Can A Woman Be A Great Leader Of Men?

What Does The Future Hold For Our Aimless Youth?


Generation “Y” has a fundamental belief that they should never settle for second best. They want to start at the top of the pay scale and they believe they should have everything their parents have, almost immediately after they leave home. Because of their liberal and generous upbringings, many young folks make it all the way to high school graduation without ever contemplating the fact that they will ultimately be singularly responsible for their own lives. Imagine the horror of leaving the nest without a mature, functional pair of wings!

Ten Ways To Make Your Employees Adore You

They have an ability to garner respect, admiration, reverence, and generally high regard wherever they go. Those are the elements of adoration that we will be dealing with in this article. No … Continue reading

It Takes A Hurricane


While watching the drama of Hurricane Irene unfold as she made her way up the east coast of North America, I was impressed by the good humour, co-operation, camaraderie, and overall humanity of the folks who reside in the path of the storm front.

How To Deal With Water Cooler Talk


 Water cooler talks are those nasty, backstabbing, grumble sessions that employees like to have from time to time at work. During those discussions negativity takes the lead and gossip rules the day.

Who Needs Wisdom?


This is my favourite definition of wisdom: “Good sense; the ability to make sensible decisions and judgments based on personal knowledge and experience.”   Note that good sense requires personal knowledge and experience in order to be effective. Wisdom cannot grow and flourish in isolation. When one operates with poor or potentially harmful personal knowledge or … Continue reading

Positive Passion Leads To Success


  “Genuine leaders never pursue or expect adulation or “star” status. When they receive it, they accept it graciously and move on to the next challenge. Leadership is not about personal victory. It is about winning through teamwork and positive energy by and for every member of the team.”                         ∞Wayne Kehl∞ My book, “A … Continue reading

Pessimism Is The Enemy Of Ambition And The Killer of Dreams


Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.   – Helen Keller Helen Keller lived from 1880 to 1968…an incredible 88 years.

Think Before You Speak!


Wise men talk because they have something to say… fools, because they have to say something.  – Plato  Plato lived from 428 BC to 348 BC and even then, one of the largest human problems that philosophers of the day grappled with was a lack of open, honest communication. Nothing has changed in over two … Continue reading

Anger is a killer but happiness can save your life!


I am pleased to report that people with high levels of happiness tend to catch colds and influenza less often and present less significant symptoms, (than angry or depressed people) when they do get sick. Happy people generally have lower levels of stress hormones in their blood stream and lower blood pressure. Interestingly, recent studies have shown that listening to pleasing music can improve blood vessel and heart health…probably because it releases relaxing endorphins into the blood stream

A Big Ego is a Terrible Thing to Waste!


People with strong egos like a pat on the back. They need to be acknowledged for their good work. The feeling of satisfaction they derive from praise is like a drug to them…the more they get…the more they want. The more praise they receive, the more likely it is that they will perform at exponentially higher levels. However, if people with big egos are ignored or criticized for their work, they will no longer derive a sense of satisfaction from their work and performance will probably decrease in quality and quantity.

Getting Along With People Is Easy


 “Getting Along With People Is Easy” As I kneeled to thin out the dead stalks in the rose bushes near my back gate today, I felt a twinge in my back. As I stood up to shake off the twinge, I felt a pain in my right thigh and stiffness in both knees. At that moment, … Continue reading
