There are certain types of people that I would categorize as “enablers,” people who enable others to be better versions of themselves. This class of person exists across all social and professional contexts.

At work, this person makes sure everyone feels important and is contributing to the team. In a social setting, like at a party, this person’s presence makes everyone else have more fun.

These types of people are critical to have around. I think this as much a personality trait as something you could learn how to do, but it is not something you can really teach. It is instinctual.

We need more enablers in the world…people willing to take one for the team for the enjoyment of others.
