They vs. We A colleague recently said to me: There is no “they.” There is only “we.” There is no “them.” There is only “us.”
Before I went into the Air Force, I worked for a company that was trying to instill that thinking at every level. They even made mugs that said “Who is THEY, anyway?” All of us were expected — and allowed! — to come up with solutions and make great things happen. I loved that place.
I wish I still had that mug.
