We Are in the Same Storm, But Not in the Same Boat...
is an article I shared with clients and on LinkedIn recently. It is a POWERFUL reminder that we have DIFFERENT life situations and DIFFERENT risk tolerances, especially right now. It reminds us to
demonstrate that we care by tuning in and thoughtfully listening to employees,
especially as plans are crafted and shared around coming back to the office.
The reminders in this article as been well-received by our clients
and one of them a senior executive of a global organization commented,
Thank you Suzie for sharing the Same Storm, Different Boat article. I
have been talking with folks about
being really sensitive
to others’ needs
at this point and
we are all feeling one way or another.
Your article says it so much more eloquently than I did.
I’ll be sharing it
Here are the closing lines from the article:
we are not in the same boat
. We are going through a time when our perceptions and needs are completely different. Each of us will emerge, in our own way, from this storm.
It is very important to see beyond what is seen at first glance.
Not just looking, actually seeing.
We are all on different ships during this storm experiencing a very different journey.”
