How Can Dory Help Employee Dynamics?

Don't Be Afraid to

I am so excited on June 17th Finding Dory is coming out. Finding Nemo is one of my favorite Disney® movies and now there will be one with Dory as the lead. This is going to be awesome!

Well maybe you are not as excited but when I think of Dory I think of me.  She is hyper. She loves to help others. She always seems a bit overwhelmed but doesn’t really think she is. She is scatterbrained. She tends to be a BIT loud. And most like me, she has a LITTLE bit of a memory issue.

Yet in all that busyness her motto is “Just Keep Swimming”. I have taken on this motto for years and it truly keeps me going.

Dory is such a perfect match for my personality that once while on a road trip…

LIFE GOES ON

Today I decided if I want to move forward I have to put the car in drive. If I keep waiting for the perfect picture or perfect blog post words we will be seeing my first post at the age of 90. So here goes. I hope you enjoy it and if you don’t well then I hope you share your wisdom and words of advice with me.

Am I the only one who hears a song in their head when they read these words???

LIFEGOESON

For those struggling Google will help you out later, nope stay with me for now.

When we look at how many dynamics of life there are and how many different people there are, sitcoms often tell a true story.

They show us everyone is different, everyone has different issues, everyone experiences different things and at different times; and yet life still continues to go on. But you are smart, I am sure you knew that.

So why do so many of us struggle when it comes to working in teams or when leading? It is getting to know people and trying to understand these differences that makes or breaks us. It takes time.

We did not sit through a whole season of Life Goes On to learn about each of our fellow peers or employees lives.

These differences make up who we are, which of course leads us to the type of employee we become and the type of leader we become.

The person

who is an introvert

The person

who is an extrovert

The person

who is good at math

The person

who faces a mental disability

The person

who is diverse

The person

who has a child

The person

who wants to own their own business

The person

who gets fired

The person

who changes jobs many times

The person

who quits their job

The person

who (you fill in yours)

At every job I always end up being the one they turn to for “people” advice or the communication aspect as they say when it comes to leadership, teams and process. So why not share this knowledge with the world.

There is of course one disclaimer; this is my first blog so bear with me on this. To be truthful I did attempt one once but didn’t post anything and can’t even remember how to find that darn little thing. You may have already realized I think out loud and apparently type what I think as well. This might be why I am labeled an extrovert as they say. If you have not had the pleasure of already knowing me check out my about me page.

Question: Life Goes On, but will you go on in life where you are or will you be a better employee, better boss, a better leader? Share your answer below or with any of the many social networks listed.
