    Quite a few of my pet hates and fears here, Susan:
    - Mondays, except when eating fish (ie barramundis);
    - Poor service (these days you can bank on it);
    - Reims of geographically challenged visiting France (Amiens to that); and
    - Croc shoes are lamentable (they’ve got no sole).

    But I really got a ‘lift’ out of Darth Vader’s wife.

    This buzz reminds me of the death crawl scene from the movie "facing the giants". The coach blindfolded the player and put another player on his back to carry. They usually went to the 30 yard line and he told the player to go to the 50. The coach knew his abilities and kept telling him to give it his all and not give up. The player would ask, "Am I there yet?" He replied, "Just give it your all". When the player finally collapsed, he realized he was at the impossible in his mind, the 100 yard line. This was because the coach knew he could do it and lead him to do it.

    #5 Joyce when I was a student teacher I had a student in my grade 12 class, who fell asleep in my class, but I did investigate and I did not give him a warning card. His falling asleep was a complicated but the bottom line is he wanted to be at school, and we helped him graduate. It was an important lesson for me as a teacher.

    My fondest memories come from those that are brave enough to teach insurance courses to enable students to obtain an insurance license. My favorite was a spunky southern belle that always had a story we could associate with the subject being discussed. There was also another great instructor that played his guitar and sang during the class.

    Both instructors had the highest number of students that passed the exams. Learning insurance can be both boring and confusing and I give credit to those instructors that make a difference.

    I have a distinct memory of an algebra teacher who had a droning demeanor. That, coupled with my seat placement inevitably put me to sleep--literally. For some reason, when the morning sun shines a certain way, I go to sleep. Have the problem to this day. I still have the warning card that says, "Stop sleeping in class." He did not investigate at all.

    #2 Preston, some of us take longer to "listen" I know it took me almost 30 years after I graduated to get my Masters because I was not ready to listen and learn what others had to say.

    I will not put this all on the teachers. From personal experience, I was the type of student who did not go to college to learn. All those years ago, I went to school because society told me it was the next step. Therefore teachers were talking at me. I was "lead to water", but I did not want to drink it.
    I memorized my way to a degree and thus did not learn anything. It was all short-term. It wasn't until I was face with the reality of how the world really works when I wanted to learn. This is something that was not taught to me in school. I found my self personal mentors. These new mentors "Talked To" me because I listened. Before, I was just a leaf following the current waiting to come ashore. I am just happy that happen before I was in my 30's or maybe 50's.

    Ah the blank stares of 'What the f*ck is he talking about' - I have been on both sides of the equation. I have a ball that I pitch to the class - at any momemt - the student could have to come up in front of class and demonstrate their understanding of the topic. Those that are motivated perform well, those that don't - I know lecture is not their mode and adjust as I can. It's a tougher gig than it looks from the student's seats.

    This resonates, "We burn trust 7X faster than we can earn trust. That means is if our walls are up just 15% of the time we are damaging the very relationships we are trying to nurture. When our walls go up, for whatever reason, we are giving away our energy and burning trust." It is also said it takes 10 positives to overcome a negative. Interesting observation, @Phil 🐝 Johnson, MBL and Brand Ambassador @beBee; it underscores the importance of vulnerability and open communication in the collaborative process. Great article, thank you. #3 @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee, it takes a very strong, emotionally intelligent person to admit feeling that little voice that says "I don't want to be wrong but am."

    @Phil 🐝 Johnson, MBL and Brand Ambassador @beBee many discussions around whether EI something we can learn, or is it something we are actually born with and across many years too. Cognitive scientist Delphine Nelis and colleagues recently tried to figure this out. In their study, published in Personality and Individual Differences, they divided roughly 40 college students into two groups. One attended four two-and-a-half hour training sessions over a four-week period in order to learn techniques for improving their emotional intelligence; the other didn't take the training. Delphine and her colleagues found that members of the group that received the training showed a significant improvement in their ability to identify their feelings and the feelings of others, as well as to manage and control their emotions. What's more, these improvements were apparent not only right after the training but also six months later. I have used the EI/TI balance in executive recruitment and the results are outstanding rather than focused on just TI for csuite replacements.

    I have noticed the frequent use of "i" in poems and it appears to be intentional since the use of it was repetitive. My thoughts are the use of "i" is to grab the readers attention or English is not their mother tongue. Whatever the reason, I feel I have to correct it.

    What a wonderful buzz, @Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar Goddess! Not finding the right letters capitalized is a pet peeve of mine. Especially, when it comes to I.

    I remember one of my students consistently using small 'I' while writing his essays. No amount of corrections helped.

    One day I asked him, "don't you think you are important enough?" He nodded and said, "I am important, yes." Then I told him, "Why then do you not capitalize the I's in your essays? Capitalization stands for something big and important, right?" I think that did the trick. It might not make much sense to us adults but the kid understood and I could see he would make a conscious effort at keeping all his I's capital and a bonus, he started writing his name starting with a capital letter, too. :-)

I know that not everyone grew up learning English (whichever variation) as a native tongue; I'm amazed at how well others do with it under those circumstances and I respect them immensely.

    But even though are times when we don't have to be "proper," with business we do best when we err on the side of caution, of professionalism.
