ABOUT THE PERRY PERSPECTIVE
A lot of what's missing in society AND in the modern workplace is the willingness to acknowledge and connect with the humanity of others. Sure, we interact with our colleagues throughout our day, but usually do so in conjunction with a task we're trying to complete. That "need to complete" mindset often leads to making every interaction as brief and efficient as possible.
Is that truly problematic?
In and of itself, no. You check another box off your to-do list, and let's face it…who doesn't love to see those checkmarks? BUT in our daily high-productivity quest, we pay the price in missed opportunities to truly HEAR PEOPLE and CONNECT.
Our Guiding Principles
Whether it's business or pleasure-the connections we have with others play a large part in how we prioritize the things we do with or for those people. Think about it. If two colleagues ask you to complete the same task by close of business and you only have time to complete the request for one person-you're more likely to prioritize the need of the colleague with whom you have a deeper connection. Yes, it's a business decision, but you're human-and human connectivity plays a part in your decision-making process, whether you realize it or not.
