As an employee, there are always things that we dislike about our boss. Because our boss is human and they don’t think exactly like we do. There is another aspect to this situation. Most people have no idea what it is like to be a boss. The responsibility. The demands. The questions and situations that do not have happy answers. They are real.

We need to be employees that consider what our boss has to do. And we need to be nice about it. And as a boss, there are ways to get the best out of people. The best bosses are not necessarily the smartest bosses. The best bosses are not necessarily the hardest working bosses. They are the ones who know how to get the most from their employees. And that has never been a whip that does that.

I read in the April 2018 Toastmaster magazine about the I.N.S.P.I.R.E. feedback model. Because all fantastic bosses listen to feedback from their peers, their bosses, and their employees. This method is supposed to help draw attention to performance issues, encourage mutual discussion, and confirm commitment to new behavior with short, specific conversations.

INITIATE. Initiate the conversation respectfully. Feedback is best received when you’ve been welcomed to provide it. Initiate conversations as close to the moment of concern as possible. Example: “I need to talk with you today. Is this a convenient time or would you prefer this afternoon?”

NOTICE. Share an observation about a behavior. “In listening to your calls, I’ve noticed you struggle to connect with the customer.”

SPECIFIC SUPPORT: Provide specific, supporting evidence you can actually see, such as, “When the customer told you he was calling to disconnect his line because his spouse had died, you said only that you would be happy to disconnect the line. You did not show empathy.”

PROBE: After you present the situation, the other person needs a chance to talk. As a question in a neutral, curious tone to allow them to share any relevant information. “What happened?” works and allows the person to share information or to own the situation.

INVITE: Once they had a chance to share their thoughts, invite the employee to solve the problem. Start with a review of the expectations and then, “What are your thoughts on how we can resolve this?”

REVIEW: As one or two open – ended questions to check for understanding, and then one close – ended question to secure commitment. Like “How would your results be better if you did that every time?” and “Is this your commitment going forward?” Ask the employee to review their specific commitment, “Let’s recap what you’ll do next time, when you’re faced with a similar situation.”

ENFORCE: Enforce the behavior and why it’s important while reinforcing your confidence that the employee can do this. “I appreciate you taking the time to make this happen” or “Thank you for your work and commitment.”

Seems like good advice for all of us. In work. And with our family.

Hope to see you at the Fajita (chicken), Margarita (virgin), Loteria (bingo) night on July 22. It’s $10 a plate with the proceeds going to Main Street Guymon and the Loteria cards are $1 a game, with ½ going to the winner and ½ to Main Street Guymon. The fun starts at 4 and ends at 7 pm. It takes place at the RC Party Room, 5th and Main.

And Friday evening is our Summer Aggie Family Pot Luck and Game Night with the OPSU Football players who are here this summer. If you would like to join, bring some food and your favorite game. We meet at 6 pm at the OPSU ballroom. For more information call Melyn at 338-6246.

See you on the bricks!

This morning feels like a ramble on type of day. My mind is flitting and not really focused. It’s always interesting in my head on these days. Like a cornucopia of thoughts.

Read this recently and it made sense. “If you want to be included, get involved.” If you’re wanting to be someplace that doesn’t want to be inclusive, find another place. Find a kinder, nicer group of folks with which to work and / or play. Don’t worry about people who are not worrying about you. Just do it. It’s like me wanting to lose weight, but I don’t have a sensible diet nor do I exercise. That means I don’t want to lose weight enough to do what I should be doing. Be honest. And if you really want to get involved and you don’t know where to start, come by my office sometime and let’s visit. My office is at 116 NE 5th Street. And, no, it isn’t open all the time. If I have to do errands, go to a meeting, eat lunch, or visit Main Street members, the office is empty. So, a smart person will call ahead. The number is 580-338-6246.

If you’re a movie goer, here’s a little Oklahoma Trivia. The new Pitch Perfect 3 movie has Muskogee native Ester Dean playing Cynthia Rose in the movie. It’s a wonder you’ve been functioning well without knowing that. But it’s better now that you know.

