I have some fabulous work colleagues. Following a recent conversation one of them appeared in my office with an inflatable elephant. He is now sitting in the corner of my office. His presence has caused much hilarity.
However, we can’t and mustn’t talk about him. We can’t acknowledge his presence at all. We can talk about anything else but not about him. We have to ignore him.
Too often this is true of our lives, relationships and circumstances. If we are going to empower people and grow then things should not be ignored.
My new elephant will stay in the corner of my office and constantly be a reminder that things should never just be ignored.
