Do our staff and employees need tougher skin — or do we not care?

 

I was talking with a mate the other day, about the need for some employees to toughen up — to get a thicker skin.

Stinky Cultures

 

It’s amazing how negative, negative people can be. When it comes to our workplace and family cultures, it’s truely destructive.

You cannot live the dream, when fantasies own your mind.

The thing I value most in life, is a clear vision — but the science shows that an outcome of porn, for example, is brain fog.