Here’s a blurb with a great photo of a little kid holding a plate with a piece of apple pie. “Baking is a valuable life skill that helps kids learn math, create delicious food, and even possibly earn an income one day. At the Bethany (Okla.) Library’s free Apple Pie Time class, chefs ages nine and up can practice following instructions, measuring ingredients, and putting together a treat to take home and bake under their parent’s supervision.” Good job to the library for doing this. But, really, as a parent this is something you need to be doing with your kids. And even better, when they get fairly proficient, then they can just cook supper and you won’t have to worry about it. Worked for me.

Missy was nine years old when she made the first family supper all by herself. It wasn’t fancy. Spaghetti and green beans. But she was proud. I was proud. And the hungry family was fed. Now she’s a math teacher. It all made sense after I read that blurb.

Our library has a lot of great programs going this summer. Be sure to go to their facebook page and check out their events. They are things for all ages and most of them have little or no cost. They have a free movie on the 17th that looks really interesting. “Dancing in Jaffa” is shown at 4 pm. Bring your own popcorn, I’m thinking. Bring me some, too.

The Y has a teen night for just $5 on the July 13 and 20. Call them or go to their facebook to find out more about these evenings of fun.
Good places to get included.

Let’s go back to the parenting ideas. Make it a point each evening before bed or at the dinner table to tell an interesting fact about someone in your family. Help your children know their roots. We know things and we forget to share them. Introduce your kids or grands to their family.
When my preschool kids were starting to learn their numbers, I took them several times to play bingo in Goodwell. Back then the firemen, I think, had bingo night. The kids each got a card and they had fun. And they learned their numbers faster. Cool, huh? Who would have thought you could justify bingo night so easily?

On July 22 is a Mexican Bingo night. The cards don’t have numbers, but pictures. It’s called Loteria. And it is happening from 4 – 7 pm at RC Party Room at 5th and Main. You can eat chicken fajitas for $10 a plate and drink virgin Margaritas. We thought it sounded so good “Fajitas, Margaritas, Loteria” but we wanted it to be a family event and we don’t have a liquor license. So, no booze in the margaritas. It works. Join us! We would love to include you in this fun family night, a fund raiser for Main Street Guymon. You can work on your vocabulary … Spanish or English or both because the caller will be calling in both languages. Loteria cards are $1 each that goes to the pot and the winners of each game split ½ of the pot, with the rest going to Main Street Guymon.

Did you hear that Main Street Guymon was named the Best of the Best Service Group? Wow. Thank you to all who voted for our Main Street volunteers. They work hard and they deserve recognition! Join us. We would love to include you.

See you on the bricks.

Sometimes people who are ignorant just irritate me so much.

Sometimes I’m one of those ignorant people.

Maybe more than sometimes.

The phone rang this morning and one of my board members was here helping me do some things and I was rude to the person on the phone because I believed they were another one of those persistent sales calls. Then as I was hanging up, they said something that makes me now think they were actually trying to tell me something to help me out. But too late, the finger hung up on the caller. How stupid can I be? Obviously, I have proven in many, many ways.

It hurts to be truthful about yourself. But it sure is easier to be less judgmental if you are first honest about who you are and your failings … and your good attributes, too.

There is one comment that makes me put someone in the “not to spend time with” category faster than anything. When a person says, “There isn’t anything to do around here,” it makes my skin crawl. Generally, that is someone who hasn’t worked at putting anything on … the best they do is tell doers what they wish they were doing while the whiner continues to just sit and whine. Generally, they aren’t helping plan and implement new activities. And, generally, they still sit on their butt when there is something to do, not getting up enough gumption to attend.

So, my conclusion is they prefer to do nothing and whine. Not having anything to do is just one of their favorite whines.

Sound harsh? Maybe. But, I find there are way more things that I would like to attend than I have time for. My energy level can’t keep up with my “wish list” to attend things happening around town. And if I’m wanting some fun, or company, and don’t see anything going on … I invite people over and we DO SOMETHING. And that something does not include whining.

Wow, I’ve been whining for about three paragraphs now, haven’t I? Bad.

The YMCA has a co-ed flag football league, a women’s volleyball league, and teen nights going on. All fun and you don’t have to be good to join. Just be enjoyable. Check out the Y, give them a call or drop by and check out what’s going on at the Y.

