Securing The Sense Of “My Place” In The Workplace

The desire for “my place” is strong.

A place where you feel at home, to hang your hat, where you can be yourself, where you can surround yourself with things that remind you of what’s important.

For some it’s their home, for others it’s their car or a nook or room in their house and for some, it is their workplace.

Hugh Mackay, in his book What Makes Us Tick, says…

“My place” is partly an anchor, partly a refuge, partly a stable reference point in a world that seems kaleidoscopic in the complexity of its shifting patterns.”

Mackay goes on to say that the “sense of place” not only helps to frame us, to define us but it also contributes to our sense of who we are.
