Replying to LO22893 --

I would like to join the conversation on daydreaming. For the past three
months, I have been working as a Training Coordinator for a very
traditionally run high-tech manufacturing company. My background is a
Masters in Adult and Organizational Learning and leadership and community
service training. My company is plagued with communication and other
problems, and I am constantly striving to think of a positive leadership
approach for teaching communication. Quite often, I leave work
frustrated,but committed to finding a positive approach. During my
half-hour drive home, I am frequently struck with the answer! Example, if
I can't get managers to listen to employees, I can get employees to model
the desired behavior by proving they are listening to their managers.
Now, when I have managers come to speak at trainings, I ask the employees
what feedback they would like to give them. I list their responses and
share them with managers. Apparently, feedback of this sort is an
entirely new phenomenon at this company. I would recommend driving and
listening to the car radio for coming up with solutions to perplexing