Jennifer Reynolds has taken ahold of the Kindness Project, which involves painting rocks and hiding them in plain sight for people to find. These rocks make you smile. I know because they left some near my flowers here at the Main Street Guymon office. Jennifer has a painting class on Sunday, July 8, at my office from 2 – 4 pm for those who would like to join in the fun. Jennifer brings all the goods and there is no cost. Now that’s cool. To learn more, contact Jennifer at

The Guymon Library has several free teen movies (but I think I would enjoy them, too … and plan to go). “A Wrinkle in Time” is on July 9 at 6 pm. “Dancing with Jaffa” is on July 17 from 4 – 6 pm. Both are free, and both are good shows.

And mark on your calendar for the Fajitas, Margaritas, and Loteria, a Main Street Guymon fund raiser. The fajitas are chicken, the margaritas are virgin, and the loteria is like bingo. It’s $10 for a plate of fajitas, $1 a loteria card (with half going back in for the winner’s pot) and it takes place on July 22 from 4 – 7 pm at RC Party Room, 5th and Main.

It’s July. What goals do you have for this month?

See you on the bricks!

My father is 79 years old and can out work most people I know. So, I wouldn’t call him old. And if you were talking to him, I doubt that you would have the nerve to call him that either. He’s a big man. Literally.

When he was in the workforce, he had a pretty important job. People from several attended his retirement party. My kids used to watch him on TV. He never made a big deal out of it, it was just what he did. He didn’t pass around the magazine articles written about him in the trade journals or anything. It was no big deal to him, but he worked hard to be good at his job. All of his life he worked hard.

Then he retired.

And he did some things he loved like volunteering at the Museum of Natural History. He earned his certification in paleontology and was always talking about stones and bones.

Recently he purchased a home in Gruver and he’s about to close on the house and moved from Denver to be nearer to family. It makes me happy. For 10 years I have been trying to get him to see the sense in doing such. But what I want and what he wants don’t always happen to be the same, or at the same time. That’s true of so many things with our parents.

As we visited last time he was here, I told him how happy it made me. He said it made him happy, too. He was glad that he would be living around family and would have the great grandkids games to go to, family BBQs and whatever other reasons we find (almost weekly) to get together.

“You don’t know how bad it is to not feel relevant anymore,” Papa said.

Pondering this statement for many weeks now, I think it is important that I listen to Papa.

If you make your job your definition of yourself, what happens when you retire? You don’t just disappear. Or do you?

If you have not gotten to know your children and grandchildren and built a relationship, what happens when you retire? You may feel like you missed your chance at a relationship. Or can you build one now?

If you have only cultivated friends through work, who do you do things with when stop working?

If your job gives you a feeling of importance, when you retire do you become unimportant?

My conclusion for today because we all know that it might be a different conclusion in a month or two, is that it is important to do a good job. There is self – respect in knowing that you have given value to your employers, to your community. But there is family that needs an equal or more amount of your respect and energy. Know them, work together so that you are a team and friends.

Treasure and treat your life long friends as you would gold. If you don’t have any friends outside of family and work, find some. Join a bridge club. Become a Scout Master. Join the church. Invite a friend to go to a play with you. Or better yet, be in one of the plays.

Find your worth in several places. At work, at home with the family, with your friends, and out in the community.

And while doing this, I think we become more interesting. More fun. More versatile.

It’s never too late to improve ourselves or our lives. Let’s get on it.

See you on the bricks!

There are so many people in Texas County who have served our country in the military, whether it be the Navy or the Army or the Air Force or whatever. And whether they were shot at or not, they were willing to serve and they took that chance. They were willing. They were there. They were ready.

The veterans banners on Main Street are wonderful. They make me proud. I don’t know all those folks and if you consider the one who fought for the Confederacy, we don’t all have the same political beliefs. But it doesn’t matter. I honor them. Every one of them.

Speaking to one friend who served, he said that he was never in danger and didn’t feel like he deserved to be on a banner. In my opinion, he’s wrong. He deserves one. His children deserve to look up as they are driving down our Main Street and seeing their fathers photo up there on a banner.

Jim Norris and the American Legion are offering something very important here. They are giving us a chance to build pride in our community, to honor those who have earned the right to be honored for their service … whether you like them personally or not.

So, if you belong to a church or to an organization or if you have a group of friends. If there is a veteran amongst you (living or dead, doesn’t matter), make a point of getting their banner up. The cost is $150 and it is a pretty simple process.

