This past week was pretty intense, as I was separated from the majority of my co-workers, who have been like my second family for the past 6 years...The company I work for went through some changes, which forced this temporary separation. And even though I will be joining them on November 1st, I must admit I was a bit overwhelmed with emotion at the thought of not seeing their familiar faces every day. It's funny how you get to develop such great friendships at the workplace, with all the stress, tight deadlines, insane competition for better results...Me and my co-workers were blessed with an ideal environment for becoming friends, thanks to an amazing organizational culture. I was thinking today how important it is to feel comfortable with the people you work with, to find a common goal, to share ideas and interests.
I need to stop before this turns into one of the lectures from University: "Today, we'll be covering topics like: organizational behavior, organizational culture, bla, bla, bla" :).
Honestly though, I will miss everybody terribly, and I can't wait to join them. I will be right in time for the winter holidays :P, so I could not think of a better moment to be reunited with "my family".
Have a wonderful weekend!
