For the European Union's top diplomat in the Philippines, a boss is someone who sets the "general line."

Ambassador Franz Jessen says he sets a direction and lets people get their own ideas on how to meet those goals.

"They are intellectually persuaded that this is the way to go so that you have sort of a common mission where people work in the same direction," said Jessen. 

"It's something that you do, not because you have to do it, but because they're convinced that this is the right thing to do," he added.
