Main idea: yesterday’s skills and projects become our “old pictures hanging on the wall” of today. Memories of days gone by. Today is the day to consider if you are living off the past. It may be time for an upgrade.

Ray, did you notice we had a storm this week? Not only did we get snow, we got wind…lots of wind; blizzard-like wind. Wind is important. Remember hearing about Biosphere 2 back in the early 90’s? It was a self-contained ecosystem. Interesting observation with the trees they grew; while they grew faster than their counterparts outside, they were not as robust in strength and roots and tended to fall under their own weight. Why? No wind. Be back after weather and sports as we explore the importance of wind in our lives here at WTIC your coaching connection.
Dr. Annette and I just led a workshop with senior management on becoming a Conflict Competent Team. Good group of people, all very experienced, but conflict…dealing with differences…was keeping them from solving problems and this was slowing down critical tasks. It became very apparent to me in the workshop that a group’s ability to deal with conflict is a critical skill set. Want to be more effective at work; in your family? Be here after weather and sports as we explore “The curse of conflict,” right here at WTIC your Coaching Connection.

2017 is off and running and the scramble has begun. As 2016 reached fever pitch I got so tired of negative talk I was tuning out.

Having been in the world of organizational development for my career, this is a bad foundation for change. Today we look at the work of David Cooperrider and Appreciative Inquiry.

Make yourself indispensible at work and home by improving the quality of your thinking. Give yourself an edge by becoming a critical thinker.
