Many people that I meet for the first time ask, “What I do?”
I also think it’s the wrong question to ask but still one that many of us ask.
Have you been at a meeting, a party or a networking event and asked that?
It’s all too easy to fall into the trap of focusing on people as “jobs”.
For ten years I worked in investment banking and there the answer that I was an Auditor, a Structurer, and Investment Manager to some extent fulfilled the option of putting me into a “pigeon hole”. People like to do this, it helps us catagorise information which is a more and more important trait in the modern Information Age.
I’ll set out more of what I do another time, but just consider and think about how much more you and than just your job.
Being able to get to know people deeply and properly and make a real connection is an invaluable skill.
The joy of Facebook is that we all appear connected, and see more of the connected world that was often invisible.
The challenge is to remember, that there are real people behind the “posts”.
