Workplace Wisdom

One of the advantages of growing in maturity is the vast, hands-on experience gathered along the way.  I am fortunate to have had a variety of jobs and, ultimately, a career.  Each stage of working offered something different.  I worked for myself, worked at home, worked for others, and had others working for me; I had great bosses, not-so-great bosses and short-lived bosses that I knew I couldn’t possibly work with.  Each experience provided an opportunity to learn more about myself, the ever-evolving, and the inevitable issues that came along with it.

Many workplace topics are universal, but there is that extra something that businesses often dismiss in their quest to move forward: the human element.  Companies can set quotas, re-organize, and lead in a variety of ways, but if people don’t feel heard, appreciated, and motivated, the players may change but it will be “same climb, different mountain.” Addressing this human, softer, side of business, often results in hard core changes.

Employers and employees alike may try to separate their work and home life, but it somehow overlaps whether we want it to or not.  We can try and mask our fears, our grief, our anxiety, or our traumatic backgrounds, but they  frequently find a way to show up and impact our workplace. And they can impact your bottom line.

It begins with awareness and grows from there. Let me know if I can help.
