Closing And Welcoming The Year Of Humanity

Last year Temkin Group labelled 2018, The Year of Humanity. With all of the discord and tension throughout the world, it seemed like a good time to promote the following mindset:

  • Embrace diversity. Recognize our differences and find ways to treat people as individuals.
  • Extend compassion. Tune into the condition of the people around us and care about their well-being.
  • Express appreciation. Proactively look for and acknowledge the positive aspects of the world around us.

The focus on humanity seemed to resonate with a lot of people. Rather than moving on to another theme for the upcoming year, we’ve decided to double down on this critical topic and also make 2019, The Year of Humanity.”

I’ll be posting more on this topic. Here are some highlights from our existing humanity content:

As part of this year’s focus on humanity, I’ll also be supporting the 5 For The Fight, a non-profit organization that supports cancer research. When we were considering joining forces with Qualtrics, the company’s support of this great charity was one of the deciding factors in our decision. Feel free to join us in this great cause.

The bottom line: Let’s collectively improve humanity in 2019!

I'm an experience (XM) management catalyst; helping organizations improve results by engaging the hearts and minds of their employees, customers, and partners. I enjoy researching and speaking about leading-edge XM topics. I lead the Qualtrics XM Institute, which is the world's best job. We're igniting a global community of XM Professionals who are inspired and empowered to radically improve the human experience. To achieve this goal, my team focuses on thought leadership, training, and community building. My work is driven by a set of fundamental beliefs: 1) Everything starts and ends with human beings, so you need to understand how people think, feel, and behave; 2) XM is a discipline that needs to be woven throughout an organization's entire operating fabric; and 3) Building the XM discipline requires a combination of culture, competency, and technology.
