A Patient Boss - Integrity Moments - July 16

A Patient Boss

My son, Jeremy, works at a sheltered workshop. If you think working with your staff takes patience, imagine managing an entire team of adults with special needs who all have individual quirks and challenges!

We are so blessed that Jeremy has an amazing boss named John! Due to Jeremy’s autism and obsessions he can be moody at times even to the point of an aggressive temper.

John has learned how to read Jeremy’s moods and when to give Jeremy a break or divert his attention. John has learned to understand his team and their individual needs, then patiently lead them to being productive workers.

Ephesians 4:2 says, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”

Patience is a virtue all bosses should strive to achieve.
