I used to work in an organised environment. I should probably clarify. I’m still organised, obviously(!), but I used to work for a corporation. The BBC, to be exact, where I was an arts broadcaster and journalist. So I was used to lots of sharing office space and watercooler moments.
Now that I run my own business, those watercooler moments are rarely in real time. Especially as many of my peripatetic team are in their twenties. We even have one employee who is 19. We love the energy that this brings, the new perspectives and invaluable insights into the lives of millennials and the generation behind them (now I feel old – for the record I’m 45). But it can sometimes feel as though we are communicating on different planets.
