Did you ever sing “Happy Birthday” during a Town Hall?
I have recently published a post related to labels used when addressing working parents. Today, I want to applaud to all who are managing the juggle between parenting and professional fulfillment, who don’t forget their priorities no matter what situation they are in.
Watch Pete Poul-Graf, my husband and VP in DHL IT Services, make more than a hundred of his colleagues including the management team sing during a Town Hall in Prague today at the occasion of our daughter’s second birthday. I am grateful that Pete brings the human angle to any situation he is in and also that he is not exploring a career as a cameraman.
What is your trick to make your child’s birthday special while you are on a business trip? When did you last time witness a colleague in the office become creative in solving a family situation? How did the rest of people around respond?
Thanks to all those amazing DHL colleagues singing today and you can count on me, if you ever need me to return the favor!