The veterans need to have lived in Texas County at some point in their lives. Call Jim Norris and let’s see more of our veterans hanging on those light poles. Let’s line the entire Main Street. We have people who deserve this.

The Guymon Daily Newspaper ran a list of veterans for Veterans Day … take a look at those many pages of names and help get them all honored.

We have a strong tradition of patriotism in the Panhandle. Let’s pass that on to our youngsters. The veterans banner program is one way to do so.

Thanks, Jim Norris, for giving our community this chance. We appreciate it.

And if you want to see a map of the banners, who is hanging where, the City of Guymon made one and it is posted on the front window at the Main Street Guymon office, 116 NE 5th Street.

There are some days you just can’t catch a break.

There are days when you just aren’t impressed with yourself.

There are days when you wish you could just send yourself outside to play.

You know what I’m talking about, right?

An article entitled “Dealing with Challenging Personalities” looked pretty interesting to me and I decided to read it. It’s in the May Toastmasters magazine.

It started out, “We all know them: the club members who irritate, agitate, and aggravate others. Maybe it’s their strong personality or annoying behavior…. They are maddening!” And then the article proceeded to talking about the personalities and how to work with them.

  1. They named seven type of maddening members.
  2. The Over – Talker. This person “talks endlessly, barely stopping to breathe in conversation, unaware that their listener has zoned out and lost interest. They can come across as opinionated, disrespectful, and extremely self – absorbed.
  3. The Recruiter. He uses every opportunity for “a personal networking or proselytizing event to market their own business or evangelize their own faith. Every conversation and comment is sprinkled with a thinly veiled attempt to gain more clients or converts.
  4. “The Googler is the know it all, the self – proclaimed (and often prideful) keeper of all knowledge. They may know a lot of people. They may be name droppers. They many have memorized every aspect of Robert’s Rules of Order. They protest incorrect procedures, or pontificate about ‘why we must do this.’ They can come across as pretentious and inflexible.”
  5. The High Conflict person is toxic. They “exhibit behavior consistent with narcissism and histrionic, borderline and antisocial personality disorders. They argue, debate, even intimidate. They often initiate, escalate, and perpetuate conflict, usually with themselves at the center. They blame others and will not take responsibility for their part in a conflict. They think people are either with them or against them, or 100 percent good or 100 percent bad. If anyone is against them, they’re forever against them. They can be explosive and unpredictable, and will try to gather allies in their conflicts, often creating division in a group.
  6. “The Latecomer is consistently late. When on the agenda, their tardiness causes last minute role shuffling. Even if they are not on the agenda, their arrival is disruptive and distracting.
  7. “The Gossiper delights in passing along juicy information about someone else. The information may be true, but it’s rarely flattering. Gossips speculate, criticize, and divide.
  8. “The Eccentric is unusual, quirky, or peculiar. They just seem out of step with conventional standards. Maybe they dress differently, have an unusual habit, or are hyperfocused on a specific topic. Other may think they are mentally deficient, but they are not. In Eccentrics: A Study of Sanity and Strangeness, psychiatrist David Weeks writes how eccentrics are often physically healthier and significantly happier than ‘normal’ people. He says they typically exhibit five similar characteristics: they are nonconformist, creative, intensely curious, idealistic, and unconcerned with how they contrast with conventional culture. Their presence can be unsettling to some.”

I don’t know about you, but I saw myself in about half of those people. I thought maybe I should read the part on how to deal with them, but then I changed my mind. I think I’m stuck with myself. If I haven’t learned in 58 years how to deal with myself, it doesn’t seem likely.
Lots happening this summer. What are you looking forward to?

I’ll see you on the bricks!

My mother is a beautiful 80 – year – old woman. She’s married to Bob and she is smart as a whip. She is also half a step from being a perfectionist and being raised by her wasn’t easy, although she certainly tried to teach me how to work hard and well and to be socially acceptable. I wasn’t always a good learner.

Mama is different these days than she was when I was young. She is more accepting and more forgiving, more positive and just generally more relaxed. And I like the new Mama.

The last couple of months she has had yet another transformation.

She has fallen in love.


Head over heels.

She is crazy about Walter.

She calls me sometimes to tell me the wonderful things that Walter does.

