People Solutions Articles


I was wondering earlier this week if there was a topic we have not tackled in the People Solutions newsletter. I looked back through the archives and realized we have covered a lot of stuff. Then it hit me, like a bear coming out of the woods, startled then contemplative . . . I don't think we have ever tackled the subject of Passive-Aggressiveness. Why?

We all know what attitude does, and yet there always seems to be some old idea that whips us back into shape with a quick attitude adjustment or something new that helps it all make sense, one more time. I am no different than anyone else in that I continually need the reinforcement of hearing again about the things I know but sometimes neglect to do. No matter how many different things we've heard about having a great attitude, it seems safe to broach the subject again with the hopes to positively influence the thoughts we hold today.
