Dairy Processing - January/February 2023 - 6

COMMENTARY
Finding common
ground
We as a society are more connected than ever before. Our devices
keep us in the know about what's happening around the world,
up to date on news from family and friends and in the loop about
events happening within our communities. But that doesn't
always mean that we are connecting with one another.
Over the past 18 months, we've began dining out again,
traveling, visiting loved ones and attending events. Since late 2021,
the most common phrase heard at any tradeshow or industry
event has been, " It's so nice to be back together in person again. "
Connecting with each other face to face has a different effect
than chatting over Zoom, text or email. In-person interactions
can lead you to unexpected places. At the IDFA's Dairy Forum in
Orlando this January, I saw many lively conversations happening
as attendees took seats next to relative strangers, finding common
ground over which to connect. Me? I happened to sit next to
someone who'd been to the tiny, remote hamlet (year-round
population: 4) in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York
where I spent my summers growing up. We chatted and played a
game of 'do you know [insert name here]?' I don't know that we
would have made that connection via email or Zoom.
Person-to-person connections make us feel like we're a part
of something bigger. In our cover story, the leadership at Sargento
shares how treating everyone in its
organization like family is part of what
drives its success. Now heading into its
70th
year in operation, it's fair to say that
approach is working.
One of the most powerful assets any
organization has is its people, especially
if those people feel connected to one
another. So let's remember to put down
the phone once in a while, log off Zoom
and have real conversations with the
people around us. Finding common ground is easier than it seems.
