BULLYING AT THE WORKPLACE
Organisations are strange and complex social environments. They are fraught with dynamics and undercurrents that ebb and flow beneath the surface.
It should be no surprise then that, not unlike the school playground, the phenomena of bullies, cliques, and favouritism run rampant.
THE POWER OF OPTIMISM
What if there was a way to expand your mind to see greater opportunities?
When people think of having a positive attitude, they tend to think of keeping a smile on their faces and thinking only positive thoughts. But it’s more than that.
Staying positive in the face of adversity, is a valuable skill. When things go well, it is easy to stay positive, but when everything seems like an uphill battle, it can be emotionally and physically draining, dampening one’s spirit and their efficiency.
If you add the Covid-19 factor in, staying positive can sometimes feel like an absolute struggle.
THE POWER OF MISTAKES
The Internet is inundated with advice about how we should learn from our mistakes, and how our failures are our biggest teachers. Yet when push comes to shove, we cannot manage to really wholeheartedly embrace that.
And we’d like to tell you that’s okay.
It’s human to err, but even more so to dislike screwing up. After all, for those things that matter, we put in effort to ensure that we do the best job we possibly can.
Yet sometimes this may not be enough, or sometimes we simply get it wrong.
