Life Can Feel Quite Hard Sometimes

A leadership cartoon of three penguins standing in front of a giant, hard, reflective statue that spells, "LIFE". One penguin knocking on the hard surface says to the others, "Is it just me, or is this quite hard?". The text reads, "It's not just you." -Original artwork by Lee Sampson.

Admitting that life can be hard at times isn’t a weakness, it’s a fact. It’s not a hurdle to jump over, it’s a chance to do what social creatures do best, help each other.

Self Belief

A scene of penguins at a pool with a three-tiered diving board and penguins in various stages of taking the first step to jump into the pool, which has Self Belief written on it. The text reads, "Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right.-Henry Ford." -Original artwork by Lee Sampson

One of the influences on self-belief is the thoughts and labels we give ourselves.

Hide and Overthink

A giant Earth asks a penguin hiding under a blanket that has "What If'd" written on it, "Are you hiding?". The penguin replies, "No. I'm just spending some quality time with my 'What ifs'." The text reads, "Hide and overthink". -Original artwork by Lee Sampspn

Shyness and introversion in a team member can feel like a game of hide and seek to their manager or peers.

Quiet Up There

A penguin with their head open asks four mini-penguins floating around on thought bubbles with megaphones who are yelling at each other "I'm going to ask you to please return to your seats and refrain from arguing with each other. I'm trying to think." -Original artwork by Lee Sampson.

It is a challenge to concentrate when you’re thoughts are at odds with each other.
