3 strategies to help employees take responsibility for decisions so you can get more done.by: Laurie J. Maddalena, MBA, CPCC, PHRDo you ever struggle with getting things done because you are frequently interrupted?One thing I hear from leaders when I teach a workshop on time management is that they can’t get anything done because of all the interruptions they encounter each day. Many of those interruptions come from their employees asking for guidance or direction. A manager in one of my recent workshops said, “I am constantly interrupted, and I can’t get any real work done!”Leadership can be challenging: managing a staff, meeting deadlines, dealing with emergencies, handling members and attending meetings. It can be hard to find time to do actual work on important projects or tasks. When I was a human resources executive, I often left the office at the end of the day feeling like I didn’t get any important work accomplished, even if I worked 10 hours. Then I learned a skill that changed everything.One of the biggest contributors to taking up a manager’s time is upward delegation. Upward delegating is when an employee brings a problem or issue to you to solve. Whether intentional or not, the employee is shifting the ownership of the problem to you, their manager. These are things your employee should know how to handle themselves. Perhaps they don’t have the level of skill yet and come to you for the answer, or they just don’t feel comfortable making a decision. continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

Well, approaches that make a difference, of course. So what do you get when … Web: credituniongeek.com Details Ever visit someplace from childhood and think, “wow, I remember it being bigger”? Go back a few times or ask your kids (who are there for the first time) and all seems normal. You’ve just experienced Shifting Baselines.Think of it as a change in the perception of normal. I’m not talking about how your impeccable teenage styles seem ridiculous now. Let’s be honest, flower headbands will always be cool (as will bow ties). This is about one person’s standard becoming another’s outlier.You may not be familiar with the term, and that’s ok. I’ve only seen it used when discussing environmental change. Even then, only in the oceans; fish size, abundance, and all. But you’re in luck! I happen to have a background in ocean policy and marine science. It’ll come back around to credit unions, I promise.Let’s paint a scenario so everyone can grasp Shifting Baselines. We have two fishermen: one, an old salty dog, another freshly joining the industry. The former sings shanties of days gone by, the latter just waits for their first day on the water. Here’s where the trouble begins:Our salty dog (lifelong fisherman) considers a “big fish” 150 lbs. and a “good” catch 1,000 lbs.The newbie (no prior experience in area) is excited to reel in a “big fish” weighing 50 lbs. and sails home with a “good” catch netting (forgive the pun) 400 lbs.Do you see the issue? What is great for one is ruin for the other. However, the new fisherman has no memory of the “better days” and instead considers their first day the norm. When our salty dog leaves the industry, their standard and memory goes with them. Moving forward, smaller fish and fewer of them is expected (without ever realizing the loss). Yet we know the past really was brighter. In fact, who’s to say our old fisherman wasn’t reminiscing over already diminished catches? Maybe their elders sang of even larger fish!Are you suffering from Shifting Baselines in your credit union? Take the opportunity to speak with your longest-serving staff, board members, and even members. Get their take on how the institution has evolved. Are the new normals for the better?Within the marine realm, Shifting Baselines almost always represent a loss. Does your credit union share the trend, or has the baseline improved? If I walked in to your branch, my standard would begin at that moment. If compared to a member from 50 years ago, would I be pleasantly surprised or disappointed?Do you have stories from your credit union’s “old salts”? Share them here or with me on Twitter at @JoeCUGeek.For more information on how Shifting Baselines applies to our oceans, visit Smithsonian Ocean Portal.

The suspects were caught after theyallegedly sold suspected shabu to an undercover officer around 11 p.m. on Nov.29, a police report showed. They were detained in the lock up cellof the Cadiz City police station, facing charges for violation of Republic Act9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002./PN BACOLOD City – Five persons werearrested in a drug buy-bust operation in Barangay Daga, Cadiz City, NegrosOccidental. Police identified them as Kim Villacarlos,21; John Christopher Revero, 18; Nino Bonganon Rebamonte, 21; John Wayne Tabale,20; and Jude Remeda, 30.
