Are you a bit timid about the water being too cold when you go swimming? Do you you dip your toe in first to check the water or do you just hold your breath and jump in?
What about when you spend time with your friends or family? Do you enter those gatherings hesitantly or do you run in ready for handshakes, hugs and laughter?
What about your favorite hobby or past time? Do you casually wait and take your time, or are you so excited that you can’t wait to get started.
In each of these types of encounters, you are probably investing or “bringing your whole self” to make sure you are getting the maximum experience.
Director of Human Resources/Risk Management Shanté Akafia uses this phrase often with her staff and now shares why this investment of bringing our whole self to work is important.
As we continue adapting to our “new normal” and trying to anticipate what’s around the corner, let’s remember we are part of a group of people who actively live our SERVE values. We bring our whole selves to work every day knowing each of us make a difference.
We are in this together. You are not alone. We are Team Plano.
