Brew master: five steps to making the perfect iced coffee at home


Author bios are often an undervalued tool in marketing. Yet, the author bio can add credibility, make the rest of your content more effective, and get you conversions.

With a few adjustments, you can write a results-driven bio that increases your leads, demo signups, visits, likes, sales, etc.

How to write a bio that gets results


Coworkers And Conversations
  • Workplace conversation used to take place near the water cooler, usually involving current events, sitcoms, or the weather.
  • The pandemic shifted most of the communication in the hands of technology with Zoom, Slack and email being our only channels to converse with coworkers.
  • The conversation has deteriorated by being an online exclusive deal. It feels transactional and highly superficial.
  • Small talk stays small, and there are fewer trust-based, genuine human relationships at the workplace.

How to have deeper (and better) conversations with your coworkers


Building the workplace of the future

During the pandemic, companies had to rethink how to engage employees when they couldn't physically be together.

Now that they bring teams back, not all employees want to return to the way things were. Companies need unique office environments that encourage collaboration for a hybrid workforce. Managers should consider the work personas to create new arrangements.

The 4 work personas that have come out of the pandemic


The agile framework

The agile framework is about optimizing performance. One way to inspire that improvement and help teams grow in the process is by celebrating wins and setbacks.

Why And How Successful Teams Celebrate Wins And Failures


Look for opportunities to do something for your connection.

When someone connects with you on LinkedIn, thank them and ask if there is anything you can do for them. It can lead to valuable connections and partnerships. Always follow up your meeting with a thank-you note.

How emotional intelligence can help you find your next job


Whether your interview is in-person or virtual, prepare specific questions to get more detailed answers on the culture. For example:

  • When someone drops the ball on a project, how does your team handle it?
  • When there is a conflict cross-functionally, how do people sort it out?
  • When people are working remotely, how does the company ensure there is a sense of community?

Knowing how a company answered specific questions (even if they responded vaguely) will give you a better idea of what to expect if you accept the offer.

How to Find Out if a Company’s Culture is Right for You


Regular Small Talk

These few weekly half-hours small talk make work more enjoyable. Communication barriers are lowered and channels smoothened.

Mutual reliance, understanding, and coordination increase. Slowing down and making social time helps people be better teammates.

Serendipity and being open to the unexpected

Serendipity is making unexpected discoveries. It is not entirely controllable nor predictable. It means seeing solutions where others find none.

In a rapidly changing world, we don't know which problems to solve or which resources to develop. To meet this challenge, we must learn to accept the limitations of planning and welcome the potential of the unexpected.

How to make serendipity happen in the workplace


The steady rise of remote workers

Over the last decade, remote working has become more and more popular.

  • In 2003, 19.6 percent of people were considered remote workers.
  • In 2015, the number has climbed to 24.1 percent.
  • A 2019 study of over 1200 full-time workers showed that 62 percent of people were remote workers.
  • With the pandemic in 2020, even more people are forced to telecommute, and working from home became the norm.

According to many outlets, remote work is here to stay.
