Once Tiger entered the washroom in a Corporate Office and hid in a dark corner.
Many people frequented the washroom, after four days it couldn’t bear hunger anymore, so it caught a man who had come in, and ate him.
This man happened to be an Assistant General Manager in the organization, but nobody noticed his disappearance.
Since nothing untoward happened, the Tiger became bolder and after two days caught another man and ate him.
This man was the General Manager of the organization.
Still, nobody worried over his disappearance.
Next day, the Tiger caught the Vice President who was a terror in the organization. Again nothing happened.
Then Tiger caught a man who had entered the washroom while balancing a tray of teacups in one hand.
Within 15 minutes a huge hue and cry ensued, and everyone in the office started looking for the man. The search team reached the washroom, flushed out the Tiger and saved the unconscious man. He was the tea boy in the office.
It is not the position, but our usefulness to others that makes us lovable and respectable. If your subordinates are happy in your absence that means you are not a perfect leader.
