If Not This Season, Then When?

I enjoy this time of year. And, it’s seems many others do, as well. It’s a season of fun-filled gatherings and sharing good wishes. Kindness, warm smiles and generosity are legitimized in all dimensions of life. Giving takes center stage and even goes beyond the material.

Perhaps you and your co-workers are making plans for a luncheon at a local restaurant, a shared meal where people bring their favorite dish, or a festive after-work party. Whatever your plans, be sure the invitation is extended to everyone and the plans reflect respect for all traditions represented in your department.

When mindfully planned, holiday celebrations, whatever form they take, can go a long way to bridge differences and strengthen the sense of inclusion and teamwork. Make the most of the goodwill this season kindles.  Then, carry the good feelings forward into the New Year.