He added: “I thought the first 10 minutes we were almost playing with a noose around our neck we were so tense and tight and it took a decision by the referee. I don’t really care if Arsenal win 4-0 [next weekend], If I’m honest, I’m sure Spurs will – but I only care that our fans enjoy themselves.” Pardew once again hit out at suggestions over the last month that his squad has been divided within the dressing room and was pleased with the spirit shown by his players. “The accusations have been so ridiculous,” he added. “You don’t get a draw at West Brom and West Ham and a win here if you’ve got rifts going on. Their penalty looked a bit dubious to me and I thought ours looked dubious but once that went in I thought we settled down on a difficult pitch and played quite well. “But we showed a real determination and resilience to get the job done, for not just this club but for the North East. It’s massive for North East football that we are a Premier League club so I’m absolutely delighted for our fans and players.” Harry Redknapp was unhappy with both goals conceded by his side after taking the lead and the QPR boss explained his decision to replace under-fire Bosingwa at the break. “They were horrendous goals, both of them,” he said. “I thought it was a poor penalty and once we conceded the penalty we conceded another bad goal. “It (crowd reaction to Bosingwa) was not going to help anyone. It was negative. He made a couple of errors but he didn’t mean to do it and I took him off because we needed the crowd to be with us. People pay their money, we all get grief at some stages but it has been a miserable season.” Manager Alan Pardew admitted he does not care if Newcastle lose their final game of the season next weekend after securing Barclays Premier League survival with a 2-1 win at relegated QPR. Press Association The Magpies arrived at Loftus Road with their top-flight status still in jeopardy and fell behind to a debatable Loic Remy penalty on 11 minutes. But they were ahead before half-time as QPR defender Jose Bosingwa twice handed them crucial goals, with Hatem Ben Arfa scoring from the penalty spot and Yoan Gouffran netting the winner. Newcastle had to hang on after goalkeeper Rob Elliot saw red for a second caution but the visitors got the points to ensure they will stay up, and Pardew said: “I’m very pleased. It was a very important game for this football club. Particularly this year with the extra finance of staying in the Premier League.”
The Baggies are keen to bring the striker to The Hawthorns and talks are set to take place between all parties, Press Association Sport understands. A deal could be wrapped up by the end of the week with Albion’s transfer activity expected to gather pace now boss T ony Pulis has returned from the United States following their three-game tour. West Brom are expected to step up their interest in Liverpool’s Rickie Lambert in the next 24 hours. Press Association The winger, signed from Wigan this summer, is from a republican background in Northern Ireland and has also refused to wear a Remembrance Day poppy out of respect for people killed on Bloody Sunday. “Obviously there has been a stigma around him and he doesn’t need to start that up again,” Pulis told the Wolverhampton Express & Star. “So hopefully we’ve nipped it in the bud and we can get on with our things and he can get on with his things. I didn’t see the situation but I had a chat with him and explained what we do as a football club and the way we are and I think he’s fine with everything. “We’ve got Northern Ireland lads in the squad and he’s been absolutely fantastic with them, and the way he’s mixed and integrated with the group has been brilliant. “I’ve seen the pictures and he’s got to turn towards the flag like everybody else has and he recognises that.” Pulis is hunting a new striker to help Saido Berahino with question marks over record signing Brown Ideye’s future following a disappointing first season in England. Lambert also struggled to make an impact at Liverpool after a move from Southampton last summer with the 33-year-old scoring just three times in 36 appearances. He rejected a deadline day move to Aston Villa in February with the forward insisting he did not want to leave Liverpool after just half a season. But the England international will also fall down the pecking order on Merseyside with the impending arrival of Christian Benteke, with the Aston Villa striker set to complete a £32.5million transfer to Anfield. Pulis is overhauling his squad this summer with QPR’s Matt Phillips and Arsenal’s Serge Gnabry on his radar. Michail Antonio remains a target despite West Brom having a £5million bid rejected by Nottingham Forest last week. It is understood the Baggies remain confident they can land the winger. Meanwhile, Pulis has warned James McClean he must protect his reputation after his snub of the English flag. McClean refused to face the cross of St George during the national anthem while on Albion’s pre-season tour of America.
