Acknowledging Humanity

Companies often express the sentiment that culture is critical to success.  There is much talk about the war for talent.  We hear that people are the top priority.

If these statements are true, then I wonder why I still encounter, on a fairly frequent basis, the strange experience of passing colleagues in the hall, saying hello while passing, and getting absolutely no response in return.  How did these people “pass the test” for cultural fit?

I find it astounding that a person would disregard a coworker who says hello. Zero response.  No acknowledgement.  I think it’s rude, and shows a complete lace of emotional IQ.

Isn’t this a fair and reasonable expectation that people at least acknowledge humanity?  What do you think?

1st blog post – I’m Wondering…

I wonder. Always.  About everything.

Mind never stops.   I wonder if this is how your brain works as well?  I hear sentences come out of my mouth and there are words included I didn’t realize were in my vocabulary.  Again, I wonder, does this happen to everyone?

I’m curious about blogging.  Who’s writing these things?  What are they writing about?  How many blog posts have been written that no one has ever read? Is there a record for the most consecutive days of blogging?   Does anybody care?   I wonder.

I believe one must put their wonderings and curiosities to the  test.  Find out firsthand.

So that’s why I’m here.   Because I was wondering.  And I want to find out.  Firsthand.  Maybe I’ll get answers to a few of my wonderings.
