Bee Humble Bee Kind Bee Loving Decorative Garden Flag

At Flags Galore we believe that quality should never be a compromise. All our iconic flags are made from 2 panels of heavy duty soft polyester with a sun block backing on the inside of each panel. Silky soft, and shockingly durable, the sun block backing keeps light from shining through the flag and washing out the elegant design on each side. Your durable all weather flag will always show vibrant colors and tones on both sides.

Our flags are neatly double stitched around the entire perimeter, in the corners, and at the ends of the sewn in rod sleeve so that your flag will withstand the test of time.

Each flag is Double Sided so that the message is readable from BOTH sides. Through dye sublimation printing, Flags Galore flags are hands down gorgeous. The bright colors and rich tones are simply not possible using ordinary printing techniques.

The genius 2-ply design is substatial and tailor-made to anchor your flag to the stand, but delicate enough to wave gracefully in the breeze.

Designed to fit most standard garden poles, our garden flags measure approximately 12″ x 18″ inches and they are machine washable.

Flags Galore primium quality flags and banners make great gifts for the deck, porch, or veranda. Charming and artistically designed to make that perfect presentation in your backyard, lawn or garden.

Radical Compassion Challenge: Deepening Our Empathy and Kindness

Imagine what could happen if a community of people from all over the world were to dedicate themselves to putting compassion into action—every single day!

That’s our vision for the Radical Compassion Challenge: A 10-Day Journey to Awaken Our Hearts and Bring Healing to Our World—a brand-new, free online event, hosted by Tara Brach.

Our intention for this free online event is to start the new year with a “radical resolution” on a collective level, supporting each other in a commitment to deepening our empathy and kindness, healing our relationships, and bridging societal divides.

Each day will bring you a teaching session with your host Tara Brach—including an original guided meditation and a practical “compassion-in-action” challenge—followed by an inspiring interview with guests featuring:

Maria Shriver, bestselling author and journalist, on how each one of us is poised to play our unique role in the betterment of society and the healing of our world. Airing January 21.

 

Van Jones, CNN commentator and bestselling author, on his lifelong efforts for social reform and his realization that activism must be grounded in compassion if it’s to be effective. Airing January 30.

 

Dr. Daniel J. Siegel, the bestselling author and pioneering teacher who almost left medical school because of the lack of compassion in mainstream medicine. Tune in on January 22 to hear why he stuck with it.

 

Krista Tippett, founder and CEO of The On Being Project—Tune in on January 29 for her insights into finding the courage to face the pain and suffering of others when we would much rather turn away.

And if you’d like lifetime access to all of the teachings and practices you’ll discover during this event, we have a special upgrade package available as well.

We’re looking forward to this opportunity to engage our compassion for the collective good—and we look forward to seeing you on January 21, 2020 when we kick things off!

Clear is Kind. Unclear is Unkind.


Adapted from Dare to Lead by Brené Brown

We started our interviews with senior leaders with one question: What, if anything, about the way people are leading today needs to change in order for leaders to be successful in a complex, rapidly changing environment where we’re faced with seemingly intractable challenges and an insatiable demand for innovation?

There was one answer across the interviews: We need braver leaders and more courageous cultures.

To better understand, we followed up by asking, Why courage? and What’s getting in the way of building more daring cultures? Of the ten behaviors and cultural issues that leaders identified as barriers to courage, there was one issue that leaders ranked as the greatest concern: Avoiding tough conversations, including giving honest, productive feedback.

Some leaders attributed this to a lack of courage, others to a lack of skills, and, shockingly, more than half talked about a cultural norm of “nice and polite” that’s leveraged as an excuse to avoid tough conversations.


