Elegance. Remembering and understanding.

Elegance. Remembering and understanding.
By Mary Trigiani • Issue #1090 • View online
Elegance is not being noticed but being remembered. So says Giorgio Armani, fashion designer and executive. (Or it’s been attributed to Mr. Armani.) In a world that currently seems consumed with outsized gestures, in which we are encouraged to grab and hog the limelight, this sentiment is particularly compelling. The workplace offers us a multitude of ways to act elegantly, beginning with seeking to understand – not just to be understood. (A line from a prayer inspired by another famous Italian, Francis of Assisi.) Maybe it begins with understanding ourselves and our own motivations, then seeking alignment with others. Openly and fairly. The best workplaces exemplify stated principles only when their leaders enact them – not just spout platitudes or apply them selectively. Beyond being remembered, fairness is elegant in its subtlety, while its absence is abundantly clear.
