INSCOM EO Bulletin DECEMBER 2011

Peace on Earth, Good Will towards all Men: A small phrase with enormous meaning. However separate we may appear physically….. A life of peace begins with the simplest and most basic truth: We are all equal. Every human being is equal to every other human being. If we want to move toward a culture of peace and nonviolence, we will have to open our eyes, see with new vision, and recognize every human being as our very own sister and brother. This vision is a fundamental reality. All life is sacred. Sarah Belle Doughtry

As a part of your New Year’s Resolution we encourage you to resolve to be more patient and understanding of your family members and coworkers and to continue to treat all of the members of the INSCOM Team with the same dignity and respect that you yourself deserve. We wish you PEACE in mind and body in the new year.

Merry Christmas, LTC Hines & SFC Taylor

Tis’ the Season of Diversity! There is more than one way to celebrate the holiday! Christmas is a Christian holiday on December 25th that commemorates the birth of Jesus. Christmas literally means the Mass (celebration) of Christ. "Christ" is a Greek word and title, meaning "anointed" or one set apart by God for special purpose.

Kwanzaa is a Swahili word that means “first” and signifies the first fruits of harvest. From December 26th to January 1st many people of African decent in America celebrate Kwanzaa. Kwanzaa is that time when we reflect on our use of the basic principles, share and enjoy the fruits of our labor, and recommit ourselves to the collective achievement of a better life for our family, our community, and our people.

According to the ancient story, when the Jews re-dedicated the Holy Temple, there was very little oil remaining to light the Temple menorah (or candelabra) -- as the bulk of the lamp oil had been polluted. But the oil that was only enough for one day, miraculously lasted eight days. This is considered to be the origin of the eight-day celebration of Hanukkah. Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, is best known as the winter holiday when Jewish people light the “menorah" and exchange gifts

INSCOM EOAs from around the Globe UNITE! INSCOM EOAs came from England, Germany, Hawaii and stateside locations to attend the DEOMI 8th Biennial Research Symposium / 40th Anniversary Celebration in Coco Beach Florida on 6-8 Dec 2011. The Symposium was held to share research with the EOA and EEO community that address the relationship between positive social awareness and organizational effectiveness. It also provided our EOAs a chance to meet each other face to face and share ideas that will further enhance the INSCOM EO mission of ensuring fair treatment of military personnel, family members, and civilians by assisting the INSCOM Commander in providing an environment free of unlawful discrimination and offensive behavior.

EO TRAINING…AGAIN?

YES!

THE EO KM PORTAL is now..

EO Training on the same subjects month to month can be a little redundant and boring but it does not have to be, and for the lucky personnel of INSCOM it won’t be. We are going to start training on some thought provoking subjects such as Toxic Leadership and Communication Breakdown which is a more interesting version of the Effective Communication Class.

Training that assist you in making an assessment about yourself tend to make you a better relater to others. I encourage you to check out the topics for the upcoming EO/ Human Relations classes that will be posted on the EO KM Portal and attend even if you are not “RED” on EO training. It will be motivating, beneficial , and who knows .. you may even enjoy it!

The EO team tried to convince the G1 to give everyone who attends training “59” minutes but….

We are working hard to ensure that we are providing the kind of support you need! There are many changes that still have to occur but we encourage you to stop by and check out the most recent changes to our site. If you have any suggestions or ideas that you would like to see that would assist in maximizing our information flow please contact us via the email link on the KM Portal under our smiling faces!
