Boss of bosses said……

Standard

Our boss of bosses visited East Africa last week. We have been having a great time seeing as we met our extremely stretched financial annual target way back in June.

Some of the quotes he left us with: (In random order)

  • All hands on deck! This is not a cruise ship, it is a battleship.
  • Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
  • Reward is not about cash. It is also about ensuring positive employee motivation and engagement.
  • My scuba diving partner is my wife. I make sure that we make safe dives, I am not going to raise our kids by myself.
  • Don’t leave money on the table.

Then he asked us what our corporate values were. He selected someone to select someone else to answer. The person selected me. I had no clue what our corporate values are. As in really, aren’t those things that are just printed out to impress donors and clients? 🙂

Our corporate values are:

* People

* Passion

* Customer Satisfaction

* Excellence

* Teamwork

Have a corporate-y day, won’t you?
