What if you could take the very worst that life has given you, the darkest of the dark, the most painful, traumatic experiences, and turn them into hope and healing for others.

In this episode of Think Tank of Three, our guest says she knew that the only way she could rise up would be by breaking the cycle of sexual abuse, and now she’s lifting others up with her.

I don’t know about you, but I am spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME working from home.

I’m doing a terrible job of creating space between my home office and my home life.

I find that when I acknowledge I’m not taking care of myself, then I catch myself in problematic behaviors more frequently and have a better chance of correcting them.

I’m sharing some tactics that can help create distance from work, when you’re stuck working from home. I hope the Think Tank helps keep me accountable! Continue Reading Tactics to Create Distance When Working From Home

You never know how you’ll respond to a crisis until you’re in one. You can prepare. You can take classes. You can even run drills. But it’s never the same as the real thing.

Congratulations, Think Tank tribe. You now know how you’ll respond to a global crisis!

And though we are writing this intro with a bit of sarcasm and a hint of snark… we are also completely serious about giving yourself credit for however you are responding.

How many people have become overnight homeschooling parents?

Work from home wonder women?

Zoom and video conferencing gurus?

Seriously. Even if you feel like you’re failing (which, we can confidently say, you are not!), you deserve credit. We are all trying to navigate our way through something that has never been experienced before. There’s no guidebook for anyone to follow.

It’s with this in mind that our Julie Holton and her team at mConnexions launched a special live Q&A series called Expert Connexions, to help sort through the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. ICYMI: our Audrea Fink joined her live on Facebook to talk about how life has changed, personally and professionally.

There are a million articles on the internet right now about how to stay sane while in quarantine.

We’re told to use the time to rest.

Use the time to be super productive.

Set virtual happy hours.

Take some meditative alone time.

No matter how you plan to spend your social distance time, at some point, everyone needs a little human connection. Yes, even you, introverts. Obviously you, extroverts and of course those that fall somewhere in between.

Humans are a social species but not everyone is really interested in a million virtual happy hours serving “quarantinis.” So what else is there?

I’ve pulled together a few tools to help you navigate how you want to socialize from a distance. Continue Reading Staying Connected During Social Distancing

Take a deep breath. Give yourself a moment to reset. Now is the time for all of us to support each other and try to make the best of an unexpected situation.

There’s no doubt, we are living in uncertain times. With news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) constantly filling everyone’s newsfeed, people are unsure and nervous about what may happen next. It seems every hour there’s an update from leaders across the globe, mandating social distancing, canceling large sporting events, and making travel recommendations. It’s hard not to think about how this could impact you and your loved ones, and the rest of the world– and how it may continue to impact us all.

Did you grow up knowing exactly what you wanted to be? 

Were you clear how to get to where you wanted to go? 

Did you ever worry that if you didn’t do it just right, you just couldn’t do it? 

Today we are talking about career paths and the meandering roads to success.

Is an office dress code about professionalism or subversive sexism?

This is a real question I’m asking. In fact, this entire post will be questions.

This topic comes up here and there for me and I’ve debated writing about it before. I get started writing and then I end up with more questions. I decide that dress codes are inherently sexist and then I change my mind.

I’m sharing this post now because I’d love to hear your thoughts. Continue Reading What Not to Wear: Sexism or Professionalism?

How’s that New Year’s resolution going?

Is that the sound of crickets I hear? Smirking? A resentful sigh?

Shrug it off. Let it go. It’s time to move on.

Seriously! Give yourself permission to let go of that resolution that you know is never going to happen — so that you can actually make a strategic plan to achieve your goals. And, let’s be clear: that resolution isn’t going to happen because of the half-hearted way most of us throw around the idea of resolutions.
