What Do you Want In Your Culture?
Putting the pandemic aside, remember a time when you felt absolutely great being with people. Really pause for a moment and recall this positive experience—in the workplace, at a family gathering, or at a local café. What words describe this memorable time? What did you feel? Perhaps you felt joy, excitement, or comfort in being yourself with others. What did others say or not say, do or not do that contributed to you feeling this way? Fond memories may come up of visiting an aunt, an uncle, or a friend who welcomed you with warmth and a hug. Maybe you felt cared for and listened to, enjoying conversation over your most favorite foods that they selected and prepared with you in mind. Bottom line, for whatever reason, you felt good.
