There's a company in the U.S. that allowed its employees to bring their children to work.
Long story short: teamwork and productivity were at their finest. Ego in the workplace was gone (or at least tempered). Communication was so much better and clearer.
People saw people as "people."
People like them. People with children to feed. People with needs. People with problems. People with dignity.
People with their own stories.
People with their own dreams and struggles.
Suddenly, people treated each other with "respect." Respect for people "like them."
Suddenly, people treated each other with understanding.
Suddenly, people treated each other with care.
Suddenly, people treated each other with love.
How do you treat people at your workplace?
P.S. Last night, I took the train going home. And I saw "people." Suddenly, I didn't just see faces. I saw people. With their own families, problems, dreams, stories, and dignity.
