PERSONAL NOTE FROM THE CAPTAIN
Sunday night my wife and I attended the theatrical production of The Lion King. What a fantastic play! The costumes, the music, just made me feel great. The important point I got out of the play was this. When things are tough and you start worrying, all you simply need to say is “Hakuna Matata.” Wouldn’t it be great if all we had to do is say these words to give us a positive attitude. Even though this was only a play based on fiction, the truth is your attitude controls how you feel about life. My favorite author and speaker was Norman Vincent Peale, the author of many books including The Power of Positive Thinking. He said, “People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.”

FACE TIME WITH THE BOSS
Here is an passage from a story that appeared in the Kansas City Star – MO
All in a day: Regular face time with boss makes employees smile
If managers talk to workers about their goals and dreams, then it helps keep people motivated and working harder. However, this takes constant communication and engagement.
“In fact, there is a ‘direct link between performance and the number of times managers meet with employees,’ said Nancy Merimee, an adjunct professor in human resource administration at Olathe’s MidAmerica Nazarene University.”
“Discussions about career growth are “key motivators for employees to stay with the organization — a way employees see a reward. And, in turn, the organization has the basis for a succession plan,” Merimee said.”
Here is an outstanding excerpt of an article on the Accenture website Outlook Journal, January 2008, by Robert J. Thomas.
Who’s on First? Turning Experience into Leadership
“Great companies and great baseball teams share many characteristics. One is ‘bench strength’: Both stay ahead of the game by carefully choosing and grooming future leaders. However, new research suggests that the ability to learn from experience is what really defines tomorrow’s MVPs (most valuable players).
Former GE chief Jack Welch reportedly once suggested that the task of leader development was too important to be left to HR. Steve Kerr, GE’s former chief leadership officer and for many years director of the company’s Crotonville, New York, management education center, says that in 1992, Welch came to the conclusion that “it was folly to try to prepare for a future that was so uncertain. We decided instead that most of our efforts would be spent making leadership of change a core competence of the firm.”
