The Caregiver in Your Workplace

When I became a caregiver it changed the way I did everything. I thought I was a master at multi-tasking. Juggling life and work, being able to stay up to the wee hours coding or managing client work was second nature to me. Suddenly I was thrown into what it really means to multi-task, and I really wasn't as good at it as I imagined. Over time, (years!) I learned to man [...]

But why is there a negotiation in the first place? Is the intent to co-create relationships and workable outcomes for all involved? In a perfect world, we can look at negotiations as [...]

What's your social listening strategy?

However, the trend in marketing is focused on big data, filtered and sifted, often to get the results that validate our company and products rather than to divine what the customer wants.

They can be a memory, a conversation, or simply a feeling that we respond to in a certain way. Triggers can spark joy, happiness, frustration, fear, sadness, anger, and a host of other responses. Some good, some not so [...]
