What do you do to best evaluate solutions for problems that come up on a daily basis? How do you approach these differently than those around you? Regardless of who you are or what roles you may play, we all have problems that happen in our lives. Just because we all have roadblocks that derail us, that does not mean that we all overcome them in the same way.

How often do you take time to reflect on your life? Now that we are halfway through the year, it might be beneficial for you to look at those goals or projects you were looking to accomplish.

44. Do You Have a Best Friend at Work?

How would you describe the connections you have with those around you at work? Do you have someone at work that you would consider to be your best friend? We spend so much of our time at work, so why shouldn’t we focus on building connections with others and have people we can trust? This can be somewhat of a controversial topic since it is sometimes hard to take time in the workplace for relationship building. I like to counter that hesitation because in each workplace it is beneficial to...

42. Engaged in the Fit

In visiting with many of my clients these past few weeks, engagement and disengagement keeps coming up. Is it realistic to find the right fit for me to be engaged in my work or is that unrealistic? I always ask people if they are not engaged to do they know why? Do you look forward to getting to work every day and working with the people around you? Do you love your manager and your company? We currently live in a very busy society that keeps moving forward and when we aren’t feeling...


41. Expanding vs. Contracting

Are you walking through life and in tune with how you are feeling every day about your daily actions? Sometimes we get used to moving each day and we forget to see how we are feeling about what we are doing or who we are with. In my time working with organizations, I have found that during difficult moments in an office environment, many people “contract” and tighten up. We have a hard time stepping back and recognizing when we are in the flow or when we are tightening up or contracting....
