HA-HA! to AHA!
“Our workplaces are full of human “doings,” not human “ beings.” So says Mitch Ditkoff, the man who spends his days trying to humanize corporate work environments.
“Most people tamp down their real selves when they go to work. However, if you want to bring your ‘A’ game you have to bring your real self to work each day. That’s the only way the best of your natural creativity will emerge.”
Human beings are thoughtful, inspiring, compassionate and creative, so why don’t we bring this into the workplace?
How are you going to bring your ‘A’ game to work each day?
Why do you think that people feel the need to tone down who they are, rather than bring their authentic self to work?
