Fun Day

The company threw a garden party and fun day this week. It was a very nice atmosphere. There were sandwiches, burgers, cakes, chocolates and crisps. There were games both in the call centre and outside. It was a lovely day and the sun was shining.

We were able to eat our burgers outside in the sunshine, while listening to one of our colleagues singing. She has a fantastic voice. There were some people dancing. There were people playing basket ball, football, and other outdoor games.

Inside the call centre we had a box of games that was doing the rounds. Our team particularly like Jenga. We had a lot of laughs playing it – amidst all the cheating!

The day after it was found that some people were not allowed to take part in the fun and games. Seems that some managers thought people would be better off on the phones all day without taking part, and other managers didn’t make sure that all their team took part. Consequently there were a few people with a lot of complaints.

We have access to Yammer at work. For those who don’t know, Yammer is like Facebook but only for companies. You can only access Yammer if your company has an account, and you can only speak to work colleagues on it. It’s been used by a few people at my call centre to complain about their lack of participation in the fun day. Trouble is it wasn’t just a complaint that one particular person logged. He also blamed other teams for playing games and went so far as to say that other teams should be punished!

This person failed to realise that it is primarily the managers that have to organise things and make sure that things are done fairly. If his manager didn’t allow him the time to take part then he needs to take it up with his manager, or the next person up. He shouldn’t be putting blame on his work colleagues.

It’s a shame that this has happened. Everyone should have the same opportunity. I saw one of the sales managers going around the teams and making sure that everyone had taken part. So why were there people missed out? If they weren’t at their desk when the sales manager went round, then it is up to their direct manager to make sure that they are included.

It seems to me that there are a couple of managers who need to apologise to some, or, in some cases, all of their teams.

I'm an EFT practitioner, Matrix Reimprinter, Colour Therapist, Reiki Healer, Tarot Reader, And Astrologer. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was pioneered by Gary Craig, tapping on acupressure points to help a person heal themselves. It proved to be extremely effective and has been taken up by many people worldwide. The therapy was taken further by Karl Dawson who found it very effective to enable the client to access memories, many hidden, sometimes pre-birth. By accessing the memory in the matrix the client is able to identify the root of problem areas, and with the help of the practitioner address the initial cause of trauma, phobias, addictions, pain, etc. I also use colour therapy and reiki as separate therapies, but they also work well together. It's no coincidence that nurses wear blue - blue is a very calming and relaxing colour. Just the thing you need when recovering. Too much blue, however, can lead to withdrawal and in some cases depression. We've all heard the term: 'I'm having a blue day'. This is just one colour example. Reiki is a very relaxing complementary healing technique that originated in the East. It is used worldwide as an effective therapy. The practitioner allows universal energy to flow through them into the client, to help the client recover. The therapies mentioned above are complementary. In orders words they can be used alongside modern medical practices. I do not diagnose or prescribe. Diagnosis and medication is dealt with by your GP or hospital consultant. I've been reading the tarot and runes for over 30 years both in the UK and internationally. I'm also a member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain after studying astrology through the Mayo School of Astrology. I offer Natal Charts, Reports, and Readings. Please note: Tarot and astrology is for guidance only. The reading or report will not make decisions for you and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice.
