Seasons greetings: a message from allan stewart, two people walking on a snowy path

A letter from the President of Human Synergistics Canada

Season's Greetings Everyone:

As 2021 winds to a close, I wanted to share my thoughts on the past year, as well as my hopes for the future. Now, more than any other time, we must continue to think and act in Constructive ways. For, it is only by continuing to control how we think and feel about ourselves, our relationships with others, and the tasks ahead of us can we emerge from this pandemic as strong (or stronger) than we were before.

  1. Look for creative ways to solve the problems facing your business. Most of you have developed great online methods to hold virtual coaching, training & development. Some have revamped old, tired programs and dropped outdated assessments. Several have beefed up their teambuilding programs by incorporating the new online GSI. Others have realized that there has never been a more pressing need to assess and change an organization’s culture. The number of creative solutions to this crisis is limitless. (Self-Actualizing)
  2. Continue to set new goals for yourself and help your clients do the same. I have been pleasantly surprised with how many of you have been able to convince your clients to still invest in training and development. This means that you have not given up – but realize individual effort counts. And those who understand this are making a difference. (Achievement)
  3. Understand that many of your clients and colleagues are struggling in their efforts to try and navigate through this crisis. Now, more than ever, they need sage advice and trustworthy guidance. Remember that a third of your clients and colleagues will be feeling despair and helplessness, while another third will be angry and resentful. Both groups, more than ever before, need your help. I have always been impressed with the caliber of the consultants who work with us. Now is the time to use all of your skills to steer your clients through this mess. (Humanistic-Encouraging)
  4. Our philosophy has always been that we view our clients as Partners – that our success is determined by their success. I invite you all to not only view us as your partners, but do the same with your clients. The more that we all work together the better we will be able to help your client organizations solve the problems facing them right now. (Affiliative)

As a final thought, please remember that one of Abraham Lincoln’s favourite sayings was; “This too shall pass.”

Take care and as much as you are able, enjoy this time with your family and friends.
