“He who knows others is wise, he who knows himself is enlightened” – Lao Tzu
It’s great to acknowledge our team mates and employees.
But it’s also important to have a litmus test for how we are feeling as individuals. And to acknowledge how we might be feeling on any given day, at any given time.
Once we acknowledge how we are feeling, and understand what might be contributing to that, we can share it with others, who in a great culture, will either have our back if we are struggling, or celebrate with us if we are feeling amazing!
When we hosted #CULTURE17 Sydney at Beaumont People’s offices they shared with us their notepads, which ask team members to consider, in typical Beaumont style, if they are feeling bouncy, bossy, boggled, or blah.
At #CULTURE18 Sydney we gave our participants a notepad, to help them restore their work equilibrium, and asked if they had:
- said no
- had fun
- breathed deep
It’s a handy reminder to check in with yourself, and that once you’ve taken care of yourself, you can then take care of others
