Penguin had been sitting one evening and looking over a project that was about to be finished. From start to end he had been a big part of things and he could see what an impact it had on things. Being a good, solid leader meant that he was there for his employees no matter what they needed. Any mistake they made in the project he would be there to help them out. When they needed a sounding board, he was there. Penguin could see that he not only helped in the immediate but in the long run.
