With this in mind, always know you’re not the first person to feel the way you do in the situation you’re in. Here are a few things to remember when having to tackle a tough conversation.Be preparedWhen you have to engage in a difficult conversation, always be prepared. You may not be able to plan out what you want to say word for word, but it will help to jot down a few notes. Know that the conversation isn’t going to go exactly the way you think it will, and that’s okay. Be clear and keep it simple. You know the objective of the conversation so just make sure you keep it on track.Be in the right mindsetYou may know beforehand that it’s going to be difficult but try and put a positive spin on it. Instead of focusing on the negatives involved in the conversation, focus on the positives that will result. Whether that be for the individual or the company, it should make things better.Take a deep breathStay calm. Collect your thoughts and gather your focus. The more you stay centered, the easier the conversation will be. It’s easy to get flustered during a disagreement and difficult conversations often lead to this. Keep your head and stay cool.Be consistentMake sure similar situations with different employees are handled the same way. You don’t want to show perceived favoritism. Stay consistent so your employees know where you stand in regards to employee accountability.Gain perspectiveAsk your employee how they feel about the situation and get an understanding of their viewpoint. This way, they know you care even if there’s not an easy resolution. Just remember to listen well and let your employee speak their mind.last_img read more

Seniors participated in different exercises for a few hours. Over one hundred  seniors packed into the Alpena Senior Center. “Some people need more leg strength, some need more arm strength, so it just depends on their situation,” said Cindy Josey. “We try to cover it all.”Josey is the in–home service coordinator at the center. She designs simple exercises to help seniors continue leading active lives each week, whether that’s through curls, raises, or utilizing bands.“Our group keeps growing and growing… it’s just really good to see, and during the exercises, I mentioned that we had more men than we’ve had in as long as I’ve been doing this,” said Josey.The exercises and stretches help build balance, strength, and flexibility. Not only are seniors growing in all of these physical aspects, they grow socially as well.“A lot of them do have a great social life, but some don’t, so this is a great place for them to come and meet new people and do fun things,” said Josey.These little exercises, tips, and friends can help them age gracefully in life.The seniors also had the chance to ask questions and learn different tips to staying safe while being active. Andrew Doubek from Thunder Bay Therapy answered these questions and provided advice for the group. Both before and after exercise, the center offered healthy food options for the seniors to enjoy.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alpena Senior Center, exercise, healthy eating, National Senior Health and Fitness Day, Senior Center, senior livingContinue ReadingPrevious Michigan State Police cracks down over Memorial Day weekendNext MSP Sergeant save toddler from being hit by a dump trucklast_img read more
