I’m in my own city today with the Ministry of Justice employees. I am so grateful to be in my own city working this week. I love to travel, but a week working in my home city is so wonderful.
Giving up a work day to hear a speaker at an event that you are “strongly recommended to attend” by your leader is not everyone’s idea of a great day. I get that. But please focus on the 90%, that you have a company/ department that care enough about you to hire a speaker and buy you lunch.
Have you ever worked for a company where they would have never dreamed of hiring a speaker and buying you lunch? All you have to do is work in a negative work place ONCE to know the value of a company who does try.
