Skills to Be Culturally Responsive in the Workplace

I once saw a bumper sticker that said, “We are all connected.” Such a simple phrase, yet with so much more depth than just those four words. This year more than ever, “we are all connected” is a reminder that in a time of great unrest and disruption, our actions and words have far-reaching and lasting effects on those around us.

Therefore, empathy, acceptance of diversity, and the ability to treat others with respect and dignity are crucial. All skills that can be learned.

Why Time Management for Moms Is a Myth

August 04, 2020

Time is a precious resource—one that we can't make more of or get back what we’ve used or lost. Moms know how priceless time is and feel time crunches all too often. Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, career woman or a mompreneur, or you work part-time, the role of a mom is broad and diverse. Moms are caretakers for their children, household managers, and keepers of family schedules and routines. They are the Chief Operating Officers of a 24/7 operation.

How Wedding Anniversary Symbols Support and Strengthen a Marriage

July 21, 2020

Anniversaries are opportunities to reflect on where you have come from, understand where you are, and get clear on where you are going. They are also a wonderful time to adjust the compass and chart a new course together or just revel in your journey thus far.

Our work can be a fulfilling and positive experience that enriches the rest of our life—or not. We can love what we do in our work and have both a supportive, nurturing home and work environment—or not! How happy we are in our career determines, to a [...]

What is a blended family? A blended family is defined as a family composed of a couple and their children from previous marriages. Yet, each blended family is unique and comes with its own dynamic challenges.

Successful Businesses Are Led by Solid Empathetic Culture

June 16, 2020

“Take the emotion out of it. This isn’t personal; it is business.” That was the response received early in my career from a new boss when sharing a tough client situation. I had reached out to him for guidance because I needed to talk through the issue and was seeking support. How could they dismiss so abruptly how I was feeling? I did not feel understood or valued. 

Had my boss taken the time to show empathy to my perspective, that interaction would have been much different for me. Empathy is about genuinely looking to understand someone else’s perspective, which creates a connection. [...]
