In this past week we said goodbye to January and hello to February, opening our arms wide to celebrating the Hawaiian value of Aloha. Our Ho‘ohana for the month:
Aloha; a Celebration of Who We Are
Our Ho‘ohana is the work we do with purpose, with passion, and with full intentional presence.
In my Writing Elsewhere this week;
- On Managing with Aloha Online: The All-Star Line-up of Aloha. This posting kicks off the deeper study of Aloha for the MWA practitioners this month. I added a Postscript on: How to Read Managing with Aloha which those of you who have my book may also be interested in.
- On the Joyful Jubilant Learning Network: Exciting stuff! We have kicked off the 3rd Annual Love Affair with Books here, and we already have nine sign-ups for book reviews as of this writing. How about you? Are you in?
- On Lifehack.org: Training the Trainer: 5 Basics. A short excerpt to explain the why I wrote this one:This week, I’d like to offer you some suggestions on where to improve upon the training that all your managers will do in-house, and for the sake of their own credibility as managers and as emerging leaders.
Great Managers develop their own training skills and style, and in doing so, they simultaneous develop a stage presence which either adds to their credibility, or will unfortunately detract from it. When you train, your demeanor, this ‘stage presence’ gives your audience a clear message on both your command of the subject, and your confidence. This is pretty significant when your ‘audience’ is composed entirely of your staff.
Bonus Link! I welcomed my first guest author of 2007 to www.managingwithaloha.com and his article for us is witty yet sincerely written. Please join me in a hello to Steve Davidson, for Hawaiian Smarts, where he asks, Are Hawaiians the Smartest People in World?
