 From Larry Winget Mine should be called what I relearned this year: Time spent with friends is worth every minute and every dollar invested.  A few days, a few bucks, a few great meals, some good whiskey, along with some lies and laughs will do wonders for you. Time spent [...]

By | 2016-10-29T15:29:22+00:00 October 27th, 2014|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

From Larry Winget: Role models are nothing more than a reflection of what we value. When we value honesty, integrity, doing the right thing, morals, good parenting, leadership and hard work, we will have role models who exemplify those values. Since we instead value fame, celebrity, being pretty and living [...]

By | 2016-10-29T15:29:23+00:00 October 20th, 2014|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

The Road Runner cartoons are wrong. Wile E. Coyote is the exception rather than the rule. Coyotes are idea models for remaining nimble and flourishing in the face of change. Need proof? They continue to grow and expand in the face of continuous human encroachment on their territory. They do [...]

From Joe Calloway: OK – here’s my answer. It’s the answer for me and not necessarily for you. The answer is that you don’t work with a jerk. My vendors and colleagues aren’t jerks. My customers aren’t jerks because we have a finely tuned“ jerk filter” on the front end [...]

How much paid vacation do you receive from your company? Do you take it all, or do you find yourself giving or banking time at the end of the year? Would you take more time off if you were allowed? Even if it meant that your team would underperform or [...]

By | 2016-10-29T15:29:23+00:00 September 30th, 2014|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

From Randy Pennington: It depends on your definition of “teamwork.”  It is absolutely critical if you define teamwork as everyone having a shared vision; clear roles and responsibilities; delivering their best to help the entire unit succeed; and keeping personal differences from derailing the group’s performance and results. The problem [...]

There is no shortage of change models being pushed by authors and consultants. Each claims their supporters and detractors. I have one as well. It is the latest iteration of a model I developed and began using and presenting in 1989. Twice in the past two weeks perspective clients have [...]

From Mark Sanborn: The worst enemy of business? Indifference. Indifference is a lack of concern, interest or sympathy and it hurts business in two areas: people & process. A lack of concern for your employees/colleagues and your customers/clients is the quickest way to destroy commitment and loyalty. Even when you [...]
