Freeing Our Work Spirit May 21, 2020 Posted in: Blog, Jalene Case

By Jalene Case,

Our poor work spirits have taken quite a hit during this pandemic. By “work spirit” I mean the part of us that loves the work we’ve chosen to do and relishes the rewards we receive for doing it well. I’ve talked with people who are still working in their jobs, people who have laid off all their employees but are still working, and solopreneurs trying to stay afloat. Everyone is exhausted.

It takes an inordinate amount of energy to work right now. Our internal systems are overloaded by analyzing decisions that didn’t require our attention a month ago. We have to ask ourselves: Am I far enough away from that person? How can I reduce the number of trips to the grocery store? How do I not look like a total dork on Zoom? Why aren’t I using this time for my big, dream projects? It’s no wonder we’re wiped out!

The Difference May 14, 2020 Posted in: Blog, Jeremy Graves

By Dr. Jeremy Graves,

If you would have told me in January that a large percentage of the population would be working from home, I would have never believed it. I have been watching the rise of the remote workforce and even have had the opportunity to work with teams and leaders in creating a remote environment. However, I think it’s important of us to remember the place of words and the power of mindset.

You see we are not simply working from home because we are telecommuting or we have the opportunity to work remotely, we are at home in the midst of a crisis but still trying to work. Read More

How Leaders Can Help Their Remote Workers May 7, 2020 Posted in: Blog, Dr. Francis Eberle

By Dr. Francis Eberle

What can we do when it feels like inertia is holding us back? These days, I have noticed during recent video calls that some of the people who are normally high energy seem to have much less energy. Staying motivated when working remotely involves more than just setting up a work area and logging into a video call. The stresses of accomplishing tasks without your colleagues close by, distractions at home, news of the world, fear about safety when going out, and the desire to do something other than sit at home can be exhausting. In addition, some people are also experiencing uncertainty about future wages.

When I first decided to write about motivation, I didn’t want it to be all about working from home because of the COVID-19 virus. Remote work existed before all of this. It’s just more widespread now.

Dr. Evans Baiya, Fast Company, May 2020

What happens when you run an experiment and the outcome is not what you had planned?

One of the traps of experimentation is expecting the testing to validate your thinking. It is natural to want the experiment to say yes—even to think that if it doesn’t confirm your idea, it is a failure. Read More

Using ‘Sheltering in Place’ as an Opportunity for Growth April 22, 2020 Posted in: Articles/Media, Ron Price

By Ron Price, Idaho Business Review, April 2020

I have been traveling as an integral part of my career as a business consultant over the last 30 years, working in 15 countries as well as all 50 of the United States. In 2019, I decided it was time to slow down the amount of travel I did for business, largely because of my advancing age and in deference to my wife of 44 years. Now, as I engage the fourth week of “shelter in place,” I am experiencing a sustained period at home unlike anything ever before. And I suspect you are experiencing something unique as well.
