Note:  The power outages this week reminded me of a story from long ago.   I wish I had shared it sooner….like during the mid-term elections when I heard people talk about having no power because of a person or situation that had taken it away.

We may have to hunt around.   And it might not be exactly what we had in mind.  But it’s there somewhere.   

Read this.  Share it with others on your team  Finding and feeling one’s power is a must for morale & productivity – yours and theirs.

Here it is.

It’s easy to forget the impact we have and could have.

In our role as leaders,  as family and community members, each of us has the opportunity to affect others in simple, yet powerfully positive ways.

We asked an attendant how to get to our hotel. His name was Mr. Parsons. As he gave directions, he walked with us down one escalator, through the subway area and then up another escalator. It was a long walk. There was time for him to tell us a little history about the area, tell us about some interesting spots to visit and even talk a bit about sports. We asked where we could get a route map for the train. “I just happen to have one right here,” he said as he pulled one from his pocket Read more

Working, shopping, wrapping, decorating, cooking, partying…it’s enough to make a person sick. And tired and stressed and maybe even a bit Scrooge-like. Terrible for the morale and productivity of any person, any leader, any team. This week’s quote stems from a story that has contributed to the prevention and reversal of much Scrooge-like behavior over the years. Because of that, it has become a tradition to share it far and wide. let there be sprinkles everywhere For full appreciation, be sure to read: Traditions. Here’s an exerpt: Read more

There are all kinds of traditions at all times of the year.

Whether it’s the tradition of having pizza in the living room on Sunday nights.  Or Tuesday lunches with the boys. Or Wednesday date nights without the kids. Or annual shopping trips for sisters.

Traditions can be powerful.

Reassuring.

Grounding.

Bonding.

The holidays are especially full of traditions.

And sometimes they need to change. Read moreDigiprove sealCopyright secured by Digiprove © 2017
