You can't change conflict and opposing points of view in the workplace. You can, however, change the way you react. Become more emotionally aware, harness your emotions and express them positively with control, confidence and composure.

True colours

Well not much action for Shona yet. Hopefully she had a training run today and will race the downhill on Wednesday and the supercombined on Thursday.

Meanwhile here in Vancouver Canadian show their true colours. The streets are jammed with Canadians wearing Canadian flags, hats, scarfs, sweatshirts. There is a totally different feel than Torino with lots of free entertainment in plaza's and squares around the city. Today in Canada House in The Bay, a place for friends and family of the athletes, we sat across from Mr Chretian and his wife and watched as he was fitted for an Olympic Jacket.

Yesterday at the Victory Ceremony in BC place I saw an old ski racing mom Marlie Burtt and her daughters! A small world!

And tonight we head back to BC Place to see Bilodeaux get his gold medal. This will be a historic moment.

Funnily today I chose to wear a turquoise sweater and felt I was unpatriotic! So I am about to change put on my true colours and go paint the town red with parents of Olympic parents, and cheer the Bilodeaux and their extraordinary Canadian Family. Go Canada Go.
