So I’m temporarily working with the amazing folks at OpenNews. And words like this are why I love them dearly: https://source.opennews.org/articles/acknowledging-our-full-selves/
Treat people as whole people. Not just workers, not just experts. But whole people. Parents, siblings, hobbyists, nerds, busy, complicated, tired, hungry, friends, family.
Make space for the beautiful, the messy, the difficulty and pain. Let folk be whole fucking people who carry their community and their hearts with them wherever they are. Let people be broken and joyful in whatever measure they need.
Do that and people step up and shine brighter than the best full spectrum bulb you can find.
