CNBC reported on the amount of time employees believe they spend on busy work and how much of that is considered a complete waste. In this video, I address the consequences of busy work and how it can impact you and your team.

Join me on International Women’s Day to #BreakTheBias against women in the workplace. I’ll be facilitating an open discussion to empower women and others to identify and challenge bias head on!

Women left the workforce at higher rates than men in 2020 and many more are considering doing so in the near future - something they would've never considered the year prior. I know first-hand what this feels like as I experienced my own #burnout at the end of 2013, where I initially believed my only option was to quit my job if I were to save my family and my health. If you're like me and many of the other working women, I encourage you to pause and reflect on these three questions before making a decision to quit!
When I work with organizations and executives on beating burnout, one of the key strategies I share is to begin with communication. But I’ve found that for many, they lack the confidence to initiate the communication and/or how they communicate lacks confidence.
