Ways to boost worker morale

Who said it?

There were many old, stylish residences on The Peak in the 1970s ... But most ... were destroyed in the past 20 years

We have to learn to forgive and forget

We have all experienced the feeling of holding a grudge - a feeling of resentment over a slight, real or imagined.

The question is: what should we do in such cases? Should we ignore a person we hold a grudge against or should we just forgive and forget?

The Element of Freedom Alicia Keys (CD)

It's a sad truth, but many artists produce their best works when suffering. Alicia Keys wrote As I Am after her grandmother died, and it was one of the best albums of 2008: a heartfelt, emotion-packed, melodically glorious offering.

Hard to say you're sorry

There is a song called Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word. It explains how difficult it can be to apologise for doing something wrong, or letting someone down, even if we feel guilty.

Saying 'Sorry' sincerely is the most effective way to gain forgiveness. So why do we find it so difficult? It's just another way of being polite, which is something we should do at all times.

While apologising to the person we have wronged is important, we also need to remedy the mistake.
