When Yasin got there, the head of the department (HOD) was on leave and the office was almost deserted as a major survey was being carried out by the staff which required them all to go outstation.

All the doors led to other offices or cupboards, so in end, I had no choice. I slept on the floor!””Oh! I forgot that you didn’t go to the orientation program yet” said the HOD.

After a few months working in JJ Grocer, Yasin had received notification from HOD that he was to attend a training program. Yasin was excited. However, to his surprise, the training room was not ready for a training session. There was rubbish strewn around and tables and chairs were stacked against one wall. The trainer from headquarters came late and without introducing himself he just wrote down on the whiteboard “Training for Today: How to Improve Your Marketing and Sales”. Yasin thought to himself that the trainer did not look or sound very impressive. He was wearing a shirt with curry stains on the front, baggy trousers, and sandals. The trainer talked non-stop for three hours, Yasin and other participants were all tired and keen to have a break. However, with a harsh voice, the trainer requested them to write down key points to close a sale immediately. Yasin thought that some practice sessions might be useful, so he asked the trainer, “are we going to write these points?” The answer given was, “why should we do another activity? I have told you to make close a sale and just write it”.
