Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

Sklover Working Wisdom

This quote was contributed by Sarah from Alexandria, Louisiana. “What a pity human beings cannot exchange problems. Everyone knows how to solve the other person’s.” ” – Olin Miller. Isn’t it the truth? At work and elsewhere, it’s fine to offer a helping hand to one in need, but let them decide if they have a need, and how they want to address it. Don’t go telling other people their business. They might just turn around and tell you yours. 2016 Alan L. Sklover.

This quote was contributed by Sarah from Alexandria, Louisiana. “People value people who value people.” ” – Tony Curl. I just keep thinking about this quote.

And it speaks of those among us who attract clients and customers, who are often called “rainmakers.”

of New Iberia, Louisiana, way down in Cajun Country. “If someone sweats for you, you wash his shirt.” ” – Italian Proverb. I just LOVE this proverb: if someone puts out effort for you – at work or elsewhere – at least make it easy for her, and show your appreciation. It could be a simple act of kindness, or perhaps true “heavy lifting.” Whatever it is, make it as easy as possible for that person, and make sure, too, you express your appreciation in an authentic manner.

When Turnover Is High But That Means You're World Class.

The HR Capitalist

Among other things, his teams have won six national championships (five at Alabama and one when he was the head coach at Louisiana State University).
