Be generous with kind words, especially about those who are absent. ~ Goethe
Even so, another hurtful comment down the road can bring a person right back to the pain of the original comment.
Does that mean we can never be critical or evaluate behaviours? of course not! Constructive feedback is essential to growth.
We know that being hurt is unavoidable, especially for those of us who have raised children and have wanted so badly for them to find their niche. Getting hurt is part of growing up. It happens.
And when it happens at the office, isn’t it good to know that you have teammates who’ve got your back and want the best for you?
It’s also said that we shouldn’t talk about others behind their back.
I say go for it.
But say something nice!
Because you know what’s better than someone saying something nice TO you?
Somebody saying something nice ABOUT you to someone else, and it getting back to you!
The next time someone says something wonderful about one of your co-workers – go tell them!
