There seems to be a lot of hugging going on in football. While I can’t really make sense of a game where 20 men chase & kick a defenseless white ball around a grass field (I’m sure there’s a society against this form of cruelty somewhere), I think the hugging – both literally and figuratively – is one of the best things we could do as individuals and as a company. And this goes to everyone from the entry level staff to our top management, customers and partners.
Hugging, like Jack Mitchell (Hug Your People by Jack Mitchell - Hyperion, 2008) says, can take the form of a physical hug, a pat on the back or just warm words or gestures which show you appreciate that person and their contributions to your world.
The team at Alien Logistics gets hugged a lot, and the hugs get passed on in a virtuous circle to others, helping us form good working relationships with the network of people we work with every day.

Well, I have to go now… I have some people to hug, places to go, and things to do!
