It was Fred’s idea to put the work aside for one afternoon and to talk about ourselves in order to grow closer to one another.I am definitely not a fan of making people sit down to hear me talk about myself, but I agreed to do the exercise because everyone else was cool with it. Fred started with his story. Then me. And then Bruce, Kitoko and finally Harmonie.
I am not going to say I didn’t feel anything after that- because I did. I felt more human, you see? I felt like I knew who I was interacting with after that. I understood behaviours I couldn’t fathom before.
I feel more comfortable talking to my team, and that helps us to work together better and to become better friends.
