Peak Stands Out

 

THANK YOU TO ALL OUR EMPLOYEES!

PEAK EARNS THE BEST EMPLOYER IN CANADA AWARD

 

We are extremely pleased to announce that PEAK has earned the prestigious Kincentric Best Employer in Canada award. Only 20 other Canadian companies have qualified for this title in 2020!

This is great news, especially in this pandemic year, when all our employees are at home and we have had to reinvent the way we work. This recognition is especially important to us because it shows their strong appreciation of the company while adjusting to the reality of the pandemic. 

Kincentric (formerly Aon) recognizes leading employers with the Best Employer award. Ranking is based on a vast, confidential survey across companies everywhere in Canada.

Thanks again to all our employees! Their appreciation shows how much you, the PEAK network advisors, can count on a solid organization to serve your clients.

Marriage Tips To Wrap Up 2020

Will add a few tips that I have been receiving lately, I hope they encourage you and your spouse or perhaps a friend that you share this link with. TLR

Article#1

A simple way to make your spouse's day — and your marriage — better.

"By considering these scenarios, you’ll create more opportunity to use such language elsewhere. Validation is a powerful tool: used correctly, you’re showing your partner not only that you recognize how hard he or she is working, but that you express this appreciation in small, obvious ways. As often, it’s the simplest things that have the biggest results." ....

 Article#2

 https://www.fatherly.com/love-money/traits-all-happily-married-men-share/

 

Article # 3

The first step is to, well, try to be a better husband. We’re not kidding around. The best marriages are those in which both members play active roles, where they not only identify their flaws (i.e. “I invalidate your feelings too much”; “I often bring home work stress”) but also find ways to fix them. In attempting to know yourself better — your strengths, your weaknesses, your sometimes-good-sometimes-bad-tendencies — you will become not just a good husband but an evolving one. In other words: Make an effort, do the work, and you’ll be rewarded. Want to start? Well, there are a number of small, simple things that all of us can focus on to be happier, more present, and more attentive husbands and partners. Like these nine items right here.

Great Wealth Devotion

 PEAK Disclosure - Click to lEarn

"If you want to become wealthy, there are certain things you must understand and certain things you must do. First, you must understand what kind of wealth you’re pursuing and how the economy functions that generates this wealth. Second, you must wisely invest the required resources in order to realize an increase of the wealth the economy produces. These principles hold true whether you’re pursuing wealth in God’s economy or in the world’s economies.

Now, the kind of wealth God’s economy produces and the kind of wealth the world’s economies produce are very different. The former makes us “enriched in every way to be generous in every way” (2 Corinthians 9:11), while the latter threatens to pierce us with “many pangs” (1 Timothy 6:10) and even to steal our soul (Matthew 16:26).

But in either case, we must value (desire) what each economy offers (Matthew 6:19–21), we must understand how each economy works (Luke 16:1–8), and we must invest in ways that take advantage of that economy’s production (Matthew 25:14–30). Obtaining the riches we desire depends on whether or not we meet these conditions.

To those who wish to become truly rich, the Bible offers this astounding promise:" ....

Engaging Training Energy

PEAK Disclosure - Click to Energize Your Knowledge

Great article came intoday that we should review to be able to do our best when engaged in training and learning online ~ TLR

 

https://blog.commonwealth.com/keeping-everyone-engaged-tips-for-virtual-training

 

Give Energy, Get Energy

If people aren’t paying attention to you, it’s hard to keep your own energy levels high—and keep the class engaged. In an in-person class, you could walk around the room to make connections and get people’s attention. But with everyone on mute, it’s difficult to reclaim energy, feed off it, and put it back into the presentation. You need to give energy to get it back. The class will follow. Here’s how to keep the energy going from start to finish from your computer.

Break the ice. As folks filter in, I engage in light, sometimes funny banter that gets people used to speaking and feeling more comfortable. This starts the class in a welcoming way and helps build a connection.

View your voice as a powerful tool. Your voice conveys your excitement—or lack thereof. My virtual presentation voice has more varied highs and lows. It’s much more demonstrative. When one of my questions gets answered, I give very enthusiastic responses, such as “Boom! That’s right!” or “Fantastic answer!”

Give an incentive for responding. Five seconds of silence in a virtual setting is an eternity. I let trainees know I’m cool with letting the uncomfortable silence go on as long as it needs to. This almost always prompts responses because most people hate silence. If that doesn’t do it, I simplify my questions and suggest answers to keep the responses coming.

Now, this turned bold, I have been guilty of this wrong doing, thanks for the reminder Richard. - TLR

Don’t Be Defensive

By Richard Millington on Dec 11, 2018 07:30 am

The moment you get defensive, take insults personally or react badly to criticism you’ve lost the chance of building a positive relationship with that member (and other members who see your response).

Every interaction is a great opportunity to build a stronger relationship, deepen mutual understanding, and find better solutions to community problems.

You shut down those possibilities when you try to defend your own reputation instead of making the other member feel great.

Defensive responses are selfish responses.

The great irony is the best way to improve your reputation is to ignore the personal insults against you and focus on helping other members solve their problems, feel understood, and more appreciated.

It was once said

Came across this article this morning in LinkedIn, I think it is worth a little study. What would be said? Good question. - TLR 

 

 

Need career help? Start writing your own eulogy. When we imagine our own deaths, and even write drafts of the way we’d like to be remembered, we can examine our priorities and goals from a broader perspective. Executive coach Daniel Harkavy encouragesthe CEOs he works with to draft two eulogies: the one that would be read today, and another that encompasses all of their future achievements. Comparing the two can help you reevaluate how you are spending your time and the decisions you are making. • Here’s what people are saying.

 

here is the article 

 https://www.fastcompany.com/90266043/how-vividly-imagining-your-own-death-can-help-your-next-career-move

 

”In that 2005 Stanford commencement address where Jobs talked about the importance of realizing you are going to die, he also stated that, upon reflecting on his success, he realized “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward.”

Yet with the eulogy technique, now maybe you don’t have to wait until the end of your life to connect the dots. By changing your point of view and shifting your perspective from your present to your future, you’ll be able to see where you want to end up, and then know what steps you’ll next to take–what dots you’ll need to connect–to get there.”
