Helping People Turn Potential Into Profit for More Than 30 Years 


December 2013
Here is your complementary copy of this month's edition of "ON PURPOSE"!



Well, another Thanksgiving is in the bag... so to speak... and our thoughts turn to closing out the year with preparations for the Christmas season. Is it just me, or didn't we do this all just yesterday?


This month we decided to include a couple additional articles related to attitudes in two important areas, motivation and communication, that we constantly run up against deficiencies with in organizations. With all that has been written on the subjects over recent decades, you would think that everyone would be experts!


This edition of On Purpose focuses on the habits-of-thought that are at the root of whether you become an expert or not.

If we haven't had the opportunity to work together yet, I am excited about the potential to develop a long and mutually beneficial relationship in the near future!

Attitude Motivation 


Today's workforce is usually well above the sustenance level of food, clothing, and shelter that occupy the lower levels of Maslow's Hierarchy of human motivation.



What's Your Communication Attitude?


"What we have here is a failure to communicate."

Why has that famous line from Cool Hand Luke become such a popular cultural catch phrase? Probably because it so aptly describes one of our most common frustrations - miscommunication!
