Health, Leadership & Motivation

“Other people work at dying, I work at living!” This is a quote by fitness guru and pitchman extraordinaire Jack LaLanne. He was born to French immigrants almost a century ago. During his life he lifted himself up, but more importantly, he lifted others up. Mr. LaLanne was an inspiration for people to get in shape, stay in shape, and think positively. He also holds the honor of hosting the longest running fitness show on television (34 years!). Earlier today Mr. LaLanne passed away at the ripe old age of 96. He was once quoted as saying: “I can’t die. It’ll ruin my image.” Well, consider your image intact Jack. Your inspiration will be carried on by the many millions you touched during your meaningful life.

Collaboration Challenges

Many leaders and teams face collaboration challenges in their workplace. Sometimes it is due to personality conflicts. Sometimes is it due to turf wars created by the structure of a matrix organization. Whatever the apparent reason for workplace challenges, sometimes the real cause of a disconnect between leaders and/or teams is a low level of trust. Building or mending trust is difficult. It calls for a process that is tough on the issues, while being easy on the people. A process to consider is called working agreements. Along its journey, the participants gain tools and techniques that call for an increase in communication and an elevation of integrity in the workplace. Amazing things can happen when people communicate more and stay in integrity – trust takes an upward flight.
