Take-aways that ACTUALLY create positive change. Sound like what YOU’RE looking for? Then Motivational … Web: www.neenjames.com Details Incredible leaders understand working relationships built on trust and transparency is a key element in productivity and accountability. As you focus on building your communications and training within your Credit Union, consider these five essential strategies to nurture trust, and develop a stronger connection amongst team members – a win for everyone. Explain decisions. People are much more willing and eager to do the WHAT when they understand the WHY. Let your team know the thought processes behind objectives, how the outcome effects the organization and what they can expect by way of time and resources. You’ll find people more apt to jump in with both feet and get the work accomplished in less time and with more enthusiasm. Share goals. Can you give your team members the top three goals for where you are headed as a team so they may use as a filtering system for their decisions? If they are really clear on the goals, you’ll find that their productivity will rise and their ability to focus on what’s most important will increase as well. Collaborate versus delegate. While delegation is a critical component for every leader, collaboration can bridge gaps between people, resolving issues before they even arise. Can you reach out to other people in your Credit Union, across departments or even outside your team to find new, mutually beneficial ways to problem-solve, build momentum and grow? It’s a powerful connection when you canSay no. While that may sound counterintuitive, we often have to say NO to some requests in order to say YES to the things that really matter. Can you give your team members the autonomy to say no as well? If their plates are too full or they are not the right fit for a project for example, they should have the security that they can communicate with you and leadership without repercussion. Host a town hall. When I was in the oil industry in Australia, I had a boss who did this on a regular basis. He’d gather top leadership and host an open question session with all of the team members. It was such a valuable experience for us all to be able to speak directly and openly with the stakeholders in our organization. It made everyone feel like they were part of the process and an integral part of the team. Can you invite a gathering of essential leaders to help answer questions and provide clarification to the team executing on the ideas? Communicate often and early. We are not always in the know of issues and requests coming down the pipeline. Member issues. Change requests. Budgetary issues. Changes in structure or policies. Smart leaders don’t keep all of those things to themselves, or wait until the last minute to share. They communicate often and early about all things that effect how and when team members need to respond to their tasks. That way, everyone can get on the same page and get what needs to be done accomplished in the best and most timely way possible.Design over process. Can you begin each project strategically questioning the design of how things have “always been done?” Look for the opportunities where you can design a more effective team. Where you can re-think old processes, improve skills, fuel innovation and encourage positive change?All of these strategies are aligned with building trust within your team by helping everyone work cohesively and efficiently. It’s also what helps people jump in when they know there is a crisis or a goal without hesitancy or complaint. How could you begin to build a team of one unified vision? What steps can you take to bridge gaps and build trust and transparency within your Credit Union? read more
By Steve TongueLONDON,(Reuters)-Chelsea were left disappointed but still extended their lead to 10 points at the top of the Premier League after Burnley held them 1-1 yesterday.Champions Leicester City, however, sank deeper into trouble at the bottom, as a 2-0 defeat away to Swansea City left them a point above the relegation zone.Manager Claudio Ranieri agreed that the Welsh club, who moved three points above his team, had been more determined and said that “it is not possible to continue this way”.Leicester remain in danger of becoming the first English champions to go down the year after winning the title since Manchester City in 1938.The current City side under Pep Guardiola have an opportunity to cut Chelsea’s lead back to eight points if they win at Bournemouth today.In an entertaining game at Burnley played amid flurries of sleet and snow, Pedro gave Chelsea an early lead from a pass by Victor Moses but the home side fought back well and equalised midway through the first half with a superb curling free kick by Robbie Brady, making his full debut.Burnley, promoted last season, moved up one place to 12th and fully deserved a draw. They have earned 29 of their 30 points this season at home.They restricted the leaders to only two shots on target, including the goal, which led Chelsea manager Antonio Conte to conclude his team could have done better with their 71 percent possession.REWARD FOR BRAVERY“We must be disappointed with the point because I think this type of game we could win,” Conte said.“We started very well and created chances to score. We could have killed the game but it didn’t happen.“Now it is important to restart.”Brady’s equaliser was believed to be the first goal Chelsea had conceded from a direct free kick in four years.“The lads were excellent and it shows what they’re about,” he told Sky Sports.Manager Sean Dyche said the result was a reward for bravery.“The mentality is the main thing I’m pleased with,” he said.“We wanted to do what we do. For the first 20 minutes we couldn’t get it right, but I was super-impressed with the reaction to their goal.”Leicester’s poor run continued and they have now not won in 15 away games in the league since last April or scored in six league games in 2017.Ranieri, who was given a vote of confidence in an official club statement last week, saw his team go two goals down to Swansea before halftime to defenders Alfie Mawson and Martin OlssonThey improved a little after he made two substitutions for the second half but Lukasz Fabianski still had little to do except make one save from Algerian striker Islam Slimani.Leicester now have a break for an FA Cup tie at Millwall and then a Champions League tie with Sevilla before league games at home to Liverpool and relegation rivals Hull City.“I wanted the start of a ‘new season’ today, but it is the same, it is unbelievable,” Ranieri said.“We have to speak together to find the solutions, it is not possible to continue in this way.“The machine is not broken but when you don’t play at a maximum level it is a difficult battle. They were more determined than us, that’s the truth.”Swansea have now won three of their last four games under former Paris St Germain, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich assistant manager Paul Clement.“We have worked hard on the training ground to get the basics right, nothing complicated,” he said. read more
City of Miami Mayor Francis Suarez said the tear gas was fired after officers witnessed two vehicles being looted and vandalized by protestors. He said that other than the gas, there was no clash between protestors and police. Over the weekend, the South Florida community joined in nationwide protests over the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died under the of Minneapolis police. In Lauderhill on Sunday, the Black Lives Matter Alliance Broward, Broward DSA and Broward Dream Defenders are organizing a protest at 3 p.m. Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez issued a countywide curfew of 10 p.m. later in the night. Hallandale Beach later issued a curfew of 11 p.m. The city of Miami will have its own 8 p.m. curfew for Sunday night, but protests are still scheduled to take place in the state. “We wanted to give the protestors the opportunity to express themselves peacefully. We understood there was a tremendous amount of anger – justifiably so – over the despicable act that occurred with George Floyd,” Suarez said. “And, by and large, that’s what they did.” By the end of the night, Miami-Dade Police announced 46 arrests had been made as a result of the protest. Sections of the city were shut down and eventually, police began firing tear gas and pepper spray at a crowd outside the City of Miami Police Department. Protestors were also seen throwing objects at police and setting cars on fire. The protests began peacefully in the afternoon, but as the march went on and the crowds grew, tensions began to mount between residents and members of law enforcement. Defund the police. Close the jails. Shelter for ALL now. In love and rage for George Floyd and all the homies and relatives we have lost at the hands of police and the rebellions lighting the way. Fuck 12. See you Sunday ? pic.twitter.com/i3LPpdhYt6— THEE Miami Dream Defenders (@MiamiSquaDD) May 30, 2020 Locally, in addition to protests in Tampa and Coral Gables, hundreds of protestors gathered at the Torch of Friendship and Biscayne Blvd. in downtown Miami on Saturday, chanting “No justice, no peace. No racist police”. Across major states including California, New York, Georgia, Minnesota, Washington, South Carolina, among others, hundreds of demonstrators lined the streets to protest the killing of George Floyd, and the overall police brutality in America. The protests have also gone global, in cities like London, Berlin, Toronto and Copenhagen. Effective tonight at 10PM through 6AM tomorrow morning, a citywide curfew is in effect. Tomorrow night, Sunday, May 31, the citywide curfew will be in effect from 8PM through 6AM.
