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.

Conflict Resolution for the Workplace
Successful conflict resolvers are not born; they are trained. Build your skills as an effective conflict resolver and mediator. Learn to recognize conflict patterns and what triggers and escalates conflict in others, master strategies that reduce conflict escalation, assert yourself confidently and give constructive feedback. These skills will help you work more productively and harmoniously with clients, colleagues and superiors. See Course Outline.

My story straw to gold
We live our life forwards, yet read it backwards. Discover the unique story that your life makes as you reflect on where your desires, struggles, and insights have taken you. Learn to use free-fall writing, guided meditation, and discussion to put your conflicts into a bigger picture and see yourself as the hero/heroine in your own wandering journey even as it is happening. No previous writing experience is necessary.

Winter IS here.

It is a bright sunny day here in Alberta. I wondered what had happened to all the alcohol in the thermometer. Was there a leak? This morning it read minus thirty but my mid afternoon it has risen to a balmy minus twenty. We are under the spell of an Artic High. In fact it is the second coldest place on the planet, second to Antartica! I'll strike it off my bucket list. In Safeway's everyone is dressed up as if they are on an Everest Expedition, puffy jackets, hats, thick snow pants, and a variety of sheepskin boots. We all look like michelin men! Thank God for fleece, central heating and other modern inventions.

A great opportunity to hide inside and catch up on my writing! Except that the muse never seems to want to cooperate with me. Still I have been fueling the fires of my creative inspiration re-reading my wise thoughts and at least putting a few words together on my blog.

It may be cold outside but it is majestic.
