He praised the director for leading from the front and demonstrating what leadership really is.
"This is what leadership looks like. In my morning rounds today I caught my EVS Director leading from the front. Such a great example to me, his staff, and everyone who silently watched him. He didn’t know I was taking the photo. Was embarrassed when he saw that I was. He’s a humble, hard worker."
LinkedIn users share their thoughts on the director's act
Kenneth Adams said:
"Being a leader means that your capable and willing to do the job of those you lead. Leaders don't create followers, they create other leaders."

David Walker stated:
"I’ve never worked at a place where my “leadership” people got their hands dirty with me. I guess they are sitting in their offices, reaching their endgame.
"I feel if more people like this would get out and work alongside their employees it would positively affect morale. In the least sense they would see first hand what their employees are dealing with."
Gaurav Rai wrote:
"He is not an example ....he is the landmark...need to understand everyone job and responsibilities great leader respect the work...not only work only they know .....vision should be clear."
Raymond Eble thought:
"Great picture of a true servant leader in action. Truth is most facilities managers perform these duties on a daily basis. They also go about their business without any fanfare or recognition. It's nice to see you taking the time to recognize this dedicated EVS leader. Thanks for sharing !"
