TRIPLE III TIME: Recognizing & Appreciating “Security Blankets”
Did anyone ever GOOGLE the term “Security Blanket”? If you did, my guess is that you found Dictionary.com’s definition and meaning to read something like this:
“Someone or something that gives a person a sense of protection or a feeling of security.”
Now at first glance, you may be wondering which TRIPLE III TIME topic area does Security Blanket fall under? Communication? Professional Development? Innovation? Leadership? Or maybe that Special Topics area!
Let me explain.
Throughout my professional career, I have been fortunate to have co-workers that have provided me with that “sense of protection or a feeling of security.” Whether it was during a major Board meeting, preparing for an audit/monitoring visit, or delivering a workshop message, having individuals in the room that know, trust and support me has made me a better leader, communicator, and innovator!!
Likewise, I know I have reversed the Security Blanket role when I have attended a colleague/co-workers event/meeting. I could feel the extra confidence they had knowing I was there to support them and benefit from the learning they were offering. However, most often Security Blanket benefits are received in an unspoken and unthanked style…and are only quietly acknowledged.
This week’s TRIPLE III TIME message title: Recognizing & Appreciating “Security Blankets,” says it all. I recommend we break the Security Blanket silence and toss out a “THANK YOU” whenever you realize or experience a Security Blanket moment. Today I wish I could go back and let individuals or the gang know how protected and secure they made me feel everyday…EVERYDAY!
But I guess this TRIPLE III will have to fill the void for today.
