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.

How the Agile methodology drives project progress

How the Agile methodology drives project progress

November 4, 2021

Pivoting from the status quo can be daunting and deflating. Organizational changes can feel unnecessary, especially as you adjust to the new standard and experience performance and efficiency dips. That’s where the agile methodology comes in: this new structure and way of working maintains the feeling of a traditional organization while inspiring employees to cut through the noise and deliver project results.

Communicating with different personality types

Communicating with different personality types

October 14, 2021

We all bring our lives into the workplace, no matter how hard we try to check ourselves at the door. Understanding employees and colleagues as individuals, who each have their own unique skills and life experiences, is critical to getting the most out of collaboration. By interacting with established personality types, we can begin to polish our communication for the most effective results.

Children’s movies and TV shows hold a special place not only in our hearts, but in the collective media of our society. Large creators like Disney and Pixar craft beautiful, relatable characters and stories that do not simply entertain the latest generation, but provide social commentary in simple but powerful ways for more mature minds.

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.)

Harnessing silence for growth

Harnessing silence for growth

July 29, 2021

Silence carries a strong stigma. It is seen as crippling, rude, and worst of all, weak. But, why is this? I may be one of the few who values silence. I see the beauty and power in its pure nothingness and the opportunities that hide behind it. It offers a pause to the bustling world, allowing for self-reflection and growth.

How minimalism improves mental, financial health

How minimalism improves mental, financial health

July 22, 2021

Minimalism is a popularly embraced mindset that bucks the status quo of material consumption to instead put the focus of your life on you and your dreams, as opposed to your material desires. Without constantly searching for the next score on Amazon, you clear your mind to focus on what is most significant in your mind and heart, rather than your next impulse.
