Lessons from the Last Airbender

September 16, 2021

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.)

August 12, 2021

Workplace stress is so common today that it’s been referred to as the “health epidemic of the 21st century” by the World Health Organization. It’s well known that stress has degenerative effects on our health and wellness. Stress is so prevalent that it costs American businesses some $300 billion a year. So how do you fight back against workplace stress to maintain productivity and progress in your career?

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.

The art of list making and getting things done

The art of list making and getting things done

July 8, 2021

I’ve always been a list maker and I take it very seriously. I specifically remember one time in college, I left my planner behind, full of lists and important notes, after spending a long weekend at home. My friend tweeted, “The fact that Abby left her planner at home and I can hear her freaking out from downstairs . . . her actual worst nightmare.” She knew, and not much has changed.

10 Things I Learned From 365 Days of Learning

10 Things I Learned From 365 Days of Learning

July 1, 2021

On May 12, 2020, I embarked on a rather life-changing journey. I had attended a webinar earlier that month and was introduced to the amazing Pamay Bassey, Chief Learning Officer at Kraft Heinz. Pamay shared about her recent year-long challenge called “365 Days of Learning,” where she learned something new and shared about it every day! But she did not stop there, she inspired a whole learning movement at Kraft Heinz through this challenge! Intrigued and hungry for something new in what was turning out to be a very upside-down year, I set out on my own #365DaysOfLearning journey.

How to become an audiobook addict

June 17, 2021

What was the last book you’ve read? Up until the last couple months, I always dreaded that question at work, in interviews, and even just with friends. I would always convince myself that I didn’t have time and that reading wasn’t worth it.

Embracing failure to build success

Happiness and success don’t have to look the same for all of us. For Meredith Bragg, a Senior Associate in our Los Angeles market, happiness comes from the joy of human connection and the freedom of new experiences, and not from conventional success.
