PLAYING NICE Doesn’t Always Mean BEING NICE

PLAYING NICE Doesn’t Always Mean BEING NICE

Standing up and speaking up for what you believe in IS playing nice. That’s the paradox of the PLAY NICE system that I base my training and conflict resolution on.  We need to be assertive to balance our needs with the needs of others, and we don’t have to harm or hurt people, places or things in doing it.
One Decision to Make Change Exciting

One Decision to Make Change Exciting

Imagine you’re in a comfortable groove playing nice in the sandbox … and then everything changes.  Change is inevitable.  Things are always changing and we get off balance. 
Fear in The New Sandbox

Fear in The New Sandbox

A bitter phrase that I’m resisting is ‘the new normal’, because I won’t accept what currently is, for what will be. This is temporary in my mind, and in the words of my favorite author, Og Mandino, “this too shall pass” and it will.

Want to make a MINT in this new economy?

Getting back to business in this slower economy, gives us tremendous opportunity to sharpen our tools for business growth.  We can use this breathing space in the economy to strengthen our foundation of skills and knowledge to survive and thrive in difficult times.  As I always say, you can’t build a castle on quicksand.  Strengthening your foundation will help you make a MINT in this new economy.

One Thing that builds Trust in Remote Teams

There’s a better way to build value in training, educating and helping your team dig into the best sandbox play possible – Virtual Programming with my High Tech – High Touch Learning strategies.
Staying Connected and Supportive

Staying Connected and Supportive

In this time of social distancing and trying to figure out our new “normal”, many of us are isolated and learning to work from home.  Learning how to communicate and connect in this unprecedented time can be a struggle for many.   I recently had the pleasure and privilege of being interviewed by Paul Meyers of Clark Communications where we talked about staying connected and how to overcome some of these issues.
Stay Apart but Stay Connected

Stay Apart but Stay Connected

As I listen to managers of remote teams from across the country, the one consistent challenge is finding the right way to engage everyone. We aren’t passing each other in the workplace, gathering around boardroom tables, lunch room tables or the water cooler during these days because we’re physical distancing and many are #workingfromhome. So how do we stay connected to the goals of the organization, as a remote team?
