What’s Behind the Label
We often see the label and stop. We love labels. And we love to slap labels on things and people.
And that is tragic.
There is always a person behind the label. A person who has hopes and dreams, desires, and a measure of talent.
You’ve brought that individual into your organization, and now what? Somebody gets a ‘feeling’ about them and attempts to short-circuit their career. Maybe shelve them before their ripening time has come.
All because of a label. One thing I know – in this disposable society in which we live, we cannot treat men and women as disposable. We need individuals who have a knack for drawing a person out, for finding the fire within and helping those individuals we once labeled as ‘optional’.
There is always a person behind any label. What are we going to do about that?
This is what is on my mind today.
