Be mindful of others...


Whether you’re on a team, in a job, on a project, or out with friends, your best efforts are what you do for others. Especially managers: it’s all about supervising, instructing, coaching, mentoring and leading their employees to be as effective as they can be – in those roles, it’s all about them. Think about all the things that others have done for you, or the times you’ve needed something, and others came through for you.  Those kinds of things didn’t have to be big, or flashy, or spotlighted – it’s often the simple and anonymous acts of kindness and support that mean the most and are so greatly appreciated. So many of us have been homebound with family for most of these past 12 months and, while that hasn’t always been easy, it’s taught us to think less about ourselves and more about others. This is true in good times and even more important in times of uncertainly or stress. This past year has taught that we are all in this together… thus the need to look out for one another. Take a moment to think about what you can do for others today.
