Bring on the spring! More music to inspire a fresh start.

Bring on the spring! More music to inspire a fresh start.

The winter holidays and all that time spent indoors can create physical clutter, but the winter also brings mental fatigue as well. Cleaning up clutter and opening the windows for some fresh air isn’t just important for your living space but for your mind as well.

Is multi-tasking the biggest productivity myth out there?

Is multi-tasking the biggest productivity myth out there?

March 17, 2022

The short answer? Probably.

Multi-tasking. We’ve all heard about it and perhaps even touted it as something we’re great at it. But should we be proud of our multi-tasking abilities?

How to write a gratitude letter that'll blow someone away

How to write a gratitude letter that'll blow someone away

March 3, 2022

Writing a gratitude letter may seem like an overblown thank you note, but that’s simply not true. Imagine how you would feel if you received an honest, truthful letter that thanked you for how you impacted someone’s life?

A look at Siegfried's culture

A look at Siegfried's culture

January 13, 2022

We like to have fun at Siegfried. So much fun, in fact, it’s one of our company values. (The others are being fair and building and sharing stakeholder value.) This focus on fun and sharing value across employees and friends of the Firm was on display at our National Summit in Las Vegas, NV.

Vision board do's and don't's

Vision board do's and don't's

January 6, 2022

Every January, we get a fresh start, so to speak. A clean slate. A blank piece of paper. But what are you going to do with that blank piece of paper? If you’re already thought about your resolutions and goals, why not take it one step further and create a vision board?

Bah, humbug! Simple lessons from holiday classics

Bah, humbug! Simple lessons from holiday classics

December 23, 2021

Ah, it’s that time of year! Jingle bells are jingling, carolers are singing, and grocery stores everywhere have a line.

There’s only one weekend left before Christmas, and it’s a perfect time to sit down with your friends and family and watch a holiday classic or two. Maybe It’s a Wonderful Life, or How the Grinch Stole Christmas (one or all of the versions), or Elf. One of our favorite things about holiday movies? There’s always some kind of lesson we can learn. 

Ah, it's that time of year! Jingle bells are jingling...

The magic in showing gratitude

The magic in showing gratitude

November 18, 2021

Until a few years ago, I placed myself solidly in the “Christmas is the best holiday of the year” camp. For me, Thanksgiving was a stop on the way to Cookieville and Christmas Tree Town. But, as the promise of new toys became less interesting, I realized that Thanksgiving has its own kind of magic. It’s slow and subtle, but Thanksgiving reminds us all to stop and say thank you. To be grateful for what we have and what others give us. (And of course, to eat lots of mashed potatoes.)

Until a few years ago, I placed myself solidly in th...

The power in seeing people as people

The power in seeing people as people

November 11, 2021

Assuming you don’t see people as aliens or subhumans, you might be asking yourself, “What other way is there to see people besides people?” Well, when you are focused, obsessed, and absorbed with your own interests and activities, it’s likely that you are only thinking of the people around you as far as they impact you. Perhaps you see them as competition, or as a roadblock, or perhaps an ally. Basically, you see them as objects and not as the complex, thoughtful beings they are. And that’s a problem.

What is managing up?

What is managing up?

September 2, 2021

Managing up sounded terrifying to me the first time I heard it. The second time too, if I’m being honest. I’m supposed to tell my manager what to do? Doesn’t that make them seem like bad leader? Who am I to tell her what she should or should not be doing? Well, turns out, that’s not what managing up is. (Phew.)
