Everything I need to know I learned in Kindergarten

In Public Relations on June 10, 2010 at 7:10 pm

What were those sayings the teacher always said..? Say sorry…when you hurt somebody…play fair…clean up your mess, lol. Warm cookies and milk are good for you and live a balanced life….

Those are really the greatest tips I ever learned…and especially useful in my current profession…public relations.

Just think about it, “Play fair.” This rule is vital to any business’ long-term plan and becomes essential especially in PR, where transparency is often preferred.

“Share everything.” This goes back to the importance of information sharing and transparency in the PR industry. I think what could be added to this is “share everything and stay honest”.

“Clean up your own mess.” I think this lesson is particularly crucial. The BP oil spill is a great example. When your client has made a mistake or an accident has occurred, it is important to proactively get involved in “cleaning up” the mess.

So maybe all we really need to know about business and public relations we could have learned from our kindergarten teachers…ehhhhh….??? Well, maybe the basics.

Btw…when is nap time? smhl
