The celebrations are over, the decorations have been put away, the house and the office seem a little drab now. Suddenly, you capture something in the corner of your eye. It’s a houseplant! Maybe with all the excitement, you’ve forgotten about them a little?

January 10th is houseplant appreciation day. These plants provide us with wellbeing, a living presence in the room and contribute to a clean atmosphere. And yet, because they don’t make any noise and rarely come to the forefront, we often forget them.
I was thinking that sometimes we don’t show enough consideration and gratitude to those who work with and for us.

In our organisations, we have colleagues that quietly and efficiently go about their business, doing what’s right for the organisation; people who effectively and reliably deal with situations without creating a fuss and playing hero. Do you know who they are? Have you told them recently how important their contribution is for the health and performance of your organisation?

At Yinsight, we don’t encourage the hero culture, we prefer helping people to grow, be competent, in the right place and help them make an effective contribution to the performance of your organisation.
