Straight up, no kidding… I want to get to know my coworkers better.
Most of my friends hearing this would probably be shocked to see that I actually typed that out. You see, before coming to SmallBox, I generally preferred to keep my professional life as separate as possible from my personal life. In my PERSONAL life I am a goofball with a notoriously warped and ribald sense of humor. In my PROFESSIONAL life I try to be…professional. This might come from my training in journalism and public relations - I understand what image (not the way they look, but the way they act and carry themselves) can do for a person.
I mean, after all - if there is one thing I can do, it is look good.
However, my last few months as a SmallBoxer have helped me realize that I need to change tactics.
One of the things that makes SmallBox so awesome is that we, each and every employee, has personality. The company itself just oozes with personality and I believe that the organizations we work with know that. They see it in the projects we do, they get a healthy dose of it in every meeting they attend and e-mail we exchange. We are a really fun group of people. I actually enjoy coming in to the office every day and I completely recognize that I am really lucky in that regard. I also feel that for the first time in my career life I can actually be more Kasey than I have been before. It is liberating. I've got so much personality to give!
So this year, I want to get to know my fellow SmallBoxers better. Let them get to know the real Kasey. So now Drinks? Dinner? Dancing? The ball is in your court.
