Random hot sports opinion…it’s gonna be a long Cowboy season…
I work in a place that I really like…I like it so much that after 2 full years I have an entire drawer of blue (and some black) shirts that I wear when I am home…last week I wore a different shirt and was asked why I was changing it up…that is how much I love my work place. We support each other, and even when things appear to be making hard for one of us (see last week’s post) there are a lot of my team mates around to pick me up, high five me, and (when needed) kick me in the butt to be better.
My boss always starts with, “We are in a great place.” We are, and I am.
I saw something last week that I haven’t ever seen in 20 years. Quick background…most of the PD that we get relates to our department…sometimes we cross over, but it is rare because of the needed focus that we have.
Well, there was a PD opportunity that was bigger than a department…I briefly mentioned in (kind of a throw away comment) an email…not expecting anything. 2 days later, 4 of my colleagues and I are signed up. We spent the day together learning about the big cogs that make systems work, and we each had some knowledge to support one another on these big topics…it was kind of cool, and reinforced the ‘we’ mentality. Our district will be better because of that.
It continues to grow and evolve, but it sure put me in a reinforced mindset of us, and the greatest team in the best district in the universe.
