It’s All About Me

May 12th, 2017 by Gary Crow


I assume that you like me sometimes need to deal with people who drive you up the wall. When having to interact with them, the frustration factor is at the center of your world. Life for you is at least tedious and at worst stressing you enough to make you think about finding a place to hide where you never have to deal with people again.


The reality is that the people who drive you up the wall are not going away. They and you are here to stay. The good news is that you don’t have to let them continue to drive you up the wall. They can be brought into line and you are just the person who can handle them.


Let me share a few examples along with some strategies and techniques you can use to put a stop to the attitudes and behavior that are driving you up the wall. Please listen to the Audio Tidbits Podcast to get the full scoop on I Players.

Adaptive Leadership (007)

April 23rd, 2017 by Gary Crow


My father used to tell me that he never learned anything while he was talking. Yes, listen and learn was his technique for adding what others know to what he knows. At the end of the day, this was the best if not the only way to get smarter. This included seeing things from the point of view of other people and never assuming that his perspective was complete or even the best view point. This and other adaptive leadership tips are here for you in this episode of Audio Tidbits in the leadership category. As Dad liked to say, listen and learn.
