Odds are this past week you had the chance to see some fireworks. Man, do we love them – the lights, the colours, the sounds. Unless you’re a nervous dog or a sleep deprived parent of a baby, fireworks are great.
What I think makes them so popular isn’t necessarily just the fireworks themselves, but the fact that they draw so many of us close in one place to see them. Like we used to huddle around fires in bygone days, we come together in the anticipation of the show. We like being part of something bigger than us. We like the feeling of community fireworks bring, even if just for a short time.
We’d do well to remember this in our workplaces too. What are you doing to bring people together? What promise are you offering to light up the sky with?
