My old team made a video for me as a going-away present. I think their objective was to bring a tear to my eye at my going-away party.
They succeeded spectacularly.
It was the best present ever.
Echoing the sentiments of your staff … “Because of you Chris,” I too have a better world! Robert Frost had a major influence on my adult life, as referenced in the following link:
Hey Dad, I didn’t know you were a Robert Frost fan! Great poem, and great reading.
“I took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
Because of you, they are inspired to make great words like that.
Great hearts make great words.
You touch their hearts.
So proud of you !
You have everything to become an excellent leader. In fact, from what I saw at AIESEC you already are. Looking forward to catching up.
because of you, i like to wear clothes in red. :)
Anh Chris, because of you, I have learnt how servant leadership is and how “Đắc Nhân Tâm” leader is. I love the way you treat and inspire us. We are proud to have you as driver of “The Energy Bus”. Thanks you for all!With loveThai Ha
And because of you, Thai Ha, I have learned the power of “Do. Done. And more!!”
Thank you for inspiring me with your amazing attitude.
Thanks anh so much! How are you, anh? How about your new plan?
Still working on it em. Enjoying a little free time too.
Hi Chris, what an emotional video your staffs had made. I watch it, and almost tears in my eyes, too. I so much admire you. Only great leaders could earn so much respect and gratefulness from their followers, and you have them all. I also feel that all of your staffs had have a great fortune and luck when had been working with you. No doubt, you have helped them archived their dreams. By the way, I am also in process of preparing for launching my small start up in training, and would you mind if some day I come to you for advice? Thanks for setting up this blog and sharing great things. I enjoy reading your blog and have learned a great deal from it. Not just your staffs, you also inspired me. Thanks Chris. All the best.

Sorry for my late reply. Sure, contact me anytime. I learned such an incredible amount about leadership there. Happy to share.
Hi Chris. Thanks for your reply. I will definitely come to you some day to learn from you. Best regards.
Chris – I’ve been following your blog entries (both blogs) for a while but never saw this article until now. What a great gift to be given from those you worked with. What a great legacy to leave behind. Sometimes it’s hard to leave one position, move to the next, and then ask oneself, “what impact on the world did I have at the last place?”. Now you are aware of your impact on others in a very tangible way. Although I get a lot from your blog I have to say that this video is really a huge chunk of your resume…and maybe the most valuable part at that. Thanks for all your posts and keep up the great work!
Thanks Jon. It was a very satisfying experience.
