The Thang

A fellow PAX and dear friend of YHC who discussed, almost daily, the growth of The Griff and the changing from The Griff to the Lion’s Den welcomed his first 2.0 into this crazy world.  He has stuck with the growth of the Lion’s Den! He deserves to be honored, so we did just that! Congrats Ohms!

Throughout today’s beatdown, the Mumblechatter reached typical Lion’s Den levels! YHC heard it put later in the day as this “it has become a tight knit group of guys that are more like close friends doing a workout together and they really enjoy it”.  Well, this is exactly what YHC wants to hear from these workouts; because, we are supposed to be building relationships such as that…
Unfortunately, lost in the Mumblechatter was solid communication.  As leaders we must effectively communicate. As a leader, it is not the listening parties responsibility to actively listen or understand correctly.  As a leader, we must find the correct way to present information; so that, the listener can understand the point. When these are combined, we have true communication.  My challenge to the Pax this morning was to do just that: communicate. Empathy, listening and responding, checking tone, checking body language, speaking meekly, or using assertiveness.  Whatever the “block” is in the communication: be the leader that recognizes it, admits it, attempts to correct it, and enrich the lives around you.


We learned about a three way…(yep you had to be there)
There is a very good reason why YHC teaches Special Ed. (ask Prosciutto)
We love acronyms in F3.
If you don’t understand the Q, ask Whittler and Fissure…they might be paying attention
Fissure is still wondering where the heck Dora is and why she is coming to an all men’s workout group.
Prosciutto’s Gold Chain was as shiny and prevalent as ever.
Math at 0600 is hard.
YHC will read the disclaimer from this point forward.
