Making the Case for the Hybrid-Work Model

Until March 2020, working from home was, for most employers, an idea that raised many concerns — especially regarding cybersecurity, employee productivity and accessibility. As a business owner whose team has operated on a hybrid-work schedule since 2018, I know firsthand that the model demands trust and discipline. But if executed well, it can lead to a happier, healthier workforce. Even as many companies return to in-office work after a year and a half of remote operations during the coronavir...

5 Ways to Ease Back Into Work (And Life) Post-Pandemic

Pandemic life was an enormous challenge for all of us.  With more and more people becoming vaccinated, life slowly is returning to a new ‘normal’ where we can give hugs to friends and family, go out with friends more, attend parties or weddings, travel and perhaps later this year attend in-person business meetings and events.  The excitement of a return to a form of pre-pandemic life is real. Although with this return, I’m challenging myself to think of what aspects of pandemic life I’d li...

A Lesson in Reverse Mentoring, Courtesy of ‘The Queen’s Gambit’

A few months ago, I watched the Netflix series “The Queen’s Gambit,”  an acclaimed coming-of-age period drama about a young chess prodigy who struggles with addiction. As a whole, the show left me underwhelmed, but one element of the series spoke strongly to me. In a particularly telling scene, the protagonist Beth Harmon (played by Anya Taylor-Joy), a rising chess star, receives an unexpected visit from a former rival, Harry Beltik (played by Harry Melling). She beat Harry in a chess match when...
