Reposting because I’m trying to build good mojo for later tonight!
God. Not only can we win but we can end the Cowboys season. The COWBOYS!

You know, back in my day you could hang out around the McDonald’s Playplace with a zoom lens and no one called you “Creepy.”
And squinting was big in the 90s. I swear.
National Bow Tie Day 2013!
"I think my head might be a little too big for a bow tie."
"I think your head might be a little to big for a railroad tie."
As I start to wrap up this look back, here’s one on my old leadership posts. In the future, posts like this will live on my leadership/training focused tumblr at anthonygiffen.tumblr.com
Most individuals imagine their value to their organization is greater than it likely is.“This place would fall apart without me!”
Most organizations tend to underestimate the value of the individuals in their organization.“No one is irreplaceable. Our success is the result of the combined efforts of the team, not of any one or two individuals.”
The true value of an individual to the team usually lies somewhere in between, but it is the gap between the perceptions that is the biggest problem.
The bigger the gap, the bigger the problem.
All people want is to be recognized and appreciated appropriately for the work that they do. As both a leader and as a member of other leaders’ teams, I have seen that leaders who can narrow or close this “perceived value gap” will see measurable increases in productivity, higher retention rates, and much higher morale.
