Myers Briggs personality type

#myerbriggstype #infjpersonality #me #thisisme …Things finally make sense. “INFJs are gentle, caring, complex and highly intuitive individuals. Artistic and creative, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities. Only one percent of the population has an INFJ Personality Type, making it the most rare of all the types.” #infj #infjpersonality #infjproblems #infj #introvert #introvertlife #introvertproblems #myersbriggs #myerbriggspersonalitytype #humanressources #hrmanager #recruitment #leadership #management #managementteam #teammanagement #leadershipcoaching #leadershipcoach #leadershiplife #leadingbyexample #mentoring #management #humanresources #selfdevelopment #leadershipcoaching #teamleader #teamleadership #leadershipskills #coaching #leadership vs #management #hrmanager #mentor #introvert #introvertlife #introvertproblems #myersbriggs #myerbriggstype #myerbriggspersonalitytype

LGBT month: HR newby fighting for equality

People never should have to apologize for what they are. And yet in 2016 it still looks like we have a VERY long way to go…

Some days I feel like TOLERANCE and ACCEPTANCE are fading away whilst we live with the most advance technology, we have more education and we have to deal with more people of every kind everyday.

I remember when I was HR Administrator – at the very beginning of my career. One of our managers had just adopted an orphan little boy. We would usually send a global email around when employees would become parents (most likely following them giving birth).He had become a parent as well and he was HAPPY and so PROUD he wanted to get the news out….so I sent an email saying him and his partner had adopted a child.


 “Paul and his partner adopted a 1 year old little boy named Sam, please join me in wishing them all the best”

What I didn’t know is I was creating a lot of “inconvenience”by sending this one line… We were working in a male driven environment, boys club type. I was told our director then asked why I had sent this email? “are we going to send an email next time someone buys a dog?” he asked.

I was really unpleased by his reaction. Clearly there wouldn’t have been any issue if the manager wasn’t GAY. Yes. Let’s put it out there. He is gay. And so what?? Surely by sending this email I wasn’t disclosing his sexual orientation. So why make a drama out of this one sentence? How was this BADLY REGLECTING on the business? Or was it making HIM feel unconfortable?

That day I had made 1 person happy (actually 2 including me) and for whoever knew he is gay I showed we were a company who is treating our people EQUALLY : straight or gay, biological parent or not. It also showed we were SUPPORTIVE (even if the company wasn’t, I WAS. And I was HR…how powerful was that?) From that day my relationship with that manager improved, he was thankful and anytime he would travel to our London office I would ask about his children, he would show me pictures on his mobile like all parents do and tell me how difficult parenting is (especially with a non biological kid who didn’t have a great start in life).

But I was happy for this newly built family and I would have felt really bad for not offering this exciting moment to this manager when colleagues call/email you to congratulate you for the arrival of a new child.

Job done.
