The summer vacation season is upon us in the northern hemisphere. Families and friends are off to visit extraordinary places and people they don’t usually see: The Roman Colosseum, the Grand Canyon, extended family in Paris, cousins in Singapore or siblings in New York.
These experiences are extraordinary because we don’t experience them on a daily basis. Given that definition, we can say that many professionals go sight-seeing every day at work.
A sight-seer at work is someone who experiences an event during their day that isn’t normal. Employees at many companies have souvenirs from these seven extra ordinary experiences:
- A systemic approach to developing the work culture
- A diverse workforce that is activated and included
- An environment of candor
- Employees empowered to make decisions
- Essential data shared transparently
- Teams that are aligned from planning through execution
- Collaboration where power flows to ideas instead of people
Your team can visit the extraordinary – or be extraordinary. As with a vacation, the choice in how you spend your time is yours.
Some people live where others vacation. What will your team normalize next?
