Sometimes we learn from those younger than us. That is the case of the often used response “whatever“. My oldest grandson Alex has been known to correct extended family members from using the word “whatever“. His explanation, “whatever means you don’t care.” And of course the assumption is that we should always care.

John C. Maxwell
BUILDING AND MAINTAINING A SUCCESSFUL TEAM is no simple task. Even people who have taken their teams to the highest level in their field have difficulty recreating what accounted for their successes. Is it a strong work ethic? Is it "chemistry"? What tools can you wrap your hands around to build - or rebuild - your team?

Whether coach or player, teacher or student, CEO or non-profit volunteer - with the "how-tos" and attitudes for building a successful team.
This October 10th is Lois’ ninth anniversary of her breast cancer surgery. So happy to have been able to spend these years cancer free. She has been a true hero to her three daughters and me. Here we are kidding around as I show my support during chemo therapy and one of her walks. I have to admit I still have my hair beneath that hat.
Lois used her cancer by being willing to share with others, not wanting the experience to be wasted. Although my perspective is different, I was able to do the same with several friends and acquaintances who faced cancer with their spouses as well. For some it does not go as easily without a faith that provides support and perspective.
