Re- Thinking Conflict

Conflict -- what does that word signify for you? Do you dread it and shutdown or do you embrace it?

I've observed across 17 industries that unmet expectations create conflict as does different business realities.

How many of us really express our expectations? More often than not we expect people to read our minds. Big mistake. So next time you have conflict, ask yourself, "Did I explicitly express my expectations? Did they?"

With those 2 questions, you can perhaps look at the conflict as simply mis-communications and clear the air.

What's Your Motto?

Wherever you are, I hope you are smiling.

Some mottos bring smiles, others not so happy.

One of my mottos is "We are out choices." At times it brings a huge smile to my face and other times I go, "yikes." "There are no failures, only learnings" helps me maintian hope and faith, to keep risking.

I was inspired today by my nephew, Allen Castro, who is running the race for County Clerk in San Antonio. No matter what is happening during the campaign, he affirms, "It's all good." And because of that he is resilient in the face of politics.

Does your motto encourage resiliency or discouragement?

The choice is yours. Every choice counts!
