Some Fun Things Related to 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace

Friends, I thought I would just give you a brief update on issues regarding my book, the 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace, with Dr. Gary Chapman, and “happenings” on our website.

Too Much Information — Tips for Managing Information Overload

“TMI”  (“too much information”) is a message teens and young adults sometimes send to their peers — or even their parents.  But usually it is used in the context of  “that is more personal or detailed information about that situation than I ever wanted to know.” As is becoming more and more obvious, however, “too much information” is an issue

Understanding the Allure of Fireworks (from a recovering fireworks addict)

I thought I would write  a piece that would attempt to help those thousands of wives and mothers who don’t understand why their husbands and sons (and sons-in-law) spend perfectly good money to blow up things and possibly set some part of the neighborhood on fire. And I use the terms “wives/mothers” and “husbands/sons” purposefully, because this does appear to

Revisiting the Meaning of “Vacation”

This past week I had the privilege of taking a short vacation to the mountains in Colorado with my wife.  We had a delightful time (just the two of us, our four kids are ‘out and about’.)  We were in awe of the majesty of the mountains; we couldn’t believe how many trees there were (alive and dead); and we

Damaged Personal Relationships Cost Businesses Money

Businesses are primarily focused on selling their products or services to customers and making the profit (or creating value in the business to be captured when the business sells).  That is the essence of business.  And that can be done in lots of ways — by treating your employees well or “using” them,  by providing quality products or by scamming

The beginning of summer Going to the lake Having a barbeque with friends and family Having to get together with family The Indianapolis 500 Visiting family gravesites Veterans parades and celebrations Watching old war flicks For me, especially when

Am I Making the Right Choices? Using Life Transition Events to Reevaluate Your Life

Life is daily.  And sometimes it is hard to see if the choices you are making on a daily basis are leading to the results you desire in your life. During the late spring and early summer, we have some opportunities to stop and reconsider:  “Am I living life the way I want to?”  “Do my daily and weekly activities

The Attitude of Learning — Demonstrated by a 70 year old World Leader

Wow.  There are some life experiences that almost take your breath away.  I’m not talking about riding a rollercoaster, or seeing an outstanding artistic performance.  But a quieter experience, that upon reflection, has a deep impact on you.  This week I had one of those. I had the privilege of going to New York City to help facilitate a discussion
