Sending the Right Signals
Have you ever thought about the signals you send?
Everything you do says something about you. What
are you saying through your words and actions, even you body language? Even
the documents you produce say something about you.
Are you sending out positive signals in your CAD
Standard? Are there too many "Do Not's" in your standard? To
many limits. To restrictive guidelines? or are they just the right
blend of boundaries and freedoms.
When you do training, are you annoyed by "stupid"
questions? Do you actually stifle conversation by seeming to be too
aloof? or are you open to questions and comments that may challenge
Do you roll your eyes, sigh, smirk or laugh at the
wrong times? Do you frown, scowl, or furrow your brow at other peoples
Don't forget that everything you do, say, write and even
display in your expressions says volumes to your team. Make sure
they are saying what you want them to hear.

Eighty percent of those who responded are on
Subscription. 74% said they were on subscription last year at this

What is more marked is the progress of moving forward.
24% said that they were in the process of upgrading "right now" in 2005.
That went down to 14% in 2006 and 13% in 2007.
58% in 2005, 64% in 2006 and now 70% say that Autodesk is
rolling out software too fast.
