Under our Talking Story heading of Better Conversations:
I am incredibly excited about September ”“ I have grand plans!
I know many of you are celebrating the Labor Day holiday, however we are staying on schedule with our Ho‘ohana Publishing calendars because our value of the month is all about what Labor Day should be about”
A month-long celebration on the true worth of work.
Our value for the month of September is one that is very dear to my heart. If I were asked to choose one and only one value that is representative of the entire Managing with Aloha mission it would be this one, second only to the value of Aloha itself. If there ever was a month I’m praying you stick with me all month through, reading every Tuesday Coaching Essay the day it is published, and working through our monthly journey together personally, no matter what the rest of your organization may be going through right now, it is this one.
Our value for the month of September is Ho‘ohana, the value of worthwhile work.
Read all about it within my Day One Essay on Managing with Aloha Coaching:
MY MANA‘O (what I believe to be true) ~ ~ ~
Part of my own Ho‘ohana work, is something we call “Citizen Publishing.”
The second place to be: Joyful Jubilant Learning.
We each have a two-fold decision to make about our personal use of the web:
To who, what, where, and when do I give the most valuable gift I can give someone publishing online for me?
Why do I bother in the first place? What’s in it for me?
There is a ton of learning involved with that two-fold decision (and
their inherent 5 Ws), and that, my fellow JJLers, is what we would like
to explore in the coming month.
Both are Ho‘ohana to me
I have been waiting anxiously for September, for I have been feeling the need to revisit the value of Ho‘ohana for a while now. Could I have declared it our value of the month earlier? Yes and no; I wanted to be totally prepared for it, and in so many ways September seemed to be saying, “Wait for Labor Day, wait for me.”
Well, the waiting is over, and September is here. I fervently hope you will Ho‘ohana with me too.
