    "You get what you focus on."  -Vannoy & Ross As a leader it is important to know what talents you possess, that you bring to the leadership table.  Do you know what strengths you possess?  Every leader possesses her/his own unique set of talents.  According to the Gallup Organization, "we spend too much time focusing on our weaknesses, trying to make them stronger rather than recognizing our strengths."  When you focus on your weaknesses, you miss out on utilizing what you do best for your organization.

    “Knowing what's right doesn't mean much unless you do what's right.” -Theodore Roosevelt   Bullying in the workplace has become a common practice over the past ten years.  Bullying takes many forms. If you feel as if you are being bullied, there is a good possibility that your instincts are correct. According to the Workplace Bullying Institute, a 2017 survey found that 19% of Americans have suffered abusive conduct at work; another 19% have witnessed it; 63% are aware that workplace bullying happens.

    There are many choices to be made in the workplace. The workplace can be a breeding ground for conflict due to different personality and communication styles. We can choose to ignore or accelerate conflict with others, or we can choose to allow conflict to make the positive changes within our organization. On the other hand, we can choose to work collaboratively, or cooperatively together to further the goals of our organization. It's a choice we make, so what will it be today?
