I trust you will have a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you celebrate. Thanksgiving and this four day Thanksgiving weekend is a wonderful time to think about everything for which I am grateful: my work, my family, my husband, our companies, our friends, our home, and my ability to write and publish my thoughts on so many topics.
I am also grateful for you, the people who read my site and especially, the readers who send me notes about articles and comment on my blog posts. Whether you agree, disagree, or want to submit an article, tip or quote, I am happy to hear from you.
You've heard my oft repeated refrain about the importance of establishing annual traditions in your companies and organizations just as you have in your home. With this in mind, several of my clients held a Thanksgiving dinner at lunch for all employees last week. It's an annual and annually appreciated tradition.
They time the feast carefully now since one year it coincided with Ramadan and the Muslim employees had to take their food home for dinner after sundown. We learned fast after blowing it, the same as the planning committee quickly learned to provide vegetarian hot dogs and all-beef hot dogs, instead of just pork, during the summer picnic.
For a new perspective on Christmas, and a reminder, too, that Thanksgiving isn't world-wide or even nationally celebrated by all, here's how we can all celebrate our diversity during this holiday season.
My cornucopia overflows with joy. I share what brings me joy...
Please share what brings you joy - at work or in life? And, please talk about what you are thankful for this year in comments. Thank you for another wonderful year.
