If you follow me on Twitter (and you should 🙂 ) you know I spent the better part of last week attending the WorkHuman conference in Phoenix, AZ. I expected it to be good but it shattered my expectations. The event was AMAZING and I am very much looking forward to being able to attend WorkHuman 2018.
I chose to attend sessions that focused on communication, authenticity, gratitude, recognition, diversity and inclusion. I took copious notes and tweeted some key takeaways. (See below; I was kind of a big deal. Lol.)
I learned too much and gained too much inspiration from WorkHuman to contain it all in one blog post. Consider this compilation of some of my favorite quotes as part one of a series.
Have the courage to speak softly. – Susan Cain, Author & Lecturer
We all want the same things in life, to be seen and appreciated for who we are. – Chaz Bono, Actor & Advocate (The title of this post also references a Chaz Bono quote.)
In a culture where people can only bring solutions, you won’t hear about the biggest problems. – Adam Grant, Author & Professor
Have people stay in their lanes if that’s where they show excellence. – John Baldino, President, Humareso
At the end of the day we’re all humans. Treat everyone as individuals and the workplace will benefit. – Dan Schawbel, Workplace Expert
At the end of the day people want to have pride in what they do. – Chinwe Onyeagoro, President, Great Place to Work
More WorkHuman goodness to come!
