Not What You’d Think; The Overlap Between Family And Work

We know colleagues aren’t family; you can’t fire your family.

Your professional coworkers represent something closer to a sports team.

One you’re constantly recruiting for and analyzing the performance of.

But something both family and professional relationships have in common is thriving when celebrated, leading with the personal care of the other before delivering feedback, communicating reality, and showing your willingness to sacrifice for their benefit.

Let’s not find ourselves being better family to our coworkers than our own family.
