I invested sometime in extending my LinkedIn network last week as I do regularly, and the response from one new contact has had me smiling ever since!
I always make a point of sending a personal note with each invitation to connect, rather than just fire off impersonal requests, as it’s a lovely way to start a conversation, and it was one of these personal notes that sparked the response that made me smile so much!
My new contact had taken the time to look at our website, which is always appreciated, and declared our internet platform to be ‘deliciously different’!
I didn’t expect that!
I was quick to respond to my new acquaintance with thanks for the intriguing accolade and keen to understand what had inspired the feedback.
Quite simply, this person just ‘got’ the spirit of what we embody at Chrysalis Consulting:
We’re a small team with a big energy
We get stuff done!
Dr Seuss is our honorary team member
We are the sum total of our experiences
We learn constantly
We listen attentively
We loathe the unethical
We look forward, but learn from the past
We live like adults
We laugh like kids
We love what we do
So yes, we are ‘deliciously different’!
We think Sue must be a ‘Master of the Dark Arts’, as she has hidden depths! Running our office with meticulous planning and capability, Sue is an avid list writer with a keen eye for detail. But don’t be fooled by that organised demeanour, for Sue is as creative as she is efficient! A skilled communicator with a humorous edge, Sue is as passionate about people and their learning and development as she is about becoming the future Mrs Tom Hardy or Mrs Benedict Cumberbatch (either will do!). An interesting career path has taken her from the glamour of working in luxury London hotels to the chilled Distribution Centres of supermarket retail, and whether managing small groups or large teams, people are at the heart of everything Sue does.
