Everyone at work was somewhat surprised when at post-shift huddle-up, I asked them to form a circle, hold each other’s hands, and bow in prayer. Actually, we’re used to morning prayers, but not in the evening, and I thought, why not? We’re at the contact center most of our waking hours talking to total strangers, skillfully turning them into customers, loyal patrons even, rapport-building day in, day out with that sweet, convincing voice using powerful spiels, so keeping an open communication with God with prayers is chicken.
Usually at the end of the work shift, we just ask each to proudly declare their output for the day incentivized with cheerful praises and a round of loud applause. With prayers, we won’t miss expressing our gratitude for simply surviving the daily grind, hitting our productivity targets is of course a welcome bonus.
