What’s the Risk of Busy Work?

We each have aspects of our jobs that consist of busy work - work that is duplicative or meaningless - but when is it considered to be a true problem? CNBC reported on the amount of time employees believe they spend on busy work and how much of that is considered a complete waste.

What is Performance Bias and How Do You Spot It?

Break The Bias for Women in the Workplace

I was shocked when I read that 73% of women experience bias at work - yet less than a third of employees are able to recognize bias when they see it. Admittedly, I’m one of the third who has most likely missed the signs of bias either toward myself or toward others. I’d like to be a part of creating change! 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!

Struggle to Meet Deadlines?

Why do most adults struggle to meet deadlines? Or maybe you meet them, but at times you find yourself scrambling at the last minute or pulling all-nighters to hit that target date. The reason isn't as guilt-ridden as you may believe. In fact, psychologists have a term for it, and no, it's not "procrastination." And once you understand this phenomenon, you can modify your strategy in order to produce better outcomes without hustling up against the clock. Be sure to watch this week's video to find out more!

2020 Was a Pivotal Year for Women

Just released last week, LinkedIn’s latest Workforce Confidence Index shows that 74% of women say they are very or somewhat stressed for work-related reasons, compared with just 61% of employed male respondents. While also this year, McKinsey reported that 1 in 4 women are now considering downshifting their careers or leaving the workforce altogether, something they would’ve never considered the year prior. What are organizations doing wrong when it comes to advancing women, particularly when it comes to women in leadership?
