One of the most amazing things that I have observed, time and again, in our transformational team building programs - is how easily some people give away ownership for their lives. In so doing they destroy themselves, their relationships and groups that they belong to.

Being new to this site I was wondering what people on this site are looking for. I'm aware that trainers/facilitators/managers are extremely busy, so you're not just on here to kill some time...
So what problem would you like to have solved today, tomorrow, next week?

Are you looking for training resources, questionnaires, tools, cartoon pics, more time, better facilitators, a training venue, etc.?

What is your biggest need today?

This article at my collegesandcareers.com makes the connection that the majority of parents who are working full or part-time are the same parents who are living below the poverty level. The article places online education as quite a good way for both parents and their children to get cheaper and more accessible education.

I have learnt to work very hard in the things I'm passionate about. As I do, they become fun and no more hard work because of pursuit of passion and I truly enjoy what I do as the life I live and I hope you too will - the joy of life is in realizing passionate things you pursued.

In these challeging times that the world economy faces, it places additional pressure on companies to create motivating environments within the organisation. It becomes a huge management task to maintain the motivational level as they are faced with retrenchments, redundancy, etc...

It seems as if the money or organisation is spending on mass media is just not earning the same return on investment as our one-on-one efforts which yield far greater (and long term) results. It is becoming more difficult to cut through the clutter where everyone is clammering to be seen and heard but when you engage in a scheduled meeting where you get to sell yourself only, your adience is much more receptive. Just a lot slower! Any suggestions?

In my dealings over the years with blue-collar employees there has been the persistent theme of the outstretched hand. In my current employment I am the Compensation and Benefits Manager for a beverage company and we have several staff who require anti-retrovirals and insist on attending a clinic in Nelspruit for their care. The cost is about R1200 for 4 employees to travel there and they have historically been given the use of a car and money for toll roads and their medication. They even stayed overnight on their first trip and the company paid for their accomodation and meals.

Will the new government order address this effectively? The water position is dire; micro biological contamination of virtually all our rivers and dams is evident. Sewage pollution direct into rivers by municipalities is rife.

There was a most important job that needed to be done,
And no reason not to do it, there was absolutely none.
But in vital matters such as this, the thing you have to ask

That this was something somebody would surely have to do.
Nobody was unwilling; anybody had the ability.
But nobody believed that it was their responsibility.

This took my breath away enjoy dear friends!!!!!!

Well another election has passed and despite the apprehension which each of us felt, we can again be proud of the peaceful and successful way in which the process was carried out. Now it’s time to get stuck in and give the new leaders our support. Mark Berger conveys most of our feelings in the light hearted poem below.

A POEM FOR JZ

O JZ dear JZ
Our new leader you are
From humble beginnings
You've really come far.
