Being a successful professional and being 'silly' are not mutually exclusive! Remember to take some time and attend to your 'inner child'. Let go this Christmas, to relax, to play, to spread lots of genuine hugs and smiles, and step back to see the wondrous response you will receive from people... cause THAT'S JUST HOW BEAUTIFULLY AWESOME HUMAN NATURE IS!

When you own your awesomeness and are unapologetic about it, then you can feel no threat by other people's awesomeness. Instead, your confidence and enthusiasm spark positively one another, raising you to new levels! Now imagine this being the way your team operates and grows on a daily basis! This is the potential of diversity!
Don't alienate yourself by focusing on the challenges. Know that your group is as awesome as you are, each in their own unique ways!
Find the special talent for each of your persons and tap into it!
