Rebuilding after the 2008

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.”

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?

Lessons learned from my 111-year-old great-grandmother

Lessons learned from my 111-year-old great-grandmother

November 7, 2019

My great grandmother, Downing Jett Kay, was born on November 23, 1907 which means she is just a few weeks shy of being 112 years old! That makes Gramma D, as she is colloquially addressed, the oldest person in the state of Maryland, the 18th oldest person in the United States, and the 65th oldest person in the world (if we’re trusting Wikipedia).
