For example, one of his workers, Turkey, is an old man whose productivity is low during the day. Rather than firing Turkey, the Lawyer, instead of firing Turkey, tries to make compromises so that that Turkey could be both productive and happy. His care for his workers translates into how he treats Bartleby, one of his new workers. Bartleby is a hard worker, that always does his work efficiently, which was deeply appreciated by the Lawyer.

Okonkwos whole life long conflict is an allusion to the message that an individual is in control of their fate and has the ability to guide the people around them. For example, when Nwoye joined Mr.Brown, in spite of the violence and destruction of confidence he had known growing up, Okonkwo could have prevented this and formed a coerce family if he had contributed to the values of love and care.
