I wrote a guest post for Terrence Seamon’s Site: Here We Are. Now What?
Here are two paragraphs from the post on how we (organizations and individuals) can thrive in this most challenging economy:
First off, we must move more from me to WE. As organizations, if you say people are your greatest resource, do you back that up or do you chop them off as soon as economic challenges begin to loom on the horizon? As individuals, do we fully contribute to our organizations to help them become as viable as we are valuable?
Lighten up. We don’t lighten up by throwing people overboard. We don’t lighten up as individuals by not thinking deeply about our own career. We lighten up by realizing if we can laugh, we can last. Charlie Chaplin said it so very well: Life is a tragedy in close-up and a comedy in long-shot. Don’t take too long to get a long shot. If you laugh, you last.
