Unfortunately, saying thank you seems to be an after thought more and more. So at least once a month, I will take a few minutes to publicly appreciate someone that has had an impact on me.
This round: Henry Dittmer
I first met Henry when I joined Agile For All three years ago. Although I knew many of the Agile For All team members, I didn’t know anything about Henry. However, in no time flat, I learned Henry was someone that I would learn a great deal from, while gaining a friend for life.
Henry is a very caring soul with a wonderful sense of humor. He’s always going above and beyond to check in on how people are doing and very thoughtful when it comes to supporting others. When I thought about this month’s appreciation, my mind kept going back to my recent post. He completely engaged with me to help me succeed. He did it in a way that I would respond (not a big deal, not a big request and made me promise). And then he didn’t make the results about him or this request in the least bit. It took me a year to realize the connection/results and unfortunately, a year to properly thank him for helping me in every way that he can.
So thank you Henry, you are a model of a good leader and friend.
