Managing Workplace Emotions
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.

On the move again.

I'm off again. Back down the road through British Columbia to Lilooet, then north. The final destination is a mountain hut called Eldorado. We fly in Sunday morning. OK think positively. The Avalanche forecast is looking challenging. Clive and I are off with 5 other intrepid skiers from the Alpine Club so I doubt they will sit in the hut and look at the slopes. Marg Rees is a super competent skier so I am sure we will make safe decisions.

So now I have to pack the food and my gear. Never a very pleasant task. No internet or yoga lounge or coffee's with the gals for a whole week. I will appreciate them all the more when I return hopefully refreshed, rejuvenated and with some great photos.
