    Let Them Shine - Recognize THEM: 52 Ways to Recognize Your Employees

    in Business

    Let Them Shine is the fourth category in my book titled Employee Recognition: 52 Ways to Recognize Your Employees in Ways They Value.


    Shine is an adjective, defined as to give forth or glow with a light; shed or cast light. Imagine not only this sentence but this reality in your company:


    We strive to shine lights on the stars of our company - our employees - whose strengths, talents and successes are the foundation for our shared successes, today and tomorrow.


    Here is another definition: to be bright with reflected light, glisten, sparkle.


    Each employee is positioned to shine not only with our company but with all of our vendors, partners and customers. As they shine, our company shines.


    Far too many companies are like the farmer whose land sits on top of a diamond field. As they toil in the hot sun, battling the weather and the economy, the rising costs of fertilizer and tractors they ignore the diamonds on which they walk.


    You’re looking for ways to uncover those diamonds around you, beside you, on the floors above and below you. You know that if you let them shine, if you shine your light on their brilliance, your company will glisten in the marketplace. 


    The metaphor is almost over the top. But employee recognition is nothing more than shining your light of appreciation on those who build your company, providing a place for their own light of strengths and talents to shine and be seen and appreciated.


    In this last category, I've listed 13 ways to help you shine your light on your employees, let them shine their light of achievements and engagement. I've added a few quotes to keep you inspired along the way.

    Hills and Hops with Mike Skeen From Pikes Peak

    in Automotive

                       What goes better together then cars and drinking....wait, maybe that came out wrong.  How about just kicking back and talking about cars and the automotive world while you enjoy a stiff drink, tasty brew, or a fancy cocktail?  Awww thats better.  We will attempt to cover all those bases in this show we present to you on Fridays!  What the hell is going in new cars and the automotive culture in general?  Find out with Matt and Jay every week, oh yeah and enjoy a night cap:)


    This week we talk about the "the hill" better known as Pikes Peak where every year hundreds of vehicles ranging from super bikes to wildly modified semi tractors try to rocket up the 12 mile 156 turn run to the summit faster than any in their class. The standing record is 8:13.878 set in 2013 by 9 time WRC champ Sebastien Loeb.  While we don't expect that to fall, we do expect some amazing action out here.  We run into current Pirelli World Challenge pilot Mike Skeen, and talk about his attempt this year on the hill in his insane Nissan GTR (Pikes Peak Special) - Braking up hill, and packing a parachute! 


    We end the episode talking about our favorite summer time brews in the venerable full body IPAs.  If it was good enough for pirates it's good enough for us!  


    Keep up with conversation as always on Twitter @thewheelmenshow, and with all the visuals and stories on our Facebook page here: http://www.Facebook.com/thewheelmen  Please "Follow", "Like", and review us anywhere you can.

Following will be Don, aka MeanEvilConservative http://www.youtube.com/user/meanevilconservative He's a fellow Virginian with a few years of raising chickens, ducks, and quail. Whether it's laying hens or meat birds, he has a pretty good knowledge of what it takes to raise them. And to close out the show, we'll have PetPrepper  http://www.youtube.com/user/PetPrepper she’s been grooming animals for over 20 years and can give you some insight on dealing with extreme cold. She's pretty far north and has been working on ways to prevent frozen eggs.

    With the cost of eggs and chicken in the stores, and the uncertainty of exactly where they came from or what they have been fed, I’d like to start raising my own chickens. But unlike gardening, I know very little about chickens. I know barbecue wings with ranch dressing make a great snack. And I know that I don’t like my yolks runny. Beyond that, I’m clueless. I have so many questions. What breed is best for egg layers? What breed is best for meat? What is the best method for raising them…free range or a coop? How well do the chicken tractors work? Are there any foods that a chicken shouldn’t eat? How do you take care of them in the winter? I could do some research online and maybe get some answers. But I’d prefer to hear from someone with first-hand experience. Join us on this edition of "Preparing to Provide" for what promises to be a very informative and entertaining discussion about all things pertaining to chickens.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Lisa Engelken!

    in Music

    Okay, let's be honest - if this story isn't made for the wide screen - or at least a Lifetime movie - I don't know WHAT is!  First, Lisa Engelken is the youngest of THIRTEEN children - from Big Skies, Kansas (this is a real place) :)  Lisa's natural tendency to sing surfaced in places that many of us wouldn't deem as familiar...riding tractors, tying balls of hay, weeding the tomato garden, milking the family cow - you get the picture.  


    Along the way, this determined and multi-talented Country Girl became a "Cosmopolitan" - the name of Lisa's first Jazz vocal album.  Here's what else happened along the way: Operatic and theatrical training (making use of that three-octave range!), a high level of education including a MA in Italian Literature, SINGING in Italian - and French and Portuguese.  An award-winning performance in a noted San Francisco stage presentation of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" - in which Lisa played Yitzhak!  If you know the play, then you're laughing :-O  Wait - I'm not done! Lisa co-founded two popular groups in the Washington, D.C., area - then made a move to New York - then San Fran.  By this time, she was stoned in love with Jazz - but had a foray with a Pop/Rock band called the Sugar La Las.  Hah!


    Fast forward to 2010 - what a year.  Our fabulous singer lost a brother and that would have been painful enough.  But she was also involved in a serious car accident - in which she was thrown (and landed on her head!)  Thank goodness that there was good news involved during this time...the release of the wonderfully received, "Caravan."  


    In these past three years, Lisa has been able to grow an audience that is stunning - and new fans are gathering with her latest release, "Little Warrior."  Let's get to know this amazing Lady better - she's with us in hour two!

    Well, help has arrived! To get questions to these answers and many more, I have enlisted the help of Paul Wheaton. Many of you may know Paul from his extensive list of YouTube videos about rocket stoves. Tags: MHPgardener, Gardening, vegetables, Farming, Prepper Broadcasting.
