EMOTIONS IN CHECK

Your maid is first in your house to work. This does not give excuse for an employer to maltreat their maid, neither does it suggest that he/she is not entitled to second chances if they miss it. No. This mindset provides a common ground for both employer and employee to interact with each other, based on a deep understanding of each person’s role in the relationship. One advantage professionalism brings is that both parties are confident in the structure, and will be willing to do their best to make sure there is no error on their part.

VALIDATE YOUR ASSUMPTIONS

Assumptions are made, and most assumptions are WRONG. – Albert Einstein.

As much as we listen to and trust our instincts, it is important to be deliberate about the questions we ask. We should also be able to listen to, not just the answers that come from their mouth but the expressions that follow those words. Does it depict falsehood? Is this person confident? Is this person absent minded? Did this person struggle to answer this question? Which one did she show reluctance to answer?

Ms. CIRCUMSTANTIAL

Mrs. Rotimi is a working woman, who’s married with 2 kids. Her maid left suddenly on Friday. She had returned from work hoping to be served her dinner, take a shower and go to bed. But that evening was different. Immediately she opened the door, the welcome she got was the voice of her kids who were starved. They were groaning.

YOU HAVE COMPANY

If I don’t come on time, MY CHOICE

If I take too many offs, MY CHOICE

If I don’t sweep under the bed, MY CHOICE
