Want to feel More Appreciated & Valued at Work? Here is How!

You go to work happy. Do everything within your power to meet the end of your bargain – do your job!

And your boss or employer never deems it fit to acknowledge your hard work and input.

This is not to say that you are carrying out your job because you hope to be rewarded or praised. I think as humans we just want to feel appreciated.

We want someone to notice that we put in some time to make some achievements.

I get it.

You get it!

Finally, no more Phone Distractions at Work!

I’m sure when you saw the blog title, you rolled your eyes because you are most likely reading this post on your phone.

But, please hold on. What I mean is phone distractions at work…during work hours, especially when you are working on a tight schedule but your phone won’t let you be.

I used to think I wasn’t a phone addict.

I was wrong.

Although I don’t think I’m addicted to my phone since I barely have people calling me. I’m sort of addicted to the social media apps in it. I keep refreshing my phone for updates even when it’s unnecessary.

4 Practical Ways to Stay Calm under Work Pressure

Pressure at work is mostly inevitable. Most workplaces are fast paced and this is majorly not your fault but as a result of business needs and urgencies.

You keep asking yourself if you are making a mistake at some point. Sometimes you are not aware of a mistake you made.

And sometimes you find that you are so uneasy. It’s real. It does happen. You are human after all. You are left to wonder how you got to make a huge error in the first place.

Personality Clash with your Dream Job? Here is the Solution!

If personality clash can be linked to relationships, why then can’t we link it to our jobs and how we feel about implementing it?

We have every reason to believe that we are in a relationship with our jobs/ career. We spend a large amount of time each day at our various workplaces which average at least 7 hours per day.

Personality clash at work is real. If you are an indoor person and your job requires you to be outdoor, that’ll be a big deal for you and possibly a deal breaker. This goes vice versa.

Closing the Gender Pay Gap – Let’s Discuss

As a young girl growing up in Nigeria, I wasn’t conscious of the gender pay gap. Maybe because my mother had always been a career woman and rarely complained of being unfairly treated.

I’m not certain if she was and I doubt it. If at all, she probably hinted that she wanted an increase in salary as most workers would.

4 Ways to Deal with a Coworker who is out to Get you

Have you ever come to that point in time when you feel like a coworker is out to revenge? For whatever reason.

I don’t know about you, but there have certainly been times like that for me. As though we are out for a competition of whatever sort. If you know me too well, you’d know that I hate unhealthy competition. The sky is out there and can contain every one of us. So why bother?!

Besides, unhealthy competition is so much work! Jeez, you’d have to spend hours plotting. Time thinking of how to strike. I’d rather go to bed and have some beauty sleep.

5 Ways to Start up a Conversation at Work (Easy Tips!)

This post will be very useful for a newbie (or not) at work. Since relocating to Canada, I’ve been a newbie at several workplaces and initially, I would struggle with starting up a conversation and cringe at the mere thought of it.

Thinking about it presently, makes me smile.

When I had to intern (one of my best work experience so far), when I had to change jobs a countless number of times during my post grad to find a part-time job that could fit with my schedule.
