Growing older has caused me to reflect back a lot on what I’ve learned and how I have learned those lessons. It’s quite the interesting experience to make an attempt at breaking down the scenarios of your life that conveyed the more important lessons of life and how I came about those lessons themselves, how to even recognize what I was learning. In school they taught the importance of leadership skills and while they might explain attributes that make being a leader necessary, they never quite teach you the how or why. Going through dozens of role play and simulations, whether in word problems or writing essays on the subject of such, will still never prepare you for the actual real life experiences you will have as you learn these lessons. There are so many factors that contribute in those moments but never are you going to go through them alone.
There is said to be just a single, standard type of intelligence that most people attribute their abilities to. There is another thought that there are in fact multiple intelligences that can fluctuate more widely throughout the population; social intelligence being one of them, is something that I firmly believe in. These are individuals who are able to grasp the feeling of a room, to read people well, that are more in touch with their empathy and compassion. It allows them to effect how they interact with people to a higher degree than someone with, say, a good set of mathematical talent but no social ability. Leaders have to call forth upon many different skill sets throughout their days and in doing so, they polish a degree of data absorption and empathy for their teams or the people around them through the constant and rigorous use of these innate skills.
I work with the young people at my church to help them get jobs once they are done with college. Many kids return home after completing college until they can find work doing what they have trained to do. I just recently found a sales recruitment site that helped me get jobs for three young men in the church.
These kids have worked hard to get through college and I find it very heartbreaking that they have such a difficult time finding work. Back when I graduated from college, it was fairly easy to find a job doing what you had gone to school for. These days, jobs are so limited that it can take months, even years to find a job doing what you want to do.
I do what I can to get these kids the jobs that they dreamed of having when they started school. Continue reading

We were looking for team development training to increase the skills of our workforce. We use small teams to develop product ideas in our software company. The last few years has been trending toward apps for the new tablets, smartphones and other computing devices. We wanted to get ahead of the pack and develop apps that take the market by storm. Cohesiveness in development teams goes a long way toward increased productivity.
We faced the facts that we had three classifications of teams within our company. We had functionally intact teams that were producing mixed results, new teams just beginning to work together, and troubled teams that needed much work. Continue reading
I am looking for a company capable of web design in north wales to help me with the website that I just started to work on. I attempted to build the website on my own, and it seems like I remember less of HTML from school than I thought. As it turns out, my website looks very crude right now, and I am going to have to hire some sort of professional web designer in order to help me to build this website. It is very important to me that the website turns out the way that I picture it in my head, so I will have to find a web designer that is willing to work with me in order to make this website the way that I would like it to be.
I am going to try to be as easy to work with as possible, but there is something very specific that I have in mind as to how this website should turn out. Continue reading
I’ve been looking for an electrician chester, because I’ve just gotten tired of the overhead light in my dining area. There’s something about a dining table (any proper dining table, I think) that calls out for a chandelier or pendant. Perhaps it’s the cozy feel that such fixtures lend.
I always planned to replace that light, even from the start, when I first bought the home. It’s been one of my favorite things about owning, after all, that I get to make any changes that I wish, no matter how extensive. Now, not that I can afford truly drastic changes…but getting that overhead rewired into a pendant fixture or chandelier should be no trouble at all.
Probably I’m putting the cart before the horse a bit, because I haven’t entirely settled on which new light fixture I’d like. I’ve got it narrowed to a few choices, though, at my local home furnishings store. And after a friend of mine had a suboptimal experience with an electrician who overcharged and underdelivered, I’ve decided that I can’t be too choosy when shopping around for a professional. There’s plenty more that I want to do with my home’s wiring, after all. So I’d like to start a relationship with an electrician who will be trustworthy for much more work to come.
What else do I want to do? Well, the guest bedroom has only one very inconveniently located outlet installed, and I’d like to make it possible for my guests to have a light by their bedside. Rather amazing, isn’t it, that this was overlooked before? Also, I’m hoping to get a tankless water heater, so I want to make sure my home’s wiring will support one. And finally, I’d like dimmer switches across the house. Good lighting makes such a difference, and dimmer switches make good lighting.
Anyway, I’m open to electrical-expert recommendations. And if you’ve got a great home-wiring project that you’ve recently completed, feel free to send in images of your results! I’d love to know what others are doing.
When I first got married, I imagine there were probably a few people who felt sorry for my husband. I don’t mean that in a bad way about myself, but they knew that people would expect his wife to be different than me. He is a bank executive, so it was only natural that we would end up hosting dinners at our house. Since I am a bit of a free spirit, the idea of me being the hostess of a conservative dinner was a bit contradictory. When I showed my husband the welsh slate placemats that I purchased for our first corporate dinner party at our house, he had to smile.
Other wives have frilly or lace placemats when we went to their houses, but I like to think outside the box. I have always loved unique items so when I found the slate placemats, I knew that I needed to have them for our own get-togethers. Continue reading
Are you tired of the same old drab furniture that you tend to see everywhere else? Don’t you want to add some quality design to your furniture, and wouldn’t you like to see some innovation within a company? Surely during your next purchase you would like to smile when things are done. You don’t want to settle. You want furniture that is unique and creative. That is why you need to buy upholstered furniture from wade furniture.
You would be amazed at just how well everything sets up. My family recently needed to spice up their home a little. We all pulled together since we live together, and the kids even helped out. We had them selecting furniture for their rooms, and they also helped with the living areas. There were all different types of designs. Continue reading
I have always wanted to be a journalist, but life got in the way of that when I became pregnant with twins when I was just 19 years old. My husband was several years older and had a great job, so we decided I would stay home and raise our kids. I still never lost that thirst for wanting to share my view with others. I have often thought I was born in the wrong decade, but I am thankful that I am in the technological age because I can at least partake in social journalism.
Most of my friends were not even aware of what that was, so I had fun pointing out to some of them that they were already doing it themselves.
When I first started my company three years ago, I had no idea that it would grow as quickly as it did. For the first six months, it was just me. I hired on two others to help when things got busier, and now there are nearly 30 people working here. We are a close knit group, and I appreciate everyone more than I could ever express but I still wanted to try and show them. I did an online search for promotional polo shirt perth because I wanted to get matching shirts for everyone.
I was able to find a company that offered quite a nice range of polo shirts. I would be able to have my pick from different price ranges which was really nice, since I know some companies have a tighter budget than what we have.
This really is not my idea, but right now I am trying to learn about set construction. It is sort of what I get for being the type of retired person who does not sit around and watch TV all day long. My daughter and my son in law have gotten involved in setting up a little community theater project. They know that I have a lot of tools and that I am somewhat useful when the mood strikes me. For the most part I just do things that I want to do however. I like to build things for my garden and occasionally I try to build a dinghy or something like that. It is not like I want a deadline when I do it. I have a TV in my shop and I will occasionally sit down out there and do nothing except drink coffee and watch ESPN.
