Today, many well-off people have assistants at their homes: housekeepers, nannies, personal drivers, security guards, etc.

         Relationships that develop between employers and employees can be different.

         Some newly-made rich people think of themselves as feudal lords (bais) and treat their employees as serfs: arrogantly, disparagingly, as third-rate people.

         Other people, however, treat their assistants almost like family members: with respect, kindness and warmth.

         The same two models of behavior are demonstrated by each of us in everyday life in relation to sellers, waiters, security guards, etc., as well as subordinates at work.

         Based on this, I can state boldly: show me how you talk to the service staff or to your subordinates at work, and I will tell you who you are.

         No wonder they say: “The greatness of a person’s soul is determined by his attitude towards little people.”
