Many of you will be familiar with the classic group initiative Helium Stick. It’s one of those deceptively simple tasks that it actually very difficult…
I have come to realise that one of the most powerful attributes that attracts me to others is not their looks, their income, their job or even their beliefs. It is how much they care.
And specifically, within a professional context, when this care is mixed with a laser-precision focus to do work that matters, I am like a moth to a bright light – I am compelled to fall within its orbit.
You may have heard of the saying, “A student does not care how much their teacher knows until they know how much they care.” This is true in most endeavours, I believe.
Doing work that matters is, to borrow a phrase from Seth Godin, the emotional labour of being human. When so much of our world today centres around digital connections, it’s refreshing to work alongside those who still turn up and offer their humanity to make a difference to others.
I have been fortunate in my 30+ year career to work alongside a lot of people who do work that matters. Today, at the risk of overlooking some colleagues, I want to acknowledge the following good people and organisations and urge you to reach out to them if what they are doing interests you.
Doing work that matters is a choice. I celebrate the folks below because they choose to help others get connected, be productive and feel successful.
