Every morning I walk into the tower, this guy says, “Good morning Mr. Bailey.”
He doesn’t work for my bank, and he doesn’t say that to any of the other executives. Meaning, he never calls them by their name, however, I am the only one (under 60) that looks like him, talks like him, walks like him.
For those of U whom GOD has placed into leadership, especially if U are a minority or an exception, it matters! Understand, U you could be making someone feel joyful about themselves every day and their identity, heritage, gender, or height, every time they see U.
