How building relationships conquers challenges

How building relationships conquers challenges

May 5, 2022

Restaurants are a defining feature of any local flavor, both literally and figuratively. The food business may appear simple to the casual observer, but the service, ambiance, and overall dining experience are a constant balancing act. And when the pandemic struck in early 2020, it sent the hospitality industry careening into uncertainty. Lockdowns forced the end of indoor dining and restaurants with minimal takeout sales watched their revenues plummet overnight.

How intention propels your bigger future

How intention propels your bigger future

April 21, 2022

Every person that is living today, has lived in the past, and will live in the future is constrained by the same 24 hours in a day. How someone chooses to spend those 24 hours is the difference. In striving to place more intention in my life, I’ve learned how to best go about being more purposeful in how I spend my time.

What does your "tendency" say about you?

We tend to have natural inclinations toward certain actions and behaviors. Those are our tendencies, and they play a big role in determining our habits and daily routine.

How to combat negativity in the workplace

How to combat negativity in the workplace

March 31, 2022

We all experience negativity in some form or another, whether it’s on the news, during our commute, or from the people closest to us. Negativity and complaining can be especially common in the workplace, where workloads, office politics, and day to day stress and emotions intersect.

Is multi-tasking the biggest productivity myth out there?

Is multi-tasking the biggest productivity myth out there?

March 17, 2022

The short answer? Probably.

Multi-tasking. We’ve all heard about it and perhaps even touted it as something we’re great at it. But should we be proud of our multi-tasking abilities?

Active listening for authentic connection

Active listening for authentic connection

March 10, 2022

Listening is much like driving: everyone thinks they’re great at it, so few take the time to consider how to improve. But listening is a skill that can be honed and perfected to create greater employee buy-in, increased team morale, and overall organizational success. It can also lead to more genuine, authentic, and symbiotic relationships.

A look at Siegfried's culture

A look at Siegfried's culture

January 13, 2022

We like to have fun at Siegfried. So much fun, in fact, it’s one of our company values. (The others are being fair and building and sharing stakeholder value.) This focus on fun and sharing value across employees and friends of the Firm was on display at our National Summit in Las Vegas, NV.

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. 

Ah, it's that time of year! Jingle bells are jingling...

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.
