A combination of active listening, use of examples drawn from personal experience, a mutually-agreed game plan with achievable and measurable results, and frequent follow-up and reinforcement, usually does the trick. A sense of humor helps, too. John has lived in Southern California since 1978 and became a U.S. citizen in 1994. He first came to the States in 1968 as a Fulbright Scholar to the University of Oregon in Eugene, and returned as a production and quality consultant to a food manufacturer in Zanesville, Ohio in 1974.
