Written by Shay Dalton

But if the problem is consistent and/or stifling, action may need to be taken.

Thus, shifting the workplace from a rational environment to a place of outward feeling and engagement.

New Year’s resolutions: How to make them useful

Written by Shay Dalton

There’s something endearing in the lofty aspirations we wheel out each January, unkeepable promises that our poor future selves are made to feel slovenly for not fulfilling until we get the chance to do it all over again this time next year. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Creating and fostering cultures of meaning

Written by Shay Dalton

A modish topic, but sometimes less emphasised, facet of success is company culture. Culture is a catchall term, but it comes down to how organisation systems are formed and maintained.
