In our pursuit of success, we often forget the need to socialize. Aristotle reminds us that “Man is by nature a social [being]”, and that without social interaction, our humanity comes into question.
One of the most toxic elements of the modern workplace is the absence of social interaction – worse yet, individuals who see no value in a kind gesture, or a simple heartfelt “good morning”. Such is the consequence of the lack of social interaction, and managers are today encouraged to nip this trend, or risk achieving a healthy work environment that promotes real productivity.
So put aside the project document for a few hours, and have a blast with friends or family this weekend.
