Rekha is a remarkable individual. Integrity, generosity and openness to new things and even open to challenging feedback is remarkable. This is important in a virtual consultant. Over time I came to trust Rekha so much that I allowed her access to accounts which were very private and, in some cases, I gave her access to financial information and allowed her to manage my fiscal affairs for me as the need arose.
As a manager I put Rekha to the test many times. I was faced with family illnesses. Private matters. I was frequently late for meetings, or simply did not communicate sometimes for days...ALWAYS she expressed her concern for my well being and that of my family. She never complained. over the course of of our work together (I think -- almost 2 years) she has become a friend as well as my consultant.
If there is a flaw in her work it is that she will occasionally not re-check her work. So we might have a repeat issue or change (website) requiring more time on my part. For the most part...Rekha planned ahead. I will continue to hire her in the future. I am ending the contract for now for personal reasons.
Her generosity and kindness were obvious to me and to others in my group. And I found her compassion for others and willingness to receive feedback remarkable. These are rare and valued qualities anywhere. And certainly in the workplace.
