Dealing With The Cards You’re Dealt

Dealing With The Cards You’re Dealt

Planning ahead for 2018 with your resources

Did you know when you shuffle a deck of cards that the new order of cards is unprecedented? It’s unique and you are the first person in history to have made that order of cards.


Let’ s draw a similarity with your team and your workplace. Your team and workplace are also unique. Just like cards you’ll find that you have not been dealt a Royal Flush. But the secret is to work with what you’ve got and strive to make it better.

Have you ever observed people playing bridge? Even if they have been dealt a poor hand, they work fervently improving their hand.

In a nutshell, this course will help participants shift from complaining to proactively making the workplace more cohesive and effective.

Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her; but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game.

~ Voltaire (1694 – 1778)
