Forklift Philosophy - Do You Have One, Yet?
Saturday August 31, 2013
One useful way of defining a philosophy is to say that it is a vantage point in which a person stands when viewing his or her environment. Its what makes us different and similar to each other in significant ways. The problems of poor communication, frustration, confusion, hurt feelings, and anger can be the result of having a different vantage point...or, worse, yet, shifting vantage points...that tend to irk most reasonable people. When you like the agreement you have with another person, and can discuss energetically almost anything, you probably have similar philosophies or vantage points. Discussion on any matter can supercharge your energy! It is easy to like someone who is you in another person!

ever-present popular nonsense and myths about human and organization
behavior management. This year's theme was, evidence-based solutions to human performance problems and opportunities.
