It is amazing the amount of impact we each have on one another; especially, when you are with a group of individuals day in and day out. Often, we see our coworkers more than our spouses or our children. I am sure that we have all experienced the contagious attitudes whether it be positive or negative. Today, I want to focus on the positive.
On April 9, 2011, I ran in my first 5k- Race for the Cure here in Roanoke, VA. I, with a great friend and my little brother, joined hundreds of others in the fight to end breast cancer. People raced both as individuals and as teams. Among the teams was Dr. Hughes’ Dental Group. The team, donned in blue Hughes Dental shirts and crazy pink accessories, made quite the impact. What struck me this weekend was how much they enjoy one another. Each of these employees took time away from their Saturday morning cartoons, errands, or whatever else they have to do on Saturdays to spend time together. They ran together, they walked together, they danced together. They encouraged one another to cross that finish line. They worked together to make a positive impact in the life of someone else.
You have uncapped potential within not only yourself, but within your staff/coworkers. Absolutely, one person can make a difference. But how much more could you achieve together? And wouldn’t it be much more enjoyable to do together? You have the opportunity to make a great impression on the community and in the lives of others. I encourage you all to find a cause. Do something together outside of work that will foster goodwill both inside and outside of the office.
