Trevor was fascinated with how employees in the organization he worked for described a winner. Sharon Osborne once said on the Oprah Winfrey show that she preferred to be a beautiful face alighting from an old car rather than a wrinkled woman in a posh one. He smiled as he recalled watching that segment and unfortunately, felt that most people he spoke to felt the same.
Since Trevor was about to embark on a Culture Change initiative in his organization, he felt as HR Director that he would like to see his colleagues widen their scope of what made a winner. His wish was that everyone expanded their life to include other aspects beyond work and have a deeper dive into their identity.
John had worked for one organization all his life. Relationships with colleagues went back a long way. He moved up the corporate ladder progressively but it was tough going.
He had come from a family where his father was not exactly endearing to his mother. Siblings didn’t get along well either. Conflict resolution was difficult as most of the time insults, blame and reasons why something didn’t happen the way it should have, were flung at each other. For John this was norm. He didn’t think anything of it.
Trevor had a big task ahead of him. The Board had approved his Human Resource proposal to implement a Culture Change project in the coming year. Even the mere thought of what it would entail gave Trevor the notion that it would be a full-on year.
It was December and at year end he knew as HR Director of the company that his people had worked hard. He could not stress more the power of re-charging energy at year end. To throw caution to the wind and change gears in their life.
Sara started to feel uplifted. It was coming to the end of a year when the world stopped for a pandemic. Living life in normalcy had been a luxury. Those who had life turned upside down were in strife at the new landscape they were facing. Many worked from home.
Sara knew that a New Year was an important time. It gave a fresh start to everything from goals set to achieving them at year end. Her winning mindset would have her do anything and everything to make things happen. She was an adventurer at heart who took on challenges in life as they appeared.
