Being “fair” over treating people as individuals leaves a lot of people suffering needlessly. It also becomes the excuse for us to not do anything (because we can’t do it for all).

There are so many great comments on this post.
Tom Dixon (@MondayisGood) on Misunderstandings are Always Your Fault, Even if They’re Not
I like it. I do think you have to have a certain amount of tact to pull it off without sounding condescending, but if you have the right personality for it I can see it working well. Thanks for sharing this.

You’re so spot on!!! It would be like me being a parent and buying my son and husband a Cinderella activity set for Christmas because my daughter loves that and she’s getting one, so everyone in the family should get one too.
Everyone (Mark Sieverkropp (@skropp2), Carol Dublin (@lcdublin), Wade Thorson (@Wade_Thorson), Bret Wortman (@BretWortman), and others) who got involved in a very touching conversation on Letters from Dad
It seems like “caring” has become a dirty word in business. “Stick to the facts, mam” is more of the standard. It often is a cold hard world out there, and when someone shows caring in a practical way, like time off when needed, it melts your heart and strengthens your bond.
