It’s Time To Unplug

April 24, 2019 by Joe Kiedinger

In today’s world of technology at our fingertips, we are exposed constantly to calls, emails, texts, social media messages, LinkedIn invitations and the like. It’s not like the olden days when folks would work a solid eight hours at the office with a landline as their only incoming source of communication. At the end of…

What Message Are You Sending?

What Message Are You Sending?

April 17, 2019 by Joe Kiedinger

Most leaders I speak with in regards to the subject of micromanaging will tell you that they don’t. They believe in “empowering their people to make decisions”. However, when I dig deeper and ask employees if they are micromanaged, many say, “yes”. Their typical response sounds like this, “I just wish they (the leader) would…

Third Time’s a Charm

April 10, 2019 by Joe Kiedinger

I recently went to Florida with my family for spring break. We decided to visit the Everglades and take an air boat tour. It’s quite an experience if you’ve never tried it before. An air boat can travel over just inches of water. For those of you old enough to remember the TV show, Flipper,…

Reshuffle Your Deck

Reshuffle Your Deck

April 3, 2019 by Joe Kiedinger

“I didn’t grow up having role models. I grew up having people I didn’t want to be like and seeing situations I’d never want to be in. Not all of us are dealt the right cards, but that doesn’t mean you can’t reshuffle the deck for a better outcome.” Law of Ambition – Unknown For…

Looking Forward to Change!

March 27, 2019 by Joe Kiedinger

People tend not to handle change very well. As human beings, we’re wired to create routines and want to have our expectations met. When routines go awry or surprises hit, it can throw some of us into a tailspin. We wonder how things came to be this way, what we did to cause this chain…

Feeling Overwhelmed?

Feeling Overwhelmed? I recently visited our cabin up north in Tomahawk, WI. This is a picture of the old outhouse (now a tool shed – thank goodness). The snow in the back of our cabin came up to the bottom of our windows. We truly felt “overwhelmed” (in a comforting way) with snow. It got…

Are You Comfortable Being Uncomfortable?

March 6, 2019 by Joe Kiedinger

I’m embracing winter. March is the month where, for most people around here, spring fever really begins to set in. Recently, the Green Bay area has experienced a series of bitterly cold weeks along with snow, snow and more snow. Sure, I hear people complaining about it, but what good does that do? This picture…

I can’t believe it. I began “Wisdom on Wednesday” 15 years ago this week in 2004. It’s amazing how blogging can help you create a personal diary of your life! This week, I’d like to focus on family! First and foremost, I have an awesome wife who values family time, so when I suggested two…

How do you celebrate success?

February 13, 2019 by Joe Kiedinger

When you think of celebrating success where you work, what comes to mind? Perhaps your mind goes to the company picnic where the president asks everyone to raise a glass and celebrate a year of success. Maybe your office has a party to celebrate a milestone. Corporate America typically celebrates in big ways. What about celebrating…

Human or machine? If you have ever attended Disney Institute you will be reminded that experiences dignify the human spirit. Let’s explore that a little bit. The definition of dignity is to feel worthy of honor and respect. When an employee is included in an experience they feel chosen, worthy and respected. Additionally, it provides…
