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.

Visiting with Kumu, Shona and Andrew

Looking across to the Coast Mountains from Blackholm.

Nice signs on the tourist walk. Sure won't get lost!

Nice Whistler weather at the top of the gondola.

Happy father and daughter mountain bike team.

Oops - we nearly forgot to take a picture of our intrepid travellers and their
trusty van Kumu. With 10,000 kms under the belt since mid July all three
Shona, Andrew and Kumu are more than ready for the next stretch,
A few weeks in the US of A, peacefully through Mexico, on to central
America and eventually Southern Argentina. These guys don't think small.
Good luch and god-speed.
Clive and I head back to Alberta. A quick stop at Nairn Falls to centre
ourselves in the natural world.

A reminder of the beauties of fall and the cyclical nature
of live, that seems to be rushing past all too fast.

Fall at Healy Pass, the Rockies

The top of Wa Wa - Sunshine Village

Clive surrounded by golden larches

Monarch Ramparts

Mule Deer

Is this the heart of the Rockies with these lakes all arranged in a star -
It must mean something! Or it is just plain beautiful.
