Keep Covid stress out of your customer communication

12 steps executives can take to hold toxicity at bay and put good karma into the universe

TL;DR: Pandemic stress-related toxic communication can creep into your customer communication. Don’t let it! Set the example, nip toxicity in the bud, protect your team from incoming, build in rest, celebrate the good stuff, and codify that positive voice in your company styleguide.

As we think about healthy communication at work, we’re reminded of the saga of Away. The direct-to-consumer luggage company experienced such massive growth that it couldn’t keep up with demand. As customer requests piled up despite the customer service team’s 16-hour workdays and canceled vacations, executives blamed the team for not keeping up. They reportedly became so toxic that the team virtually imploded, service quality plummeted, and the story unfolded in an unflattering media exposé.

WOMEN WHO WORK FROM HOME UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ORGANIZED

Getting organized  is the key to Efficiency, Effectiveness and Economic Success

If you want both your business and your home life to flourish, it is important to get organized.. Taking some simple organizational steps can keep you from being swamped with work and overwhelmed with laundry in no time.

START SMALL

Organizing your home will help make your business more organized and vice-versa. However, don't try to get organized in a weekend or even several days. Work up to a level of organization. Start with one thing such as your desk. Everything you need should have a place. Donate or discard things you don't need. Do this in stages and sections. Once you organize a space, when it's out of place, it's easy to put it back in its home. Use bins, cabinets and shelves to help you stay more organized.

ESTABLISH BUSINESS HOURS

Setting up specific working times during each day has many benefits. First, you'll be more cons…

Setting Realistic Goals

You must be realistic and honest with yourself. If you set goals that you can't possibly reach, you are setting yourself up for failure. You will make yourself frustrated and unhappy. The key here is a realistic and honest assessment of your potential. Although most people will be unnecessarily harsh in their assessments, it is easy to become too hopeful when you start breaking down barriers. If, for instance, you're extremely interested in and fond of music and would love to be a singer, it would be unreasonable to set a singing career as your goal if you can't sing a note (some talents are inborn). But if you are knowledgeable about the music business and would be happy to be involved in some other capacity, then it would be reasonable to pursue a career in the business. Be wary of making otherwise perfectly reasonable goals unattainable because of stringent time frames. When you set a goal, you will most likely set times for achieving certain steps along your way to achievi…

6 Tips for Finding Optimism

Optimism…it’s a four syllable word that can be harder to find than diamonds in South Africa. But believe it or not, you too can tap into the earth of your surroundings and dig up a rich store of feel-good. Here are a few ways to do that.

1: Find laughter. These days, it isn’t hard to find. With Youtube and social media, there is not shortage of memes, videos, stories, and more to get you crackalackin. You could also rent a funny movie, watch stand up comedy, or hangout with funny people. Laughter will lead you to smiling, and smiling will lead you to feeling good. Which brings us to our next point…

2: Turn the frown upside down. It’s hard to believe that something as smiling can improve your mood, but studies have linked outward acts of happiness to an internal shift. Practice by looking in the mirror and smiling, even it if feels cheesy, stupid, and inauthentic. Hold your smile for a minute, two minutes, five minutes…see how long you can go. Start the d…

Success Takes Longer Than You Think

Big Goals.

Large visions for your life.

Any major success you want to obtain…

Is probably going to take a lot longer than you anticipate when you start the journey.

It’s just human nature.

We get a good idea about something we want to be, do, have and the idea captures our minds and emotions. The honeymoon phase is awesome. Daydreaming and brainstorming of your exciting new idea and the world of possibility that will open up once you reach this new goal.

You are energized and ready to take on the world.

If you are new to this game, I’m sorry to tell you but you have a mountain ahead of you. And no one has ever successfully scaled a mountain quickly and easily.

Sure, from a distance, the mountain may not look that big. It looks like fairly smooth terrain and a manageable grade when you stare at the mountain from a few miles away. You excitedly sprint to your starting point.

That’s when …
