When most of us go to work, we live in two places at the same time. One is the brick and mortar building where we find offices, information, and work processes. The other is the realm of people, relationships, and conversation.
One is a structure; the other is social.
This is a really helpful way to think about presentations.For that matter, it's a pretty good way to think about all of your interactions. If you want your information to be absorbed and accepted, you have to develop a relationship with the people who are with you.
So, what exactly is bullying? According to the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI), Workplace Bullying is repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators that takes one or more of the following forms:
-Verbal abuse -Offensive conduct/behaviors (including nonverbal) which are threatening, humiliating, or intimidating -Work interference — sabotage — which prevents work from getting done
How to Spot It:
Most likely, you won’t catch the bully right-handed, screaming at the target. But watch out for some more subtle clues, for example:
-Nonverbal bully behavior in meetings (interrupting, sarcasm, rolling eyes etc.) -An employee being cut-off from communication (not included in email-lists, meeting invitations etc.) -Signs of fear and intimidation by the potential target, lower work performance and frequent absences
The keystone of the “strenuous life” is the possibility—and necessity—of choice.
What is a leader’s greatest legacy?
With the passage of time, even the greatest accomplishments can be forgotten or overtaken by subsequent events. What one generation reveres, another overlooks—or takes for granted.
Theodore Roosevelt was an individual of extraordinary, historic accomplishment. The construction of the Panama Canal, which linked the Atlantic and pacific, ensured America’s strategic significance in the 20th century and beyond. The protection of millions of acres of lands from ill-conceived development arose directly from his actions. And much more….
And yet, Roosevelt’s legacy is something larger, yet, perhaps more intimate in its reach. As TR often said of others, we ultimately revere people not for what they’ve done, but for what they are.
This is surely true of TR. His living legacy is his notion of the “strenuous life.” It was the foundation on which his life–and leadership–was painstakingly built.
Reading alound "informational" non-fiction books supports vocabulary, expands horozons, helps students acquire content knowledge, exposes students to dense and abstract language, and helps students better understand narratives...even young children.
Lessons from the past frame the future. Beginning in the fall every year my coaching mentor, Randy Mills, took a group and turned them into a team well before the spring lacrosse season actually began.
Facebook isn't a chair or a cake, as the company has suggested in recent ads, but rather a credit card with similar drawbacks and incentives for users.
Facebook has become a kind of currency for the digital world, not unlike credit cards. A growing number of websites and apps require a Facebook account to use –- or at least to get — the full experience. And just as not having a credit history may hurt your chances when being considered for big purchases like a house or car, not having a Facebook profile may raise red flags when being evaluated by new acquaintances, potential roommates or even recruiters for jobs.
Facebook isn’t a chair or a cake — as the company has suggested in its first-ever advertising campaign — it’s a credit card. That may not have quite the same positive ring to it, but it’s arguably a better message to send investors as it speaks to the strength of the company’s business model in the long run. The bigger the downside to leaving Facebook, the less likely it is to suffer the same fate as MySpace — even if it takes away its users’ voting rights or starts to bombard users with ads.

"Don't get in the way of your own learning. Here are five ways to step aside and continue to increase your smarts."
Most people don't really think much about how they learn. Generally you assume learning comes naturally. You listen to someone speak either in conversation or in a lecture and you simply absorb what they are saying, right? Not really. In fact, I find as I get older that real learning takes more work. The more I fill my brain with facts, figures, and experience, the less room I have for new ideas and new thoughts. Plus, now I have all sorts of opinions that may refute the ideas being pushed at me. Like many people I consider myself a lifelong learner, but more and more I have to work hard to stay open minded.
But the need for learning never ends, so your desire to do so should always outweigh your desire to be right. The world is changing and new ideas pop up everyday; incorporating them into your life will keep you engaged and relevant. The following are the methods I use to stay open and impressionable. They'll work for you too. No matter how old you get.
Leaders need to think about failure as a process we go through rather than an event to avoid at all costs.
I crashed my car recently. It was about 8 a.m. I was in a rush (what else is new?) to get to a meeting for a nonprofit I belong to. I learned how to drive in Thailand, so I’m rather proud of my driving reflexes — even pride myself on holding my own with the cab drivers in New York City. The car in front of me stopped. Unfortunately I didn’t.
The good news is that I emerged totally functional (or at least no more dysfunctional than usual). The other piece of good news is that the experience taught me some lessons on how to fail well. It taught me that we need to think about failure as a process we go through rather than an event to avoid at all costs.
