Own Your Space

What could be more beautiful than an ever-expanding definition of beauty? Or perhaps there needn’t even be a definition, but merely qualities. What are the kinds of qualities that make someone a beautiful person? Is it external beauty? Is it about fulfilling...

Common Sense in the Workplace

I have been finding it interesting, and frustrating, that young, bright, qualified employees in the workplace lack common sense. I cannot fault their ability to learn from books, or the degree that have studiously earned. But they enter the workplace with a lack of...

Workplace Capacity Management

Workplace Capacity Management I recently assisted in a HR process where we were tasked to analyse the working capacity of the staff compliment within a business. I was astounded to report that a group of technicians voluntarily admitted to only working approximately...

Graduate Catch 22

So, you’ve got your degree and are ready to get into the workforce, make money, become successful and take over the world. Right!? Well…ummm…let’s chat about this some more. While I can appreciate the gung-ho and energy, let’s look at the facts: In 2017, there were an...

Be A Giver Rather Than A Taker In The Workplace

I recently attended a workshop where they spoke about the difference between a Giver and a Taker in the workplace. A Taker sits on the one end of the spectrum while a Giver sits on the other. People who are Takers like to get more than they give; they are self-focused...

Self-Motivation

Self-motivation can be rather elusive, can’t it? Some days you are firing on all cylinders, full of ideas, energy and enthusiasm. Other days, no matter how hard you try, you stare at the computer screen willing yourself to type, create, develop, and instead end up...

Gap Year
