he told me: Never forget where did you come from. Knowing that you have been through that situation and treat people with respect. 

Not only in leadership journey, I arguably believe that we all need to treat everyone with respect and support because no matter how far we have gone on our journey, we have been in that situation.
