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.)

Conquering fears of starting something new

May 20, 2021

We’ve all been there: we see or hear of an awe-inspiring ability and wonder if it’s something that we can accomplish ourselves. From dancing to swimming, sky diving and flying, it’s natural to feel a pull to explore more of what life has to offer.

April 8, 2021

We all want to do what we love, or at least love what we do. And it’s possible, according to Kaihan Krippendorf, the most recent winner of the Siegfried Award for Entrepreneurial Leadership. “My passion is strategy, but my purpose is really people loving what they do.” By utilizing the strategies of what Kaihan called an “outthinker,” you can create impact that empowers you to do what you love by finding innovative, unique solutions.

Do you know your love language? The idea of a love language has become more and more popular in the last several years, and when one of my friends asked me what mine was, I didn’t know what to say.

The unbridled exchange of information on the internet has never met its match in terms of ensuring accuracy and consistency, which is why we must individually confront ourselves, our biology, and our biases to find a truer, more nuanced picture of the issues.

The class of 2020 is stopping to smell the roses

The class of 2020 is stopping to smell the roses

June 11, 2020

2020 was set to be a defining year for many of my closest friends and for many college and high school seniors. The moment we’d been waiting, practicing, learning, growing, saving, and worrying for had finally come. We were poised to don our caps and gowns and take the symbolic step out of our academic cocoon and into the warm and bright future of tomorrow.

Rebuilding after the 2008 "Great Recession"

April 23, 2020

For Cassandra Essick, Employee Engagement Associate at Siegfried, the chaotic events of the past few weeks have reminded her of her struggle through 2008 and her journey back to enjoyable normalcy. The similarities between these two seismic events are striking, but Cassandra promises it will get better: “Even though it’s bad right now, and it might get worse before it gets better, my experiences in 2008 and others’ experiences throughout history show it will get better.”
