Community has been on my mind A LOT lately. Fundamentally – #connection is the antithesis of separation.
It also then, is a fundamental piece of the treatment for #addiction, #depression. #Disassociation. #Loneliness.
Graduates of any 12 step will tell you that “loving community” was often the key to their betterment.
Statistics are glaring that employees (and humans- in general) are feeling alone, isolated. Overwhelmed. Especially now.
Separation is – as a species our greatest #fear.
Being separated from the tribe in the animal kingdom means a sure death.
And make no mistake- we are animals. 👹🤓
🙌How can I connect more?
🙌Who is in my corner? AKA who are members of my tribe or how can I cultivate one?
🙌Do I have an #advocate – and AM I an advocate for someone (or various) else?
🙌Do I make any effort to meet people or build rapport with someone I’m curious about at work?
🙌Who can I ask to have a “one to one” with in my work that I feel I could learn & grow from?
🙌 What does community look like to me? Can I join a group, a gym, a church, a club?
What are your thoughts on community & connection? Mentoring & advocacy?🤔
