Humanizing The Workplace

In today’s fast-paced work world, we sometimes forget the basics – that our talent are our greatest competitive resource, that staff most want to be communicated with by their direct supervisor, and that small gestures such as a hand-written note yield huge dividends. Every one of us can help foster a culture of positivity and humanity in our workplace, regardless of what our role is!

Picture yourself one year from now, happy and satisfied in your workplace. What would have been the most important elements to get there?

Leveraging Collective Greatness

When we are able to bring our best selves to work everyday, the exponential power of that greatness becomes a huge competitive advantage, not to mention a great place to work! Collective greatness is about seeing and honouring each other’s strengths, finding ways for people to direct their talents, passions and virtues to make meaningful contributions everyday.

If you were to try one thing tomorrow to help harness the greatness of the group you belong to, what might it be?

Being Your Best Self

How well we know our talents, passions and virtues has a significant impact on how well we are able to utilize and honour them. The extent to which we bring them into the workplace everyday has a significant impact on the quality and quantity of our contributions as well as our satisfaction. Good news is, it’s within our control! Reflect, reconnect and learn about when you are at your best, then honour it everyday. Embrace the fact that to do this, you may have to make choices.

From your wisest place, what advice would you give yourself right now about being your best self?

In the last post you suggested writing hand-written notes to everyone. I don’t know what I would say on some cards, they’re such complainers!

My good friend Brenda Zalter-Minden says, “a complaint is a poorly worded request”. It’s so true! Consider the complaint... Read More
