Finding courage and following your heart

Finding courage and following your heart

May 28, 2020

Ask yourself this: “If I had more courage, what would I stop doing right now? What would I start doing?” Courage is one of the cornerstone habits of great leaders.

Locked and loaded: joy triggers

Locked and loaded: joy triggers

May 18, 2020

So, what makes you happy? What are the simple, perhaps irrational, things that bring you joy? I found out the other day that these things are called “joy triggers.” And I loved that.

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

May 7, 2020

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?

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.”

Staying positive: An optimist's guide to social distancing

April 14, 2020

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of change and anxiety! COVID-19 has undoubtedly shaken all of us and impacted our lives significantly for the foreseeable future. It isn’t surprising that some people are jumping into action and making the most of it, some are in a holding pattern unsure of what to do with themselves, and unfortunately, some are slowly spiraling down a negative path.

Why you can't let comparison steal your joy

Why you can't let comparison steal your joy

March 12, 2020

It’s a natural instinct to compare yourself to other people, from when you were very young to now. Does that kid have better toys? Did Aaron get a higher score on that test? Why didn’t I get accepted to that college too? I just got a new job, but my friend still has a better one.

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?
