Working Women and Careers

I recently recorded a podcast on helping women transition careers, and it made me think of a few points. We (society) still talk about women transitioning careers or advancing in work in a way in which we do not talk about men. While I believe that it has become easier for women to change careers…

Change, Improve, Thrive

As the world becomes more fixated on dimensions of leadership, I began noticing the headlines suggesting ways in which leaders were thinking outside of the box. With one news article after another about a leader of an organization implementing the latest eye-catching policy, one major theme struck me. These weren’t leaders just doing things to…

Do You Daydream? Good!

Stop the press! Did you know that people spend approximately 30% or more daydreaming? Let’s take it a step further: Did you know that daydreaming can be helpful to leaders? You read that right. Daydreaming. Letting your mind wander and create a new world of its own. Getting lost in your own thoughts.  All of…

When Do You Sleep?

Sleep. Rest. Often used interchangeably, most people understand what is meant when a person asks if you’ve had any sleep/rest?  When someone uses one of these words, it is mainly to ask if the body, mind, and spirit has had a chance to relax (uninterrupted) in order to rejuvenate. We all know what rest/sleep looks…

Dream Big

Working From Home

It’s month 10 of working from home (WFH) for me, and I believe that I have tried just about everything in order to make it fruitful. Unfortunately, life happens and when I think of a system that works, I have to change it again. Feel familiar? Paperwork gets mixed with laundry laying around. In the…

Give Them What They Need

Recently, I was thinking about the hardest assignment I ever had and what it taught me. Have you ever had one of those?  I compare those moments to my high school biology class. It was the hardest class for me, and I received the worst grade, but I ended up learning the most from that…

Hooray for Productivity Tools!

*I am not being paid to review these products. These are all products that I have tried on my own and recommend. I recently wrote a piece on the ideas for Christmas gifts, so I decided to look at productivity tools this time. I’m usually a paper and pen person, but every now and then,…

Virtual Problem-Solving

When it comes to solving a problem, there are various methods that a person can take. I would usually take a walk around my building and talk to myself about the issue. If anyone viewed the security cameras, they’d think I was talking to a ghost or an imaginary friend. I’d usually walk until I…