Walter is a rescue Schnauzer who has found the good life. Mama feeds him and waters him, has a backyard that he owns, and he has the run of her immaculately clean house. She buys him toys and any day I’m expecting a collar with jewels. We’ll see. Last night he slept with Mom and Bob … under the blankets. Yes, she called and told me.

Who is this person that used to be my mom? I don’t know, but I really enjoy her. Probably not as much as Walter does, but close.

When we get to retirement age and go on into retirement, it is a life change that we really need to prepare for.

Recently I read an article that a man wrote about his retirement. H decided to devote more time to photography; reread One Hundred Years of Solitude and every mystery written by Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler; and to learn the guitar riff or the first 10 bars of every Beatles song. And he did all that and then said he had a “what now?” moment.

“I had simply spent more time indulging existing talents and interests,” said James Petersen. “And none of those goals took me out of the house, involved other people, or kept me connected. I was no longer taking risks.

“The learning curve, I realized, should lead somewhere.” He explained further. “A friend who took up online dating apparently mixed up his likes and dislikes in his profile. It took him months to notice that the women he was meting were drawing him into activities he had previously avoided – and that he was enjoying himself.

“The learning curve should lead you out of the house.

“I have attended Story Slams … sat in intimate Irish pubs being moved to laughter or tears or heartache by the sound of human voices.

“Find a microphone. Tell your story. This campfire has been burning for millennia. It is human connection in its purest form, the exact opposite of what often happens in social media.

“For most of my life I was inclined toward adrenaline sports, velocity. Then I inherited a garden. Over the past few years I have built a vocabulary and a library of reference books. I’ve started a calendar, photographing the arrival of bluebells, lilies, wood anemones, lobelias, bleeding hearts, astilbes. If this is July, that must be echinacea. I have seen plants change in the course of a day. I have sat in the backyard watching the fireflies rise.

“To be on the learning curve you must be willing to be a beginner again, to wrestle with skills not entirely under your control.”

Facing a challenge ignites the brain. To have full engagement, focus, and enjoyment, you have to tackle challenges that are just beyond your abilities, that are new.

Feeling challenged? Wondering what you can do that is new? Want to visit about volunteering? Would love to talk to you about it!

One of the challenges that might be perfect is to get involved with the Guymon Community Theatre. They have a play this weekend. Go check it out.

You might challenge yourself to expanding your culinary skills. Virgil Gibson is teaching a cooking glass through the All Fired Up Gallery on May 31.

Think on it. This could be great fun.

And I hope I’ll see you on the bricks while you’re pondering!

Last week a busy week and this week is going to be even more fun. Thought I would share some oddball tidbits of information that are floating around in my head and really causing a little havoc in there. Maybe if I share it, then there will be a little more order up there.
One of the Aggie Baseball Families went to Dodge City to see the OPSU baseball players play. Now that’s cool. Just knowing that there are people who care enough to do such nice things makes me happy.
Not sure if I shared these science sayings already. If I did, they’re probably worth being told again. I told a chemistry joke. There was no reaction.
Thank you to those who have brought in vases for us to reuse. We have a couple of small boxes so far. We could sure use some more! So maybe you would consider cleaning out the cupboard with all those glass vases saved from when the old boyfriend would send flowers.
Hey, baby. I got my ion you.
The Pub on the Bricks is one of my favorite Main Street Guymon members. And last week I ordered the chicken fajita wrap. It was delicious! You should try one.
Are you full of beryllium, gold, and titanium? Because you are BeAuTifull!
If you’re wanting to try something new this Pioneer Days, take the kids and visit the Point Rock Riders camp on the evening of May 3. The Chamber of Commerce has all the information on Pioneer Days that you need. But, before you call them, print off the Schedule of Events at
My teacher threw sodium chloride at me. That’s a salt.
The Rodeo Queen Luncheon is Thur., May 3, at Top Value Market starting at 11:30 am. Meet the queens. They’re friendly and interesting coming from states all across the nation. The Pioneer Day Breakfast is at 5:30 on Sat., May 5, and is one of my favorite events to attend. Go there and then register as an Old Timer at the Methodist Church from 7 – 9 am. You get done just in time to watch the parade that starts at 9:30 am.
I blew up my chemistry experiment. Oxidants happen.
Did you know the Pioneer Day Rodeo is one of the best outdoor professional rodeos in the nation? Right here in our backyard! Even the TV show Criminal Minds knows that and chose to have the rodeo clown episode take place in “the sleepy town of Guymon, Oklahoma.” We’re famous and we owe it all to the volunteers through the Chamber who make it happen. The rodeo takes place Fri., May 4, at 7:30 pm; Sat., May 5, at 2 and 7:30 pm; and Sun., May 6, at 2 pm. It costs $20 at the gate, but if you go by Dizzy B’s or Bank of the Panhandle or PTCI or Farm Credit in Guymon, or TCEC in Hooker, you can get advance tickets at $15. But don’t be ignorant and think the advance tickets continue to be on sale after the rodeo starts. Really. That’s not happening.
Community Clean – Up went on all through April. Have you done your little bit of community cleaning? Hop to! It’s time for a little Spring cleaning. The Guymon High School Business Club under the leadership of Summer Behne helped out. They worked hard and were a friendly group of kids. Awesome kids. I feel lucky to have gotten to meet them. I feel even luckier to have them help with the trash picking up.
Enjoy May! This is usually the busy month that brings in the Spring. A wonderful time of year in the Oklahoma Panhandle!
See you on the bricks … probably at the parade!

