Jingle bells

No matter where you go, some gremlin thinks up something to make you smile. Congratulations, Edeka.

Edeka is Germany’s largest supermarket chain. They hid 13 cameras and as customers stood at checkout counters, lights went off, but cashiers continued to scan items through the checkout. That’s when cashiers’ machines began to beep a very familiar tune!

The cashiers choreographed the holiday classic, ‘Jingle Bells’ to the delight of their customers.



Click on the video button and begin the video and let us all try to be gremlins.

Talking Stick

Encouraging Communication with a Stick!

Looking to encourage team members more freely share ideas and concerns? Discover (and learn from) viewpoints different from yours?

Consider using a talking stick.

The talking stick has been used for centuries by many Native American tribes to provide a just and impartial hearing which allows all voices to be heard. Used in council circles, it designated who had the right to speak.

When matters of great concern came before the council, the leading elder would hold the talking stick and begin. When he finished what he had to say, he would hold out the talking stick, and whoever wanted to speak after him would take it. The stick was passed from one individual to another until all who wished to speak had done so.

The talking stick not only kept order, it fostered mutual integrity. Holding the stick assured free speech, no reprisals, no humiliation and no interruptions.

But with the stick also came responsibility. Speakers were charged with speaking wisely and truthfully. If they couldn't, they'd be quiet or bring dishonor to themselves.

Imagine the benefits a talking stick could bring to departmental or team or family meetings. It wouldn't matter whether you passed a stick, coffee mug, ballpoint pen, wrench, or whatever. What's important is honoring mutual integrity and the unstated assumption everyone seeks to understand a much larger perspective. So, give it a try - using these tips:

Identify one or more focus questions to address. Encourage participants to speak freely.

Form an actual circle, which fosters equality and participation.

Introduce the talking stick and state guidelines:
a. Anyone may speak with no interruptions and no humiliation.
b. Only the person holding the stick can talk. Each speaker must be truthful.
c. When everyone has spoken, summarize what has been said and explain what you will do with the information.

For most people, this experience seldom happens in corporate or family life and might very well become a critical retention tool, a source for innovation and competitive advantage. Or healing family strife.