The University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team (10-4-2, 4-3-2 Big Ten) was unable to put up any points Sunday against conference rival Northwestern (8-6-2, 5-3-1 Big Ten).In what was a quiet contest for the first 37 minutes of play, Northwestern surged before half to score two goals. Unfortunately for the Badgers, they were unable to match this offensive output in the remaining minutes.Wisconsin women’s soccer fights the Illini, walks away with a 1-0 victoryThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team is back on track after defeating the Illinois Fighting Illini on Friday night Read…Mckenna Agnotti scored the first of the two goals for the Wildcats on a strong shot from the left side of the field, assisted by both Brenna Lovera and Kim Jerantowski. The latter was finished less than three minutes later by Marisa Viggiano on a free kick put-in.Wisconsin was able to stay competitive in the shot count with their opponents, attempting five shots on goal to Northwestern’s six. However, the execution just was simply absent on both sides of the field for the Badgers.Goalkeeper Caitlyn Clem was unable to match her cousin Lauren’s performance in the game. Caitlyn’s .667 save percentage on the day was below her average and gave the Badgers little chance with the stagnant offense they displayed Sunday.On the other hand, Lauren Clem of Northwestern made all five of her saves, leaving a goose egg in the Badger’s box score. Lauren appears to be hitting her stride for the Wildcats, notching her second straight shutout in the home win.While the Badgers once again went with a three forward rotation, it was ultimately unsuccessful. Lauren Rice and Cameron Murtha were the only strikers to have shots on goal, with two and one respectively.Looking forward, the Badgers hopes for the Big Ten tournament appear to be darkening. This loss gives Northwestern a lead in the conference standings, where Wisconsin places sixth. However, the Badgers’ seed could fall to eighth within the next game, as only one point separates them from Purdue and Nebraska.Women’s soccer: Badgers get momentum back against Purdue after unsuccessful road tripAfter an underwhelming road trip, the University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team has gotten its winning streak back on track Read…Unfortunately for the Wisconsin women, their final road stand seems to be leaving them with more questions than answers.

On Tuesday, July 11, 2012, the pair appeared in front of thousands of fans at a news conference in Los Angeles – both with venomous words enough to sink a ship. McGregor was the first of the fighters to taunt their rival“Little legs, little head…the movement, power, ferociousness – he has not experienced this…” McGregor said.Mayweather responded in kind “I guarantee you’re going out on your face or your back. We know ‘Mr Tap Out’ likes to quit and you will wave that white flag.”The LA conference was the first of four events called to promote the Las Vegas fight which will reportedly earn each man around one hundred million dollars ($100m). Surely, it seems the reward for the combatants is the drive as this fight most likely in years ahead wouldn’t be dissected by scholars, or put in jars containing jots of some of the great Boxing bouts.To those on the ‘circus’ divide, and the few eagerly anticipating this blockbuster, one thing is certain, we all would be entertained, even more than the bore fest that was Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao.Photo Credit – ReutersRelatedVIDEO: Watch Jose Mourinho Give His Verdict On Mayweather Vs McGregor FightAugust 25, 2017In “Sports”Mayweather v McGregor: Fight Will End Early And “Won’t Go The Distance”, Says MayweatherAugust 11, 2017In “Sports”VIDEO: Watch Floyd Mayweather Defeat McGregor To Make Boxing HistoryAugust 27, 2017In “Sports” Boxing – A COMBAT sport in which two people wearing protective gloves throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a boxing ring.Mixed martial arts (MMA) – A full-contact COMBAT sport that allows both striking and grappling, both standing and on the ground, using techniques from other combat sports and martial arts.This isn’t a definition class, but an article on what I term an “acceptable anomaly” on the proposed BOXING bout involving a career-long pugilist and a mixed martial artist.Goose bumps, Stomach butterflies, Mouth agape – were bit part reactions when the official announcement was made on a fight involving reigning UFC Lightweight Champion, Connor McGregor against American undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. A former fighter, Bernard Hopkins tagged the fight “a circus”. Truly, it’s hard to carpet that remark albeit cynical from the former boxer.How does a man who all his life has mastered the act of engaging in professional combat with gloves battle he who knows not more than mixed martial art? It is much like having Jan-Ove Waldner, the man widely regarded as being the greatest table tennis player of all time; take on Lawn Tennis legend, Roger Federer – because (Tennis) is involved in their craft. Befuddling!Experts believe this fight is tolerable based on the definition above, both fighters are COMBATANTS.
