Why Are All These Employees So Happy?

I recently returned from a trip abroad to Spain. Part of the trip included a five-night stay in Mallorca, an island off the Mediterranean coast. The resort I stayed at was nestled into the mountains, overlooking the sea. While the vistas were breathtaking, I was (almost) as struck by the people who worked there. They all [...]

Dale Carnegie Training recently released the results of a new study on employee engagement. The findings might surprise you. Even if employees are passionate about what they do, they won't be engaged in their workplace unless they trust senior management and feel a bond with their immediate supervisor. If either of those two factors are [...]

First Impressions and Respect

A couple of weeks ago I dropped my 9 year old off for overnight camp for the first time. The drop off spot (where the kids hopped on a bus to take them to camp) was filled with counselors, counselors-in-training, camp administrators, and lots of volunteers. Oh yeah, and a few hundred kids and their [...]

Respect Tip: Be a Role Model

By |2016-06-15T10:12:09-04:00April 24th, 2012|Categories: Respect Tips|Tags: , |

Early in my career I made a conscious decision to not be like some of my least favorite bosses. I called them my anti-role models and secretly never wanted to turn into them. You know the type. Maybe they are micro-managers or they have minimal leadership abilities, but mostly they are people who treat everyone [...]

Employee Engagement + Respect = A Respectful Workplace

Last month someone tipped me off to a blog post on the importance of employee engagement and respect in the workplace written by Paul Marciano. I am not sure how I missed this excellent post or the book he also wrote entitled Carrots and Sticks Don't Work: Build a Culture of Employee Engagement with the [...]

Checklist for an Emotional Hijacking

My favorite part of Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence, is Appendix B that outlines the “Hallmarks of an Emotional Mind.” If you’ve had a reaction and wonder if your emotions have “hijacked” you, look to see if your reactions fit this list: 1. A quick but sloppy response: an accurate perception is sacrificed for speed. Speed [...]

Respect is Better than Tolerance

By |2019-06-19T16:57:57-04:00January 7th, 2009|Categories: Respectful Workplace|Tags: , , |

Too often I hear people talking about respect with tolerance as if they were the same thing. If you think about it, they are actually quite different. As a positive way to start to the year, US News and World Report recently featured an article on 50 Ways to Improve Your Life in 2009. Coming [...]

As the economic downturn looms over the upcoming holiday season, companies are coming up with ever-more creative ways to thank their employees. Even if your budget can no longer afford to give hefty bonus checks or throw lavish parties, it's still better to show at least some appreciation for a year of your employees’ hard [...]

New Brain Research Provides a Wealth of Insights for Leaders and Managers

By |2017-01-13T13:42:28-05:00November 6th, 2008|Categories: Respectful Workplace|Tags: , , |

I have long considered myself a student of brain sciences. I am fascinated by how we store information and learn, how emotion plays a role in imprinting and decision making, why behavior change is so difficult …anything that might eventually permit me a greater degree of mastery over that big, grey walnut-shaped mass between my [...]
