Good afternoon  ,

Thankfully, the political fray is far away and not much visible in our quiet life in rural Argentina. It's one of the big reasons I live here.

Most of my life I've paid attention to politics and politicians. Reflecting on what I've seen, It seems to me that mostly the only people who benefit from political activity are politicians and their cronies. 

So I've decided to stop paying much attention to the antics of politicians. Good circus sometimes! The outcome seldom matters much to me, as I don't care to be a politician or a politician's crony. Whoever's sitting in the big chair, I expect the process to cost me liberty, money, or both. I'd rather avoid the effects of it  as much as possible. I seem to have found a corner of the world where I accomplish that fairly well. (Note: If you're interested in more thoughts on politicians' effect on liberty, here's my friend Bill Bonner, who just happened to weigh in as I was writing this, and who's been studying these matters for about 40 years.)

With that frame of mind I was a bit jolted by the email I got this week from David Finkel, CEO of Maui Mastermind. David and his company offer great advice and support to people trying to learn how to navigate a world which. it seems to me, more and more demands entrepreneurial thinking.

Here are David's suggestions for how leaders can help their employees and their businesses through these stressful-for-some times. It's happening again, as usual during times of high political activity - i n the run-up to this year's elections, people develop strong opinions and love to argue about who they should vote for to improve their lives. This can distract them from whatever important work enriches their lives and puts food on their table.

Especially in recent years, as incivility has become more common, many people seem to enjoy hot arguments about things they can do little about. During election time this can become a particular concern. David has some good ideas about how business leaders can strike a balance between these tendencies and keeping the company's wheels turning.

Having mostly divorced myself from this mess, I'll refrain from further comment and leave you to enjoy David's suggestions.

Have a great week. If it matters to you, I hope your favorite politician wins his or her election.

About John

Throughout a career spanning over 45 years my management style has been one of building teams to bring several competent people together to focus on a common objective. I noted early in my career that, in most organizations, there is an enormous amount of time, energy, and effort wasted by people working at cross purposes.

As I transition to life in the Argentine outback, my focus shifts from coaching to helping other business coaches and advisers get their message out to their prospective clients. With my first-hand knowledge of the benefits of effective business coaching, I am uniquely qualified to work with business advisers of all stripes convey their message.
