Why volunteering is good for business

On Monday, I volunteered to an organization called Open Hands in Atlanta. My intention was to use the public holiday wisely and by giving back, it was a good start.

It’s kind of like making your bed each morning. If you do that, it’s one less thing you have to do in the day, and when you return in the evening, you see the fruits of your labor.

Since the start of COVID, so many things have changed about business and the way employees are working in their organizations. Leadership and management of employees' performance have been tested and new 'norms' have arrived in post-COVID employee performance measures especially when it comes to what makes a good employee.

How to spot a sociopath in the workplace

We've all encountered a sociopath whether we have realized it or not. Most of us have had the unfortunately task of realizing long after the storm has cleared that we've been played by a sociopath and we are left to clean up the mess.

When trying to identify whether or not someone is a sociopath, it's harder than you think. We are all human and we all make mistakes - that's a fact. We all display different traits at different times, that has even the most observant of us all wondering whether we too could be inflicted by different mental health issues that taint who we are.

But the reality is much simplier than that. A good sales person spends their lives manipulating people to buy from them. Their ability to manipulate is second to none, so are they are sociopath? The answer isn't so simple.

Being a sociopath is a mental condition in which a person has a long-term pattern of manipulating people, exploiting them and/or violating the rights of others.

After watching a session on Gen-Z at #AdobeSummit I am wondering whether or not #old people like myself will ever be able to manage this generation? Just when we thought that we all had adapted to Millennials, in comes another generation that is faster paced, more dynamic, technology savvy and above all, inspired to realize their dreams.

Why Is Traveling Important?

Traveling the world, whether it is for business or pleasure, allows you to learn and discover the morals and ethics of people all around the world. In business, especially successful businesses, transactions, and interactions internationally are almost guaranteed to occur. Companies and businesses have made it a trend to place more value on the employees with multicultural backgrounds and talents. Having someone apart from the team gives an advantage to the business or company when they do decide to venture into the international field.

I won't lie. I walked into Spanx yesterday and was completely and utterly in awe. Wow! Seriously, Wow! The wide hallways, the high ceilings, the writing on the wall, the pictures, the space, the innovation, the courtyard, the conference room and the kitchen - were a dream.

Sara Blakely is not only the youngest self-made female billionaire in the world today, she is also known widely as the nicest, kindest and most giving. On top of that, she is beautiful, has an unbelievable family and is changing the world, not just our figures when we put on a pair of Spanx to shape the areas we don't want the world to see.

By all means be competitive, but never be the person who leaves someone else behind just to win. 

After listening to the most fascinating man I have ever had the privilege of listening to on team work yesterday, I am completely empowered to bring my team to one level, together and with the same philosophies of a Navy Seal Team.

In fact, I bought some copies of two books today; No Easy Day and No Hero, from a former Navy Seal, hoping to inspire change.

The landscape and overall persona of our society has changed dramatically. Lately, businesses are searching adamantly for answers as it comes to employee retention. Business managers across the globe are seeing turnover rates rising higher and higher. Interns, employees, and prospective employees seem to be rather disengaged when it comes to their jobs. I can’t tell you how or where this started, but I can tell you how this is impacting the workplace.

Work VS. Play

Finding the right balance between work and play can be one of the most challenging feats to achieve for both businesses and for professionals in the workplace. Many times it seems as though we find ourselves on either side, either too focused on work, which affects our personal lives and relationships. And on the other hand, we may get too wrapped up in our personal lives that we let it affect the way we work. In this article we are going to take a look at what drives this work-play balance, and what it could do for you.
