AlwaysWoW! For a Great Great WoW in Life

Thoughts from me about things that are cool, that are WoW, that blow me away. Observations about businesses and people from a wide variety of life. Daily encounters - and thoughts outside the box, inside the box and without any box. New thinking, and challenging old thinking. Passionate about life, about respect, and about integrity.

Great Experiences

Had a recent great experience during an interview. I like it when people are passionate about what they do. When it shows that they do care what they do, they are involved and greatly engaged, to speak HR language.

I had such an incidence two days ago. I am preparing a newsletter for my little department in the company I am working for and plan to include interviews with people that are simply WoW. And to interview them about their work, but also consider their lifes, what drives them, and to capture some of their attitudes. The guy I interviewed was just great. Cannot mention the name here - but we had lots of laughters. When I asked him, what was the most exciting moment in his current job, he responded the first 6 months - and he is with his company only since 6 months. Everything wows him, from morning to evening, how determined the people that work there are and how much they do to delight customers. And his most frustrating moment? That the day is not long enough and the eyeball power not strong enough - he gets tired. What a guy.

We ate at one of the restaurants in the PanPacific Hotel at the airport. When I and my coworker arrived, our intervieweed hadn't arrived. And the waiter waiting to seat us knew, that no personnel of the interviewee's company had yet arrived. Amazing. Later, I called on one for the order. I wanted to order. While the girl was on her way to do something else, she stopped doing this - internal - work first, to attend to us. It showed me that the restaurant cared for their guests. good job.
