After watching mum and three month old snow leopard twins girls, over a period of two hours at Twycross Zoo, last night, and reading a local business’s call for a new apprentice, this morning, it occurred to us that great mums are like great employers.
The requisite ingredients of mothering and employing, in pursuit of the best possible enlightened self interested result:
care and compassion
caring to teach and loving to listen
guiding and shaping
watching alertly (even when, seemingly, at rest)
showing not telling
Clearly, the above list is not exhaustive, but, perhaps, it isn’t a bad start.
