What Were Your New Year's Resolutions?
There's still time to settle those conflicts.

Many of us commit to starting off the year the right way with wonderful new years resolutions.

75% of people last one week after making new years resolutions. 40% last six months and only 19% last past a year.
Here are some of the personal excuses:
I can't afford the gym
I have children
I do not have time to eat healthy
I'm busy with work
I'm just too tired
 fat people

Work excuses:
No time  for training
Retreats are too costly
Wishing and hoping the conflict will go away
Ignoring the conflict
Assuming the team will finally come together
Improved well being, healthier, exercising, getting more rest or finding time to help the children with homework, are not going to just happen.
Problems and conflicts in the workplace won't just go away either.  They escalate and can be very costly:
Stress, frustration, and anxiety
Loss of sleep
Strained relationships
Workplace violence/bullying
Grievances and litigation
Employee turnover
Loss of productivity/wasted time
Increased customer/client complaints
Injury/ Accidents
Disability claims
Sick leave

Unresolved conflict represents the largest reducible cost in many businesses, yet it remains largely unrecognized. 
Dan Dana, 'The Conflict Doctor'
Whether it's your children, a personal health goal or workplace conflict, there is still time this year to get on top of those concerns.   Meet with your support system or leadership team. The fall is the season for revisiting goals and getting back on it ...before the hoildays...

     Characteristics of Adult Bully Targets

By Resa Witt


Adult bullies target their victims in many of the same way children who bully do. While many people think that bullying only occurs amongst children, it can also happen in the workplace among adults. No matter what the age of a bully, they are opportunistic and tend to prey on people they perceive as a threat or that they dislike because of differences. Adult bullies almost always bully others continuously and when one target leaves, quickly pick another. The following traits are common in adult bullying victims and usually make the bully feel insecure or threatened. Adult bullying can be more of a challenge to handle because it is harder to recognize and not as widely accepted as the bullying that occurs with children.
