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.
Are you so busy that you believe there's no time for fun?

We lost millions of people in the workforce due to the global pandemic. While men have recovered all of their workforce, women have not.

WARNING: The answer we should be considering may not be what you think.
Whether it's intentional or unconscious, #bias is holding women back in the workplace - hiring, promotions, and in their everyday experiences. One of the common types of bias is Performance Bias, where assumptions are made about women's and men's abilities.

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!
We all know the data - that when women stay in the workforce and advance into leadership positions, it affects the organization's bottom line in a positive way. And although there’s been progress advancing women in leadership, it’s been painfully slow. So as we look to the future, the question organizations should be asking themselves is not how do we get back on track, but rather how do we accelerate and sustain progress?
