Gratitude goes a long way, especially when you are working on a project and it is finally completed.
Being Authentic when creating your moments celebrating success
In mid-May I had a project, which was quite complex. I didn’t really know how complex it was until 2 weeks prior to it occurring. I had a dear colleague share with me that I was going to need a great deal of assistance – much more than I had anticipated. (This type of project wasn’t my expertise, but it was hers and I listened!) I took heed and went into action quickly enrolling my support team to assist me. They did an exceptional job and everything went well. Throughout the project we had moments celebrating successes as they occurred. As significant miles stones were reached, I communicated to the team and we had small ‘happy dances’ to celebrate the successes.
As I was expressing my appreciation for the efforts and coordination of certain activities, one team member suggested we have a party to celebrate. When better than in early Autumn, to have a fabulous meal and a friendly gathering around the fire ring on a Saturday night? That was this past weekend. It was so great to see everyone smiling and having fun, sharing great conversation, and creating many moments celebrating.
I am blessed. This team was over a dozen of wonderfully talented women. One flew in from North Carolina to assist with the party preparations and to celebrate. Everyone contributed something wonderful for our meal and the sangria flowed! Indeed we sat outside for hours, eventhough the temperatures were just above freezing. I believe the conversational flow was even greater than the sangria as the “team” continued to build their own relationships with one another. It was a grand time and everyone felt appreciated and valued – that was my goal for this gathering because it is the fact.
