Celebrating & Honoring People on Labor Day Weekend
“Following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, the United States Congress unanimously voted to approve rush legislation that made Labor Day a national holiday in 1894; President Grover Cleveland signed it into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.” Source: Wikipedia
Since then we have honored all workers on the first Monday in September.
This brings to my mind the human struggle to matter. Humans want to know that others see them and that they count in some way. It also makes me wonder how this world would be different if every single person — right now — felt that others valued them. Celebrating & honoring people could make a tremendous difference.
I invite you to join me and the entire online People Skills community in #peopleskills global Twitter chat for celebrating & honoring people — everyday people who live and work without fanfare or celebrity.
Some questions to get us thinking about celebrating & honoring people:
- What is ONE thing you think every person wants?
- “I get no respect.” ~Rodney Dangerfield Do many people feel this way? Y/N? Why?
- People get what they ___________________?
- Do we value leaders/celebrities more than we celebrate non-celebrities?
- How are accommodation and sharing related to celebrating & honoring people, if at all?
- In this fast paced world, is it possible to see and honor others? How/Why not?
- In the workplace, how can leaders and managers value the everyday worker more?
- How can we honor the human need to matter?
- How would the world be different if every human felt that they mattered?
These are just some questions to get us thinking. Actual questions will post live during the chat.
So bring your personal perspective, your experience, a beverage, and join the community on Sunday Aug. 31, 2014, 10am EDT in People Skills Chat on Twitter (hashtag: #peopleskills). Let your voice ring out during this chat to show every human being they matter!
