Real Leaders

Life is too short to work with jerks. Never hire one, don't enable one, or become one.

A real leader has a growth mindset and projects it on their teams... leverages group diversity providing safe environments where all feel comfortable... creates clarity and energizes their groups. The formula is as easy as 1-2-3.

1/ A Google Search finds that managers who have a growth mindset are eager to learn, challenge themselves, experiment, and it eventually boosts their performance.

Macho or Mean?

Submitted by ub on Sat, 12/14/2019 - 14:49

Machismo is the sense of being manly and self-reliant, the concept associated with a strong feeling of exaggerated masculine pride. It is associated with a man's responsibility to provide for, protect, and defend his family. The word macho has a long history in Spanish and Portuguese languages.

A real man is not supposed to talk a lot or be afraid. Who talks all the time and is scared of everything, including stairs, sharks, rain...etc. POTUS and GOP are not the saviors of masculinity. They are a parody of it.

Fateful Friday The Thirteenth

Submitted by ub on Fri, 12/13/2019 - 09:10

Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day in Western superstition. A suggested origin of the superstition. Friday, 13 October 1307, the date Philip IV of France arrested hundreds of the Knights Templar may not have been formulated until the 20th century.

The Democrats held their impeachment inquiry vote on Halloween, and their articles of impeachment vote on Friday the 13th, thereby using POTUS demonic nature to defeat him.

The real value of propaganda cannot be determined by esthetic standards but by results. Propaganda is a means to an end and if that end is attained, the means are good. Whether they satisfy truthful requirements is immaterial.

As a former government manager dealing with multilingual media content and foreign policy propaganda, I know that many who lie then try to use their misinformation to affirm and justify.

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas, just like ones we used to know?

This is America's opportunity to hold POTUS accountable to serve and protect the US Constitution. This has escalated by blaming him for the most direct sustained assault on democracy in US history.

POTUS abused his power, obstructed Congress and attacked anyone and everyone but PUTIN. The GOP can pound the table like Khrushchev but this does not change the facts that TRUMP will the 3rd US President in history to be Impeached.

This is not just about teenager Greta Thunberg, it is about the expansion of young people’s anger which is erupting all across the world.

She is the youngest person to be named Person of the Year. Greta achieved notoriety armed with hope and resilience. Unfortunately, it is somewhat of a foreign language to those who still don’t get it.

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg was named TIME’s youngest “Person of the Year"

Regardless of whether you’re lugging this year’s Christmas tree home from a nearby farm, or your neighborhood non-profit organization’s parking lot, and even if you happen to be taking it out of an annual storage box and re-assembling, it is more fun to introduce a few new ornaments to your tree-trimming ritual with festive furnishings to your decorative balls and beyond.
