This paper supports a workshop to be held at the 88th Annual ISM International Purchasing Conference to be held in Nashville, Tennessee from May 18 through May 20, 2003. This session will focus on two key goals. First, the session will seek to present ways in which the Supply Management Professional can relieve tension and make the workplace more enjoyable. But second, and more importantly, the session will provide methods to help the participant maintain that sense of enjoyment over the long term. Many times conference attendees leave the event energized and ready to tackle their toughest problems. However, as the day to day lifestyle creeps back in, it becomes more difficult to continue the motivation to pursue excellence.
