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.

Our Extraordinary Backyard.

It was one of those days when the cold prarie cloud filled the Bow Valley. We took a chance and drove west and up the Icefields Parkway where the sun shone between the cloud. The scenery, so dazzling, it took by breath away. Well maybe that was because we were panting up hill! Still the downhill turns were almost perfect. A little touch of sun crust here and there but the scenery made up for the few imperfections of the snow.

Me making the uptrack. Everyone complains they are too steep!!
Well they are up hills what do they expect!

TURNS! It doesn't look so steep on the way down.

Big Country

Clive in his element. He loves these mountains.

Looking across the valley to Cirque peak and part of the
Dolomite Circuit where we were last week.
