I really like hitting the reset button on my laptop. It retrieves information previously lost, helps me refocus on my plan, and corrects my previous mistakes. It can literally catapult me out of a potentially messy situation.
Similarly speaking, the beginning of a new season at work offers a chance to have a different frame of mind for the workplace. One may argue that returning to work after so many forced changes will just be another day, same oh- same oh, and business as usual, but to me it seems like a good opportunity to adjust our attitude, come in with a renewed game plan and correct perceptions of us and others that need change. Much like a football team returning to the field after half time, we can go back on the field, so to speak, with renewed desire and strength to reach our personal and professional goals.
Psychologists have stated that there are three things everyone needs for their emotional health:
If you don’t have a reset button for your job or nothing new to look forward to when you return to your position, work can be less than promising. The reality of a workplace crisis and the facing of a new day offers an opportunity to step back, take a deep breath and ask a few good questions. Another way to say it is by asking the question: Where do we/I go from here?

Our whole group loved the session and talked about it for the next few days. In fact we still have fun with the color thing.
We’ve been fortunate to have Bill Gallagher at our last two conferences. Bill brings a professional and non-threatening approach to his team-building workshops.
Our staff gave the workshop high marks because what we learned could be applied to both the personal and professional aspects of our lives. The material was though provoking without being threatening.
