As they say, it is crazy what a year can do.
For me, it has been a little bit over a year and it is indeed crazy what it has done and continues to do for me.
In One Word: Soundcastle!
And In More Words:
Soundcastle is my employer but it goes way beyond what I do for a living.
Since I’ve joined over a year and a half ago, I have grown not just professionally but personally.
They do not just say they will listen, they actively and compassionately do.
They do not just say they will support, they do everything in their power to support.
They understand that sometimes (or maybe most of the time), we can’t leave life out the door when we come into work.
I have been through some difficult times as everyone does.
Working for an organisation like Soundcastle with an engraved wellbeing and care practice is- as cheesy as it sounds- life-changing!
It is not just a job for me. It is a safe haven where I am able to explore and grow out of my comfort zone.
And as we say at Soundcastle, it is all about the ripple effect.
Giving the space for someone to talk and take the time to listen might seem small, and yet the effect it has is limitless.
Happy Time to Talk Day! It is always time to talk for us.
Reach out, comment, share your ripple effect stories. We love to hear it all!
I would like to end this little talk with some words from Richard and Trevor from our People’s Music programmes in these short videos ➡️
