Today, one of my senior staff in my shipping company resigned. She reported to me for the past 3.5 years as quality audit executive. However, due to her husband’s job transfer, she have to move back to Lumut. During the farewell, she cried and hug everyone in my Japan Team and even my assistance manager was crying and when my staff turn over to me, they don’t understand why I never cry and not even any tear in my eyes..well, I did, for 3 seconds..being shipping manager for more than 10 years, I seen staff come and go, my close workmate resign and join other companies. To be frank, I never cry, not even during my own resignation on a company which I work for more than 6 years. okok, may be a tear drop or two. So, now my question to myself, am i dead inside? am I iron-man as what my HR manager told me just now?
I am not, I am just a guy who never good in expressing my feeling and let it out. I always keep things inside me…that is just me…a Pisces man.
For Gee, the staff who resign today, I wish you all the best for your future and a happy family life, I am glad you are with us for the past few years, helping us go thru the hard time and good time in Japan Team. Eventhough I never say it in front of all the staff, I truly think you are an excellent staff. All the Best!
