Rats and the Citi

Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at amazing Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, a recertification rodent workshop was presented by Lipha Tech’s John Murphy in Citi’s state-of-the-art Auditorium. After the Seminar, we watched the Mets play the Nationals in our own private party room at Modell’s Clubhouse. The beer, wine and soft drinks flowed while we feasted on peanuts, popcorn, chips, hot dogs, burgers, pasta salad and cookies. What a great opportunity to meet and greet on this memorable night!
Our friend, Dr. Bill Lampton at Championship Communication thought our audience would enjoy this article about the 4 best ways a leader communicates effectively with his or her people and asked that we share it. It’s a result of extensive interviews by the Harvard Business School. Enjoy!

It used to be so easy for a chief executive. He could develop strategic objectives and send them down to the ranks as directives, confident that employees would make his desires reality.

They come by air, land, and filth flagrantly violating our public health laws. These flying infections criminally move pathogens from filth to food.

They vector diseases such as dysentery, gastroenteritis, tuberculosis, and intestinal-worms. Spotting is produced when feeding and defecating. These law-breakers each produce 16 to 31 spots in 24 hours. They harbor up to 6 million external bacteria and 25 million internal bacteria.