Brené BrownBrené Brown, PhD, LMSW is a research professor at the University of Houston’s Graduate College of Social Work who has spent the past 10 years studying vulnerability, courage, authenticity, and shame. She is a nationally renowned speaker and has won numerous teaching awards, including the college’s Outstanding Faculty Award. Her groundbreaking work has been featured on PBS, NPR, and CNN. Her 2010 TEDxHouston talk on the power of vulnerability is one of most watched talks on TED.com. Her most recent TED talk, “Listening to Shame,” was released in March 2012.



Whatever the reason, there was saturation across the data that the consequences of avoiding tough conversations or tapping out of a difficult rumble as soon as it gets uncomfortable include:

  1. Diminishing trust and engagement;
  2. Increases in problematic behavior, including passive-aggressive behavior, talking behind people’s backs, pervasive backchannel communication (or “the meeting after the meeting”), gossip, and the “dirty yes” (when I say yes to your face and then go behind your back); and
  3. Decreasing performance due to a lack of clarity and shared purpose.

Over the past several years, my team and I have learned something about clarity and the importance of hard conversations that has changed everything from the way we talk to each other to the way we negotiate with external partners. It’s simple but transformative: Clear is kind. Unclear is unkind.

I first heard this saying two decades ago in a 12-step meeting, but I was on slogan overload at the time and didn’t even think about it again until I saw the data about how most of us avoid clarity because we tell ourselves that we’re being kind, when what we’re actually doing is being unkind and unfair.

Feeding people half-truths or bullshit to make them feel better (which is almost always about making ourselves feel more comfortable) is unkind.

Not getting clear with a colleague about your expectations because it feels too hard, yet holding them accountable or blaming them for not delivering is unkind.

Talking about people rather than to them is unkind.
This lesson has so wildly transformed my life that we live by it at home. If Ellen is trying to figure out how to handle a college roommate issue or Charlie needs to talk to a friend about something . . . clear is kind. Unclear is unkind.

When we have to show up for a hard conversation we call it “a rumble.” For us, this is more than just a weird West Side Story way to say, “Let’s have a real conversation, even if it’s tough.” It’s become a serious intention and a behavioral cue or reminder.

A rumble is a discussion, conversation, or meeting defined by a commitment to lean into vulnerability, to stay curious and generous, to stick with the messy middle of problem identification and solving, to take a break and circle back when necessary, to be fearless in owning our parts, and, as psychologist Harriet Lerner teaches, to listen with the same passion with which we want to be heard.

More than anything else, when someone says, “Let’s rumble,” it cues me to show up with an open heart and mind so we can serve the work and each other, not our egos. Armoring up and protecting our egos rarely leads to productive, kind, and respectful conversations.

Dr. Maya Angelou on being Complaint Free


Dr. Maya Angelou on being Complaint Free – Transcript

How do I think the world would be in 1% of the world’s population was complaint free?

Einstein said no genius has ever used more than 18% of the brains but today’s geophysicist say no Tina says ever use more than 10% of the brain. The majority of us mumbled and get around with five, six, seven percent.

If we’ve been able to stay alive at all, alive and future thinking. Alive and having enough courage to care for each other. Enough courage to love. And know that we are probably one one percent of sixty million free of complaints. Imagine who would we be!

Who would we be if we were one percent of six hundred million? Six billion? What would happen?

I tell you one thing, I think war would be laughed out of the room. I think the very word… if somebody said war another person would say you mean am I supposed to kill somebody because he doesn’t agree with me? Ha, I don’t think so.

Just imagine … people would speak kind, they’re more kindly to each other. Courtesy would be invited back into the living room, into the bedroom, into the children’s room, into the kitchen.

If 1% of our world were complaint free, we would care more about the children and realize that every child is our child. The black one and the white one, the pretty one the plain one, the Asian and the Muslim, the Japanese and the Jewish. Everyone is our child.

If we were just 1% free of complaints imagine that we would stop blaming other people for our mistakes and hating them because they caused the mistake in our minds.
What's standing between you and success?

Just imagine if we laughed more frequently if we had the unmitigated courage to touch each other. It would be a just beginning of paradise you know

Thank you.
