    I had to copy my comment and go to your profile @Jim 🐝 Cody to find this buzz again. It wouldn't post and then I lost the page so here it is :))
    When I worked at the hospital in Respiratory Therapy, a good team was vital. We had to respond to many traumas and without a good team, the patient may have suffered. I can only draw from my time in the hospital because I've never worked in a Corporate setting. I did work in a small office with 8 people and I have to say, our boss (not a leader) created an environment that caused half the office to be on pins and needles, not to mention cranky. A good leader fell under #2 on your list in particular for me when I worked at the hospital, he didn't even have to work at producing employee trust... he led by example, he was admired and well liked which rubbed off on all of us. He was also a patient and understanding man. My boss in the office environment was a good example of everything a bad leader is.

    @Jim 🐝 Cody Your #6 is most important for my personality. Over and over throughout my life, I have always been a guru and it has work. Yet, I have learned that it doesn't work in a team. Team usually already have a system in place. So the question for me usually was, "I am willing to learn or change to benefit from this team or keep working alone?" Sometimes it was harder then seemed. I would join a team, and keep doing something my why and have to realize that it didn't work until I came to my senses and say to myself, "okay, I am ready to learn this."

    #4 @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Self-Directed is probably the most appropriate because they are almost never self-organized. They are usually started by management and trained on how to work together especially concerning managing budget.
    I just wish more companies would use this in their organizations however; upper and middle management is unwilling to empower the employees for fear of losing control. When using these methods companies can eliminate some layers of management and this is their greatest fear.
    Many thanks, for your comment.

    #21 Thanks, Phil. Interestingly, I did an interest-based negotiation workshop with entrepreneurs and despite the importance of win-win solutions for new firms, not one group found the interest-based solution. I also had a colleague try the same exercise at the end of a semester long class on negotiations for MBA students. Even after training, over a third of the class failed to find the interest-based solution. Part of the trick may be how to reframe the negotiation process for the other negotiator and orient them to understanding the potential long-term benefits of honestly sharing information and uncovering a win-win solution..

    #19 That may be true, Michele. But I'd bet that the bulk of subjects studies by Kray and colleagues were lawyers and businessmen raised in the tradition of power- and leverage-based negotiating. And that it had never occurred to them that "winning" such negotiations more often than not resulted in collateral damage to the potential for the parties to do future, mutually profitable business. What I am suggesting is that women may not, for the most part, be already irretrievably inured to such short-sighted negotiating approaches and may, therefore, offer the best chance for interest-based negotiating to gain traction in the business world, to the benefit of us all. Am looking forward to your upcoming podcast. Cheers!

    #18 Thanks Phil. Fabulous post! Thank you for sharing it here. I agree that Interest-based Negotiations can help level the playing field, but that depends somewhat on people being honest about their interests or as in the cases you mentioned in your post, having other ways to uncover the other parties true interests, I mention this because of an interesting study by Kray and colleagues who found that negotiators were more likely to lie to women based on stereotypical perceptions that women are more gullible than men.
    Phil Friedman
    03/07/2017 #18 Phil Friedman
    Excellent post, Michele, and a terrific video. I suggest that the gender stereotypes you outline present an opportunity for women in negotiating heretofore mostly overlooked. Namely, to reject the "stereotypical" power- and leverage-based forms of negotiating in favor of Interest-Based Negotiation and Mediation. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/interest-based-negotiation-taking-the-high-road

    Good leaders must be able to attract followers. Those followers will be molded into the good image of their leaders. Leaders have to prepare followers to be able to accept leadership roles in the future. In order for that to happen the followers must be properly trained. Leaders should not feel intellectually challenged by their subordinates.The path should be, qualified recruitment, training, management and then leadership.

    A good leader sets the tone for the entire team. @Brigette Hyacinth wrote, "Leaders build people through training, coaching, mentoring, and rewarding. They recognize that everyone is motivated differently." Yes! I will always remember my 'leader' who trained and kept mentoring me after I was hired to be a Respiratory Technician. He was, what you described above in the quote I used from your buzz. Sadly, he died about 5 years ago from Cancer, he was a great man.

I guess I can call myself lucky, I only had one toxic boss... what a mess that was and still is from what I hear.

