How many of us are working through lunch today? With working from home being more of the norm, it’s so easy to stay glued to our devices or to just keep working. The only reason we know these things is because we are guilty of it ourselves. When we were younger, we couldn’t wait until the lunch hour.
We know it sounds simple, but for some reason it feels like we’re back to this being a hard concept. The numbers are up, but we can make a difference if we hold each other accountable. What we won’t do is force people to do anything they don’t want to do because we also recognize that some people have medical and religious regions for not gettin an injection. What we can do is recommend something everyone can do to help prevent the spreading of this illness.
Welcome to back to school season! It came back around so fast, like literally Summer has flown by. Either way, it’s time to get back into a routine, and restore order for the upcoming school year. This is going to be a serious transition, as most most students are returning back to the classroom for the first time since March 2020. This can be a scary thing, but we’re here to help alleviate any anxiety you and your children may have.
Welcome to retreat season (and potentially in-person) Let’s admit it, our teams whether new or old need a refresh. We need some time together to regroup, reevaluate, and reassess our goals as a team, company, etc. Maybe you have new team members you’ve added since 2020 who will definitely need to spend in-person time with your team to feel welcomed and understand the company culture a lot more now that they can actually meet their team and not over zoom.
Most people aren’t equipped to cut through the awkwardness of a social gathering just to make a new contact or two. Others have no choice. Skipping the gathering is not an option, especially with event tracking devices communicating every break out session attendance or bar visit. We get it. Which is why we have come up with a hot list of ice breaking opening lines to use on just about anyone as conversation joiners or starters.
Have you ever lost your train of thought mid-ride? Instead of barreling full speed ahead into your brilliant proclamation, something else popped up. Suddenly, your enthusiasm was replaced with the panicked urgency of thinking (often out loud) “crap, crap, crap, what was I literally JUST thinking!?!?”
As a mother, wife and business owner, I often find myself at the end of either of these two spectrums. A.) a very controlled tightly run ship which is basically running on autopilot or B.) surrounded by missing socks, forgotten lunches and a surge of business productivity.
