Remeber good deeds
Over the course of the years I have been blessed with many thanks of the good work I have done for others and of course gifted with useful constructive feedback but that’s for another moment.
Some of the most memorable I have is this:
I can honestly divide my time at the company into the pre-Pablo era and the peri-Pablo era. His organisational skills, energy and determination have brought about phenomenal improvements in terms of how the development team operates. Thanks to him productivity has increased dramatically, and the team is immeasurably happier and more cohesive.
He is invaluable as a leader and mentor, and someone who can be relied upon to support his colleagues in all situations. And his enthusiasm and good humour make him the cornerstone of our small department.
It was a great experience and I didn’t realise until I was leaving that company. Sometimes good work goes unnoticed, particularly for oneself when one’s afraid of asking for feedback for lack of energy and time to focus on the improvement side.
Feedback of good deeds helps remind me where to aim, it is not for resting on laurels however tempting.
