All, all and entirely all the work we do is people. Your job is to make the person in front of you feel empowered.
The wonderful human beings around you and me are already carrying a lot of emotional baggage. Yet they walk out into the world to produce epic results and they fail: because they are not supported at the core, as a human being.
Show me one emotionally powerful human being and I will show you a human being who empowers others. It is nothing more than a flow of energy.
Solution. If you believe that you are not being empowered or treated kindly by anyone, you start empowering them. Be kind to them for no reason. Not only in words, rather in the thoughts. Do not wait for them to change, model them what and how change looks like.
It is impossible that you do not witness magic happen.
