Hours of meetings, research, and effort ONLY to find out it was the WRONG problem. I remember this happening with a client a number of years ago when I delivered training on employee engagement. The goal of the training was to “empower employees to work together better by building trust with each other”. Great! I
As a communication expert, I read, study, and research human behavior. It pushes me to regularly reflect on my own behavior, and today I seem to be reflecting … and reflecting … and reflecting. I am reflecting to the point that I am not really making progress. My. Brain. Does. Not. Want. To. Work. Today.
I’ve been looking forward to this week’s G Factor for several weeks – GENEROSITY: show kindness and concern. Crises, like a pandemic, often bring out the best in people.

Research also shows that it benefits you when you do it as much as it benefits the receiver. GRATITUDE G Factor. Show appreciation.
Last week, I wrote about the exhaustion and powerlessness many people are feeling. I suggested ways to use Gather and Good-humored G Factor to help. I hope it helped. If you missed it, you can find it here. This week, I’d like to help you with only one G Factor - Grant. What I love
