I opened the passenger door of the rideshare car on October 31st to a small surprise: The friendly, petite woman driver greeted me cheerfully wearing a Mardi Gras mask! I returned her greeting as I got in and noticed she had a beautiful, complex spider web pattern shaved into her hair. She was ready for Halloween!
This word surprised the group of 30 people from the Lean construction community gathered for a workshop at the Catalonia Institute for Construction Technology (iTeC) in Barcelona where I was on holiday.
“Amor.” A ripple of smiles and happy murmurs moved through the room when I said the answer to fear at work is love.
