Sorry, not sorry. Why apologizing all the time is a bad idea.

Sorry, not sorry. Why apologizing all the time is a bad idea.

February 20, 2020

You may not think you over apologize, but how often do you say sorry when something was clearly out of your control, like when you sneeze, or you walk through a door at the same time as someone else, or when someone spills their coffee on their new shirt?

How to have difficult conversations

How to have difficult conversations

January 30, 2020

Difficult conversations, those talks we don’t really want to have, aren’t fun. From asking your parents for that one gift that was just out of reach, to breaking off a relationship, to navigating the manager/employee dynamic, tough discussions are just that — tough. But with a little preparation and connection to your empathic side, you can make difficult conversations a little easier.

Three ways to be a more empathetic leader

Three ways to be a more empathetic leader

January 23, 2020

Empathy, our ability to sense other people’s emotions and to imagine what they may be thinking or feeling, enables us to become better leaders of ourselves and others. If we can’t understand or appreciate what other people feel, how can we expect to relate to them and lead them successfully? And, if you don’t take time to understand what you’re feeling, how can you lead yourself?

Bah, humbug! Simple lessons from holiday classics

December 20, 2019

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.