April 23, 2018

There are times when we feel pressured to get results. Whether it’s in our business, with a volunteer organization, or a government department, it is time to get things done, to deliver value and meet some goals.
It happens to most everyone. And so, what do you do to get your team going? Here is some insight presented in the article, “8 Ideas to Revitalize Your Team’s Morale and Productivity” in the April 2018 Toastmaster magazine.
Focusing on results exclusively may improve outcomes for a time, but it also burns out employees and volunteers, increasing apathy and killing morale. The key to sustaining excellent results over time is to combine a focus on achieving results with building healthy professional relationships.
Rock your role. The team’s moral and performance begins with the leader. Can they look at you and see the excellence you’re asking of them? Most effective leaders show to play every day. It’s about progress, not perfection. Hone your craft. Find a mentor. Invest in a leadership development program for you and your team. Keep learning.
Mind the M.I.T. Often the number one cause of poor morale, performance problems, and subpar results is a lack of clarity. You can boost morale and productivity by communicating clean, shared expectations. One way to make sure everyone is on the same page is to “Mind the M.I.T. (Most Important Thing). Be sure to prioritize. What is the most important thing your team can achieve this year? This quarter? This week? What is the most important thing they do today? Does everyone on the team know what winning looks like?
Ditch the Diaper Drama. The team needs direct feedback to help them know what to continue and what to change. Most struggle to give direct feedback in a what that helps their employees. Like stinky diapers wrapped with plastic in the modern – day diaper pail, they wrap their feedback in layers of self – protection so it doesn’t offend anyone. Effective leaders speak the truth. Improve your team’s moral and productivity by having the tough conversations and speak truth with compassion.
Channel Challengers. Effective leaders recognize the value every person on their team contributes. They deliberately surround themselves with people who will challenge their thinking. It’s not enough to have an open – door policy and passively wait for people to tell you what you need to hear. Instead, seek out feedback. Ask “As your leader, what is one thing I could do that would help you be more productive?” Listen, respond, and watch your team’s morale and performance soar.
Own the Ugly. When you make a mistake or hurt someone, apologize and make it right and move on. Your people will be able to trust you more, and they’ll be more likely to take responsibility themselves and morale will improve.
Play the Game, Don’t Game the Score. Keep the team focused on what matters most. Your customer doesn’t care what you get on your scorecard. They care about the value you deliver. Isolate the key behaviors that truly drive the value you contribute to your clients, customers, and members.
Put People Before Projects. Know the unique strengths and perspectives each person brings to the team. Take the time to look at a person’s potential to perform beyond their current role. Build trust with, and between, your people. Listen to what is important to them and encourage their success.
Trust the Trenches. In your team, you have a tremendous source of knowledge, insights, and performance improvements. Listen to what they have to say. Your people are your number one competitive advantage.
Interesting thoughts from the article.
To me, it seems like the article is basically telling you to respect people and their skills, listen to them, and work together. Whether it’s in your work, in your family, or in your church, these are things we should all work on to do better.
So, if the community is my team … what would you like to see happening at Main Street Guymon? Email me your thoughts to
