Leadership@Home

We are in a lifespace now where work and home are blurred. Gone are the models of having defined space for work and family, time for tasks, and an ability to focus solely on work.

E3: Engage Everyone in the Experience (LXD is for you & me!)

Onboarding – It’s more than 1 & Done!

Remember your first day at the new job?  Who knew there were so many benefit options?  And do I put a 0 or a 1 in the tax forms?  But the video from the CEO was interesting and they fed you lunch, right?  “Half of all hourly workers leave new jobs in the first four … Continue reading
