Difference is all around us. It’s easy to see others as being different whether it’s their gender, skin colour, size, clothing, nationality or lifestyle. But having worked with and trained people from all over the world it is clear that the challenges of leadership, handling difficult people and motivating your team are universal. So what else might we share….
We get frustrated about things we can’t control
We want to be respected and valued
We want to have a voice and to be heard
We want our life to have some meaning
We love our family unconditionally
We want to provide for, and protect, our family
We want to love and be loved
We want to have a place to call home and we miss it when we are away
We grieve for those we lose
We are all human
…perhaps we are more similar than we think.
