From my friend and colleague:

"There are as many ways to recognize people as there are people to recognize." -Eric Harvey When we do employeee survey work, "Recognition" is often the most neglected dimension by managers. For recognition to be appreciated, it must be timely and perceived as an earnest expression from a caring colleague. Get to know your coworkers as humans beings and understand how they prefer to be acknowledged, recognized and rewarded. Then catch them "doing things right" and do the needful with enthusiasm.

Post from a colleague

A colleague mine posted this on LinkedIn and I wanted to share here ... An essential tenet of effective teaching and mentoring is having high expectations for your students. As John C. Maxwell put it "People go farther than they thought they could when someone else thinks they can."

Leadership is .....

Taking time for oneself, one's family and one's faith. Leadership involves balancing the many "pulls" in one's life and enjoying all of the gifts that life has to offer. Each day is a gift - take care to not take for granted!!