    Great points about being a true leader @Brigette Hyacinth! This one stood out: "Humility is a critical leadership success factor. Leading with humility means focusing on others and practicing the servant leadership. True leaders always aim to serve rather than be served." I've had one leader in my life who truly stood out and that was our director of Respiratory Therapy. He was kind, quiet, had a lot of humility, led by example and was extremely intelligent. Our department or as we'd be called today, our team functioned quite well as a team because of his excellent leadership skills. When I was pregnant he was flexible with me, something that wasn't so common back then. To this day, I'm grateful to him for hiring me and training me exceptionally well. We had many good times even though the job was highly stressful due to the nature of this type of career. Sadly, I learned he passed away from cancer about 5 years ago, he wasn't that old.

    #8 Victoria, Greater Vancouver and Toronto have insane house prices. However, Canada as you know is a huge country. Much lower house prices in Ottawa (great city), or in the Atlantic Provinces where lived for three decades. And Montreal (where I grew up) is not too bad. The marginal tax rate between $143k and $203k is 29%. If you're earning $46k - 92k, the rate's 20.5%. Canada's corp tax rate has dropped to 26.5% from the all time high of 51% in 1981. So the picture's improved.

    Until childcare becomes a part of our system: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@joyce-bowen/women-are-declining-to-breed. Women are smartening up and opting for careers over breeding.

    • Where do YOU personally stand on the challenges facing society and organizations from an ageing population? - I opted out - I moved to a third world country where the dollar goes further. I am never marrying, never having kids, and I am showing other men how to do the same. No more fodder for the machine. No more livestock for the sausage grinder.

    • Do YOU want to play a role in finding solutions, whether it’s dealing with mushrooming healthcare costs, encouraging the elderly to remain an active part of society or becoming an inter-generational barrier buster?

    War. That is always the solution the employ. They will launch a civil war - kill of a grand portion of Gen - X / Gen - Y while baby boomers will be shuffled off to camps - those that can't do camps will be unplugged. And they have been planning it for a good damn long time. Watch Venezuela - it is a rendition Beta Test. Ukraine is already in 2.o mode. The genocide there is clicking in to a steady stream.

    Ah, @Shelley Brown, nice to another episode from you. I have decided to "let it go" when it comes to guilt about missing work due to illness. I've learned its a disservice to the people I work with to come to work in full bloom, only pass on my misery to those I work with unintentionally. The work will be there when you get back. Think of it as your body forcing you to take a mental health day ;-). The choice to add insult to injury and place your breast in an archaic vise. . ., that one's on you.

    Feel Better!

    Oh how I remember those days of guilt. Why do we feel such guilt when we are really ill? And, people should be happy we aren't coming in spreading what most likely started out as a virus. I enjoyed the way you put this story together. I saw burgers with Duck as one of the toppings you could choose from while we were in Mo or KS? My husband would not stop in and check it out with me, the menu was on the outside window or door. I really want to try one. I hope you are feeling better soon! I had bronchitis with a seal's bark a few weeks before we left for vacation, that cough is vicious. I'm not sure what's going around this year but I've never seen so many people get sick with similar symptoms and it lingers! Be well my friend.

    OMW! I used to go through guilt when I called in sick, which was very rare. I had to almost be on my deathbed before I would call in sick. My last employer structured sick days, vacation days, etc. as PTO (part time off), which worked well. I could use my days as I wanted.

    Priceless piece @Shelley Brown and welcome back!

    It doesn't always work for me, @Shelley Brown, but in the last few years I decided to give up guilt and replace it with satisfaction.

    "Damn. I should go to work today instead of calling in sick. Hmmm... Nah. I'd rather stay in bed for another hour, eat a lazy mid-morning breakfast, and binge-watch episodes of Shetland and drink hot tea... ahhhh... much better."

    When I hear that "should" in my head, I ask myself: "Is that MY should? Or is it someone else's?" If it's someone else's, I simply let it go and do what I want to do. But if it's mine? I either do it immediately, or I schedule it as a calendar item in my phone and just get it done.

    That is pure stream of consciousness at play dear Shelley! Guilt is a healthy sign of an active conscience. But folks need not kill themselves pushing it to the hilt ;) q Bronchitis is such a drag! Messed me up bad through four years of high school. Change of place musta killed it eventually (or a couple of other things I done that I cannot mention here ;)... as I moved up North after school for college.
