What do YOU love about your work?
Our Valentine’s Day posting isn’t an interview. We are asking YOU to join the conversation.
We hope that every reader has some aspect of their work that they love.
I’ll start my own here.
I love talking to interesting people.
I love “having to” keep up with what is going on in the world.
I love helping people make their work life better because they understand themselves and others better.
I love sharing ideas with others.
I love (some of) my colleagues.
I love (some of) my students.
I love reading and telling stories.
Now it’s your turn. Take the leap. Think about it and then post it.
