(David Pinto – Mumbai, India) – In India, we have an initiative called Evol started by the youth of the Focolare Movement. It tries to bring the attitude of more development of the society starting in the family and taking it outwards in different spheres of our lives. We decided to plan an event where we could take this desire ahead and introduce it at the workplace where one of us worked. It is a PR firm.
We started working on Thursday evening as we were basically catering for lunch the next day. Here is when we first implemented The Company Cube. When we rolled it first we got the side of the cube which read: SUPPORT – With Actions Not Just Words. I personally just read it and didn’t think about it that much, when concretely there were various moments to do just this while working that evening together especially when we had to organize the work for the next morning. This effort to support each other continued the next day till we had finished preparing the meal for the Office.
Once we reached there we set up everything and were ready to share more about ourselves and introduce the company cube to them as well. When again we said its time to roll it! We read it and it said SHARE EXPERTISE, TIME, YOURSELF! Wow, so relevant considering we were going to do just that, plus it meant assurance to take the effort to live it further more. Especially for myself, since I was the one going to talk to everyone. Definitely I was nervous but this gave me a further push towards living it. We love the Cube because it really helps to change this style of working and make an impact wherever we might have to work as well. The response from the company was phenomenal as well. SO happy for what this can give back to society, it’s so valuable
