Push The Thinking Horizon

It was 12pm. I dialed the number in my mobile. I could really feel how distant Hyderabad is. It was Naveen who attended HCL interview in Hyderabad, a couple of weeks back. Impressed with his performance in interview, I was following up with him whether he joins us. As soon as he lifted his phone, he said, "Hey, Lakshmi", how are you doing?" and suddenly his voice went down. He told me, "Lakshmi, I asked my parents whether I can join HCL, Chennai". They said, "no". He went on to say, "I miss HCL" (so am I :-)). He said another thing that was shocking to me. He said, "you are the best person I met. I want to join HCL simply because you. Now, I cannot join but in future I will join". For sure, I will see this guy becoming terrific.

What did I do to be seen as best person other than interviewing him for more than four hours and thirty minutes of orientation post interview. On the interview day, I was just trying to bring out best out of him. I saw his eyes go bright on seeing his answers and when I try to put his answers into a perspective of problem solving.
The people love you when you make them super star, when you make them to stretch their thinking horizon, when you make them to do something different from their usual mundane work.
