In our communities and workplaces, the expectations continue to go up. We are always striving to do more and get better results. We can�t keep having the same people doing all of the work all of the time. The fast pace, the workload, and the resource challenges call for innovation, motivation, and collaboration. We need to balance people and priorities. We need to stop surviving and move up to thriving in challenging times. Building positive relationships facilitates making people the priority to get the best from the most.
