Important career decisions
I remember how much shocked my parents were and how much scared when i said i gonna be a sales man. But, that was the most important decision I had ever made.

Also , I decided to do a sales where we dont find many ( unlike , Insurance , Banking etc ) . Selected Dot Com as the place of mine and started travelling in it.
Handling Grievances
Simple. Sit and Talk to the employee to find out the reality , Validate the words given by him/her , take appropriate action to it but will react as fast as i can.

Caz I feel most of grievances are basically a imaginary feeling of dissatisfaction or bad experiences.
