In his bestseller, “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”, Stephen R Covey outlines how Nazi survivor Viktor Frankl discovered what he called the “last human freedom“.  This was the freedom we all have to choose our response to any stimulus.  Frankl believed that in between the Stimulus and the Response, lies “space” or time.   This is time to choose your response to what has happened.  In our workplaces today, we encounter situations, co-workers and supervisors that challenge us.  Our gift, is that there is time to choose how we respond.  Those workers, and Supervisors who use that space and the Freedom to Choose their response, can contribute to a winning workplace culture.  The last human freedom is our Freedom to Choose for the betterment of the relationship and our own self improvement.

Gloria Steinem once said that dreaming is a form of planning.  Steven Covey in the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People said that all things are created twice.  There is the mental or the first creation and then the physical or second creation.

Change is inevitable.  Organizations that embrace change, even seek it out by creating visions of their future and then working towards these visions, are organizations that survive.  At the Princeton Skills Centre we are 20 years strong and are embracing our Vision 2020 mental creation of our next phase.  We’re dreaming, planning, and changing.  This is going to be an exciting time
