After watching #Encanto last night, here are some thoughts about parallels to work teams (NOT family dynamics). Each character has their own special “gift” which seems to largely define them and their role in the team. That’s often how things are at work too. Maribel is … 1/?
… different. She doesn’t have a “gift” (at least not one we know of). In other words, she’s not specialized. It’s not even apparent if she’s “deep” on anything. Turns out, she is, but not in the traditional understanding of “deep”. 2/?
Maribel is an embodiment of a long list of gifts that tend to be undervalued in a work context: Curiosity, courage, care, seeing the bigger picture, empathy, connection. All of that combined is what ends up making her magical. Her gift is integration. 3/3 #Encanto
