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.

A Short Walk in the Scottish Hills

Fred, Alison and Tony enjoy slogging up all sizes of hills.

Black faced sheep the true owners of the Scottish Hills
That's Ben Alder in the background. I climbed that when
I was 18 and met my Clive that weekend oh so many
years ago as we sang:
"Will you still need me,
Will you still feed me,
When I'm 64...."

Our second summit was like walking around inside a kettle.
Still Fred, Alison and I seem to like the damp rain on our faces.

After the damp hills I encouraged the others to become
tourists and walk up the falls of Bruar.
We only saw 2 other people. All the other tourists
were trapped in the extensive shopping mall
at the entrance. It should have a sign saying
"Tourist Beware - don't you know there is
a big recession on. Ha Ha"

The wild life back at the car.
