Compassion in the Workplace- Immanual Joseph on #MindfulSocial

This week I’m talking with Immanual Joseph, PhD, about compassion. In the workplace, at home, for others and for ourselves. On the podcast Immanual said: “Compassion is fierce. In the workplace it involves standing up to popular opinion, Standing up to your co-workers and friends to do the right thing. It’s also being vulnerable, Compassion is the opposite of weakness. Compassion is courage with wisdom.” I couldn’t agree more! Listen to the podcast and add your own insights in the comments...

Gaming Mindfulness

  In case you’re not familiar with the term, gamification is the process of using gaming elements like scoring, competition, play, and rewards to encourage action. It works particularly well with problem-solving where badges or scores indicate competency. Gamification is certainly not a new way to engage us and create good learning habits. In fact, a Russian scientist named Dmitri Mendeleev may have been the first to use gamification as a learning tool in the 19th century. An avid card player, ...

Why are more companies seeking group leadership coaching? Because it works!

As more and more executives are seeing the value of leadership coaching for themselves, they’re looking to provide coaching for their teams as well. In part to save money, but also to create an internal environment where the team learns together and collaboration happens more fluently. Executive coaching one-on-one can be powerful, no doubt. A client may have some difficult issues to work through, and prefer one-on-one coaching for personal reasons. For some, it’s the right fit because they w...

Working with difficult people

We all have difficult people to deal with at one time or another. At home, at work, at the grocery store. People have bad days. We have bad days. And that, right there is the thing. At the end of the day, we are all just people, trying to do the best we can from our own level of consciousness. Those of us who feel mindfulness is important can still have an unconscious moment. When we blurt out something we didn’t mean to, or we simply ignore the signals we are getting from others about their fee...

IS Your Website GDPR Compliant?

Of course, we are all aware of the privacy issues now in the news about Facebook and other major networking sites. The European Union has been thinking about this much longer, and a new regulation goes into effect soon that will impact how we all do business online. The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a European Union regulation on data protection for everyone within the EU. Its goal is to give back control of data to citizens. It goes live in May of 2018. Just because it’s an EU re...

New Social Media Report, and What About UGC?

It’s not news that people search social media for reviews on purchases, hotels, restaurants and such, or that they ask their friends for recommendations. According to the Nielsen Trust in Advertising report, 83% of consumers world-wide trust recommendations from friends and family. 66% said they trust consumer opinions posted online. So, it makes sense that when consumers are planning a milestone, like getting married, having a baby, big financial investments like cars and homes, even taking a v...

Working with Empathy

While it’s general policy to train your team in the technical elements of their job, you may be leaving out a crucial component; empathy. You probably already know empathy is not something that comes naturally to everyone, yet this skill is essential to a modern, conscious business. Without empathy skills, conflicts can flare up from simple misunderstandings. Lack of empathy can lead to isolation and alienation, divisiveness within a team, highlight diversity issues and cause a brand to make cat...

Hating on Social Media – #NOTOK

Recent activities in Charlottesville and Seattle have been widely reported in the media and particularly on social media. What I have read and heard the last few days sickens me, and I agree with many that it is important,–no, vital–that we stand up and say in a clear voice, “Hate is not OK!”. Not OK in our communities, on our streets, and not OK on social media. In order to say that, we have to look into our own hearts too. Are we guilty of helping this hate storm grow? Hate reflected back on ...

Defining Boundaries

A plant needs space, and a seed, as its container to grow. The seed is a boundary from which the plant grows, as is the space that it takes root and grows in. To ensure our plants—the ones we choose to nurture and grow—have the space they need to grow free from invasive intruders, we weed our landscape. Our relationships are no different. They are a landscape that needs our attention. Weeding is necessary, as is protecting our space from the things we do not need, nor want, within it. Defining ...

Money, You, and the Work to Be Done

Psychology is to money what an engine is to a car. Your motives — what drives you — determines your experience with it. Increasing the quality of your thoughts, your wealth increases. In valuing yourself more, you naturally exchange this greater sense of worth with the world around you. In building credit with yourself, you build credit in the world. But in order to increase the quality of your thoughts around money, in order to build your credit, you first need to do the work. Your work wit...

Finding the Right Investors For Your Business

This article is written by guest author Amelia Collins. Often, when a business searches for investors, they are looking for people who provide capital. Securing capital for a business can come from various sources. INC mentioned in a post that entrepreneurs commonly raise their initial source of business funds from personal savings, credit cards, loans from banks, parents, or even through crowdfunding. However, finding an investor is a whole different ball game. It requires more than just g...
