Finding the Flow – Effective Communication

Laura Novakowski  -  May 04, 2016  -   -  Comments Off on Finding the Flow – Effective Communication

Sometimes momentum carries a team along like a fast moving river.

Unpredictable employer behavior can wreak havoc on employees. Decisions are most successful when based reliable on data and clear expectations. Capable employees who know “their stuff” can be made crazy by bosses who shift positions, attitudes and goals on a regular basis.  It is a like a fastball hitter trying to connect with a knuckle-ball.  […]

The Culture You Want or the Culture You Get

Laura Novakowski  -  Apr 06, 2016  -  ,  -  Comments Off on The Culture You Want or the Culture You Get

As we have stated before, you can have the culture you want or the culture you get.  There is intention and there is lack of intent.
