One day a friend of mine showed up for an important interview. When she drove up for the appointment, a man was sweeping the front walkway outside the building. As she approached, they greeted each other and exchanged morning pleasantries. She then excused herself so she would not be late for her scheduled interview. She walked inside and was welcomed by the secretary and was then escorted through double doors to a large, well appointed, very impressive office. She sat in nervous anticipation with butterflies in her stomach awaiting the grand entrance of her interviewer, the president/CEO. A few moments later the solid mahogany doors opened and in walked the President/CEO of the company, the man who had been sweeping outside.
My friend has shared that she did get the interviewed position that day but she gained much more from the years that followed She learned much from the wisdom, guidance, example, and humility of this man. His title had no bearing on his willingness to pitch in wherever needed.
