Vixen on Competence, on Collaboration, on Caring, and on Blixem

‘Twas a week before Christmas
When all through the team
Every creature was stirring
Five via live stream.

Work products were finished
By the employees with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas
Soon would be there.

The colleagues were dressed
In their finest new threads
Office parties and merriment
Danced in their heads.

The streets of DC freezing
Enough to wear caps
All of us hoping
For some time to take naps.

When suddenly my email
Ping and ponged with a clatter
I sprang to my standing desk
To see what was the matter.

A problem at your workplace
So I flew like a flash
Together we talked
A colleague had been brash.

Our talking revealed
Mean words fallen like snow
Tainting relationships and productivity
Above and below.

When what to my wondering eyes
Should appear
An enlightened and humble leader
Oh what a dear!

With kindness and generosity
So lively and quick
I knew in a moment
Some help from St. Nick!

More rapid than eagles
Her words and actions they came
And she praised and appreciated
As she called them by name.

Now Work Ethic! Now Kindness!
Now Humor and Vixen!
On Competence! On Collaboration!
On Caring and Blixem!

To the top of the skyscrapers
And in every company hall
Spread accountability, responsibility
Appreciation to all.

She sprang to her Uber
And gave her team a big whistle
But I heard her exclaim
As she rode out of sight

“Happy Christmas to all
And to all a good night!”
