crying in public

tissue box cozyI’m becoming known at one of my clients as “the consultant who makes people cry.” How? At the onboarding conferences I’ve been facilitating, we save 60-90 minutes to sit in a circle, and each of us takes turns telling about an artifact or a photo that tells something about us beyond what we do at work. This sharing seems to be increasingly rare, and people are hungry for it. Perhaps, as this brilliant article suggests, it’s becoming rare because of our technology.
