Assessing Your Work From Home Performance

The ‘work at home’ phenomenon is new for many organizations and managers. Assessing the performance of those who work remotely is a work in progress. It won’t be perfect in its early days.

Managing Your Email So It Doesn’t Manage You

“One of the greatest consumers of your time is processing your email. A research report showed that email is the second-most time-consuming activity next to ‘role-specific tasks.”

Performance Reviews During The Pandemic

In the early days of COVID 19, many human resource managers advised that evaluations be postponed. They assumed that business would get back to normal in six months. That didn’t happen. If organizations continue to delay evaluations, it is a sure sign that the exercise is unnecessary.

Evaluating Your Skills As A Communicator

I find it funny that not that long ago we were warning our teenagers about the dangers of too much screen time. Now because we are working from home, we are the ones with the screen time problem.

Fundraising Is Not Just About Raising Money

If you lead a nonprofit organization, how well do you know your top donors? While some individuals are comfortable with writing a large check to national non-profit when people contribute to local organizations, they frequently want to know more about how their donations will be used and the people who will be spending their money. That’s why leaders must also be comfortable with their fundraising role.

Take Your Vacation Time

Because of Covid, this Independence Day holiday…and the summer…may feel different. But it is still important to unplug and take some time off.

Don’t Let Fear Stop You

Sometimes I worry about making important decisions where the correct choice is unclear. I’m an over-thinker. Here’s a personal story about how fear impacted me.

Remotely On-boarding Your New Employee
