VLOG - What is Emotional Intelligence?
Like many of us, I find myself spending weekends getting the house ready for Calgary’s two weeks of summer. This year I have had two pesky robins show up who lay claim to a prime piece of real estate on our deck. Usually, I’m happy to share the land with them, however, not this land. I have done everything imaginable to try and deter them, to no avail.

There is a video making the rounds on social media with Simon Sinek and his perspective on the Millennial generation. Sinek does a great job of unpacking the four major influences on this group and offers some practical advice to corporations on how to support them. Overall I agree with all he had to say, except one thing. Where he places the responsibility.
Traction vs Distraction
Most of the leaders we work with are impatient for results. In most cases this is not a bad thing, they bring energy, they drive processes forward and the good ones do it in a fun and inspiring manner.

We have all found ourselves losing traction in regard to important, though most often non urgent projects. This brief tip may give you permission to drift away from your plan on occasion.

So, why would I have a beef with this noble, and frankly, right idea, the fact is my own father used to repeat this phrase to me growing up.
