The 3 Power E's in the Workplace - Etiquette, Emotion, Ethics

Many times we face conflicting constraints in executing our daily tasks. This Wednesday we will discuss maintaining equilibrium among the E's while we improve our communication skills. If this "Me Too" Era has taught us anything, it is that the rules of engagement change rapidly.

To keep it real, bring workplace situations for group evaluation.

Did You Know:

From: Lee Schearer,
To: My Fellow Chapel Hill Leads Group Members

"The Most Interesting Person"

In one of my daily devotional books, The Daily Guideposts 2016, I came across the passage " The most interesting person in the world is the person who is interested in me".

This passage is also one that is taught by many business consultants including our own member, Sharon Hill, in her business etiquette courses. It is also ingrained within an "attitude of gratitude" which our own member Dick O'Donnell, espouses. Being genuinely interested in another person's business or interest is a key component to becoming successful in life, however you define your chosen life-journey to be.

I invite you to join me this Wednesday morning at The Chapel Hill Leads Group. You will find it well worth the time and effort to be able to join fellow entrepreneurs who share your interests and that will be interested in both your business and in you as well.

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
