Make Yourself #1

Posted by Rene' Carpenter on May 21, 2020 9:44:12 AM

Enough with the COVID! Feel happier and healthier when you practice self-care at work and at home.

Put on your own oxygen mask before assisting others. We’ve all heard it before, but when it comes to our everyday lives, we don’t tend to apply that simple message. Remember: You can’t take care of others, if you don’t first take care of yourself.

Everything is so crazy right now, like a page out of science fiction novel. But now more than ever before, self-care is so important. Our schedules have been turned upside down, and it becomes easier to become complacent about taking good care of ourselves both mentally and physically.

Self-care can often be difficult for people. Practicing self-care can feel selfish or counter-intuitive. But, thankfully, there are small steps you can take to put yourself first. And in doing so, you give your best to your job, family and the rest of your life.

Staying On Top of Your Health During COVID-19

Posted by Rene' Carpenter on Apr 15, 2020 9:48:02 AM

Stress Less!
To reduce stress and anxiety, calm the mind, eat wisely, stay moving and relax your nervous system —we've got you! Try these tips:

• Social distancing is fine. Social isolation is not. As more of the world goes into shelter in place mode, it’s important to maintain social connections. Call friends and family members and turn that video camera on for your remote work meetings.

• When Experiencing Anxiety, Make It RAIN: Recognize what’s going on in your mind and body. Allow the experience to be there, just as it is. Investigate your thoughts & emotions with kindness. Non-Identify: you are not your thoughts & emotions.

• Take a News and Social Media Break: Over the next few weeks, visit news and social media sites with care. Twice a day is plenty. Instead, improve your wellbeing by focusing on the smaller tasks that are in your direct control.

• When Stressed, Use SBNRR: The Stop - Breathe - Notice - Reflect - Respond technique helps to interrupt the wandering mind to bring you back to a point of calm and focus… and especially when you’ve been triggered.


• Make Gratitude a Daily Practice: Each day when you wake, name three things you’re grateful for. Do the same when you go to bed. Encourage your family to incorporate this helpful practice to train a positive mindset during this challenging time.

As the end of 2019 nears and we wrap our minds around typing “2020,” it’s reasonable for our thoughts to shift toward making plans and goals for the new year.

The motivational effect that ringing in the new year can have on us is powerful, and you should make the most of it by creating a plan for the long term, not just through January.

Holidays are NOT a HAPPY

time for everyone.

For some, the thought of potential conflict, criticism, and even uncomfortable topics can turn planning for holiday gatherings into a source of dread, rather than joy.

When "Downsizing" Is a Must

Posted by Rene' Carpenter on Jul 10, 2019 2:52:37 PM

We posted this blog last July when the economy was great and jobs where plentiful.  And then again in May after the virus took hold. Now more than ever downsizing COULD be a must. We are here to help!

You, as a manager, must be prepared if your company is planning to layoff several employees at once. That means knowing how timing and details affect the situation of downsizing, even if it is an ongoing process. 

Workforce attrition is one of the easiest—and least uncomfortable—ways to downsize your organization. The slow but steady method can be realized by not filling vacant positions and/or putting in place a hiring freeze. Because the responsibilities of departing employees may need to be shifted to remaining staff, this method requires a strong alignment between organizational goals and talent management.
