I am a Revolutionary, an HRevolutionary!

by John on May 4, 2011

I am a Revolutionary.

I share what I know and what I’ve learned with others.

I care about my profession and the people whose lives I impact directly and indirectly.

I read, I write, I debate, and try to challenge conventional wisdom and thinking.

I try to bring the best out in myself and others.

I am a mentor and a mentee.

I ask tough questions of others, but I’m even tougher on myself.

I hold myself accountable.

I am an example.

I am a Revolutionary.

I welcome others into the family.

I cherish and embrace diverse people, thoughts, and points of view.

I smile and laugh.

I hug.

I cry.

I dance like no one’s watching.

I am a leader.

I am the future.

I am a Revolutionary!

An HRevolutionary!

John, thank you for such an amazing post! You really capture how I feel too. Sometimes I feel paralyzed from a writing standpoint after HRevolution. I sit back and watch as people who attend write about it, dissect it, give great summaries of the sessions, and cover every aspect of the day from the food to the nightlife. I love that HRevolution helps people find their passion.

What you’ve done is something different though. What you’re capturing is that highly personal feeling. I just love it!

A revolutionary indeed! John, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you – and exchange competitive tweets in the #HRSlam session 😉 And a refreshing summing up – like it.

And you most def do dance like no one is watching…. 😉

Super post Johnny – I am with you all the way, except maybe for the hugging part.

Thanks so much for being one of the rocks that the HRevolution is built upon. Great seeing you again and hope the next time is soon.

To the future, John. I will see you there.

So Steve, does that mean that you didn’t hug but you cried? lol
