" Appreciative leaders bring the gift of new eyes, penetrating and positive. They hone in on capacities. They lift every voice. But most of all they are agents of knowing life-generating alternatives, lifting up options for better living, and creating webs of inclusion that serve to enlarge our world-making potential at its healthiest."
D.L. Cooperrider

I wrote this after I started my own business in 2007...Passion Transportation, Inc. Having dedicated my heart, soul and "passion" to another company that brought much success to both of us, I was told I was making too much money and they were going to change my commission structure. I was devastated and hurt but determined to turn a very challenging time in my life into a new beginning...I am a 100% Woman-Owned 3PL Corporation and I thank GOD for my ability to prevail.

" Never hire or promote in your own image. It is foolish to replicate your strength and idiotic to replicate your weakness. It is essential to employ, trust, and reward those whose perspective, ability, and judgment are radically different from yours. It is also rare, for it requires uncommon humility, tolerance, and wisdom."
Dee W. Hock

November 2, 2009
" Instead of being more organized or controlling in your approach, allow for serendipity. Happy accidents happen when you look side to side or up, not always forward. Don't stop planning. Rather step out of the tunnel. Put yourself in situations that allow for the unexpected. Life is situationally driven. Learning happens in context. Be ready when opportunities arise. The more space you've cleared in your life for something new, the more right things will happen. More or less."
Marcia Conner --- Submitted by Lauren Covington --- New Jersey
