Red is the New Green

June 11th, 2014 by Robert Ringstrom

Stopping for red lights has become optional.  I remember a time when running a red light was taken seriously.  If a cop saw you, he gave you a ticket.  Sometimes they’d ambush you at a particularly dangerous intersection.  They might give you a warning if traffic […]

Leaders Don’t Comand A Title

June 4th, 2014 by Robert Ringstrom

A leader of any organization is often the one baring the title of directer or owner.  Depending on the industry, the leader is given a rank; such as captain or CEO.  They are individuals who have risen to that position generally because they have demonstrated the means […]

Failure: The Key To Success

May 20th, 2014 by Robert Ringstrom

The biggest tragedies can reveal the best in us.  Failure can be scary.  Financial mistakes always generate a pit in the stomach.  Emotional letdowns can be severely depressing.   Missing a personal goal that was once passionately pursued can become a crushing defeat.  And the bigger the […]

Decision Making in the Corner Pocket

May 8th, 2014 by Robert Ringstrom

If the Spirit Moves you, so be it.  If things are as good as they can get within a limited time frame; it’s your move to make.  I have come to recognize that I tend to have a somewhat volatile character trait.  I’m extremely, or highly […]

When Leaders Lose Their Focus

April 26th, 2014 by Robert Ringstrom

Amazon recently made news with its plan of offering employees cash-buyouts as an incentive to quit.  If an employee would rather take $2,000 in cash and quit at the end of the first year, it just might be an indication of poorly connected employees.  Workplace engagement […]

  The Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association gathers for a conference under the banner of the Executive Training Institute (ETI) to build onto and strengthen law enforcement’s relationship with those they serve.  This year’s  ETI theme was Enhancing the Bond of Trust.   As a retired police […]

Minimum Wage for Paperboys

March 27th, 2014 by Robert Ringstrom

I think most of us can recall the excitement and anticipation of getting a job; especially your first job.  At least that’s how I felt about being a paperboy. It was the excitement and the anticipation of doing something so adult-like!  I was driven by the […]

Edward Snowden; Technically Adept but….

March 20th, 2014 by Robert Ringstrom

Edward Snowden was charged with espionage and theft of government property in June of 2013.  This followed his disclosure of thousands of classified documents from world governments, but principally the intelligence gathering US National Security Agency.  He’s been stamped as a traitor and a thief, as well as a […]

Workplace Bullying: A Legal Responsibility?

March 9th, 2014 by Robert Ringstrom

Are hostile workplaces illegal?  Should they be?    It depends; laws at the state and federal level don’t prohibit Workplace Bullying, as long as it does not constitute discrimination or certain types of harassment.  A few months ago, many of us were surprised that this could […]
