Is it condescending to speak to all of your team about the cold?

It's cold and by all accounts it will be getting colder. It's the time of year when dark skies and cold weather make commuting more time-consuming and more dangerous. I think it's a good idea to speak to each member of your team about leaving a little earlier, driving a little safer, discussing where they park and ensuring they wrap up warm.

Some may see this as condescending but I think it's caring and shows some interest and compassion. Making sure that all your team are safe and well is a good start to every day.

The way you carry this out is entirely up to you - be it a team thing, a one-to-one or an internal email, I think the short amount of time taken to do this will make a difference to all.

Just a short note today, inspires by the weather!
