"My exceptional management skills came from situations like this.... I know what it means to be homeless at a point, get a job and go to far distance place on foot and empty stomach. I know what it feels like working under wicked heads of department....
"So when I begin to manage, I manage with compassion, love, respect and care. So many people are passing through a lot already, so it will only be fair if u treat ur staff well and with love."

Boss gives worker car after hearing he started trekking from midnight to get to work early
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a boss had gifted his worker who trekked to work a car.
The worker had to trek 20 miles on his first day to resume at his new workplace. His car broke down the night before so he resorted to going on foot.
Before morning, the young man tried to see if his friends could take him but nothing came up as it was such short notice.
The young man never allowed that to discourage him. Instead of staying back, he decided to walk all the way.
