• I agree wholeheartedly with this leadership philosophy. If economics is not about people, it is about nothing.

      Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. People often become seen and treated as objects – as a means to an end. It’s palpable when we work within organizations that treat us as despensible. Language gets used such as collateral damage to refer to human lives. When we become aware we are just pawns in a larger chess game, we no longer trust our organization or its leaders. When there is no mutual trust, there is no foundation from which to grow, thrive, and develop as an organization.

    This article is great – I know from personal experience that my career was slowly killing me – I ended up in the ER several times. Now I am out of that field and thank God every day for the health that I have. Have some permanent issues but I am learning to also remove toxic people from my life. The ‘people pleasers’ like me get used and taken for granted. No more! I’m number one!

    • Dear Susan,
      Glad you are setting healthy boundaries (like the bamboo 🙂 ) You point out something so important and relevant–the people we surround ourselves with have a profound impact on us. I just read an article about this from Fast Company Perhaps this will also shed some light. I am so glad you enjoyed my post and stopped by to comment.
