Does a grateful attitude help in being a servant-leader? Most of us know what servant-leadership is. We understand the general concept of acting gracious toward our direct reports and team, focusing on what’s best for others or the success of the team rather than our personal gain...
There are more books than a person can read on how leaders can get their team to focus and achieve their goals, create loyalty, and increase engagement - but not many that appear to be as compassionate or fun as those used by Jim Henson and the culture of the Muppets Workshop.
It's helpful to not only plan trips and outings, it's a good idea to have plans for ourselves. Of course many things will come our way that might take us off course - sometimes for the better and sometimes for what may be seen as the worst - or at least more difficult. Although we can't plan everything, and even if we do, "life happens" and we will need to re-orient. We'll need to plan for times to celebrate and times to deal with the hard things of life - having a destination helps us plan our route and choose what we pack. Are you packing a positive, resilient posture? A cynical self-protecting mindset? Bravery? Self-centeredness? A gracious and giving spirit?
Almost 16 million American adults experienced at least one major depressive episode within the last 12 months. Included in the diagnostic symptoms list is; feelings of hopelessness. How do we lose hope and how do we get it or get it back?
Tim shares with you what he has learned to be effective in his work with RAD clients and families. Whether you are a professional working with RAD clients or an individual impacted by RAD, you will gain insight into the complex inner thoughts and relational constructs by reading through Tom’s journal. You’ll learn by written word and in the visual presentation from the font chosen to the movement/placement of Tom’s words in his journal.
Tim invites mental health professionals, family members, friends, and those dealing with attachment issues to dive deep into the world of Tom, a man living with RAD, coping with the disorder and his journey toward hope. There IS hope.
This book is written by a therapist for therapists. This book is written for adults with RAD or un-diagnosed RAD. This book is for those who care for someone with RAD or RAD symptoms. This isn’t a self-help book in which you follow the 10 steps and you or another will be cured. This book is truthful about what RAD is, how it may occur (maybe not exactly what you expect), the long road ahead for healing, and very importantly – hope for a healthier future!
Back in January we talked about how journaling can be therapeutic. I still find that to be true. When I take the time to write, it allows my brain to process things in a way that doesn't happen if I keep my thoughts in my head, or even if I speak them out loud. Journaling is an inexpensive and relatively easy form of therapy.
Last week was National Sleep Awareness Week! This week we started Day Light Savings Time (well most of us anyway) and set our clocks ahead Saturday night or Sunday morning. How do you feel about losing that hour? Do you see it as a lost hour of sleep or a lost hour of time to be productive?
Where did the last year go? As many of us take some time to look back on the last year I feel like 2015 for me was rather unbelievable, unexpected, unbalancing…well…it was “un-“
I have always enjoyed the fresh feeling of a new year – the countdown and hope for something better than what has been. After going through a divorce this past year, I am ready for a fresh start.
“The most serious daring starts within.”
- Harriett Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, published 1852
Harriett Beecher Stowe famously wrote in her book Uncle Tom’s Cabin that “the most serious daring starts within”. Stowe’s book, as you most likely know, is a literary classic based on stories that she heard as a young woman
True Blue is by Tracy, and her husband Tom (co-author), about their discovery of clinical depression and the early symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and living life with mental illness. Tracy and Tom share their very personal experiences with vulnerability and directness.
Time to “count your blessings” as an old hymn lyric goes, and to tell about the things you are thankful for!
Today we have a guest blogger, Kristin. Here is her story of how suicide has affected her life…
How do we balance expectations and reality? It takes intentionality. We have to look at where we are (reality), and where we want to be (our expectations).
We chose I Have to Be Perfect, by Timothy Sanford, to be one of our resources because perfectionism seems epidemic and studies have shown it is maladaptive and unproductive.
