If you have the Fear of Phone Conversations at Work, You can Overcome it Now!

I had something close to a heart-to-heart talk (phone conversation) with someone in the past and I’ll never forget what this person told me. He said: “Everyone has their own struggles no matter how trivial it may appear.”

*This is a collaborative post.

From the perspective of both employees and employers, the working environment is something that can dictate the overall feel of an office. Regardless of what type of working scenario it is, the issue of office culture inevitably crops up, and that’s not to say that it is exclusive to office environments.

An Effective Guide to Taking a Sabbatical from your Business/ Work

There are times in life when you just need a break.

If you have been working on your business for years, forgoing holiday celebrations and vacations in favor of pursuing your business goals, then there’s a good chance you’re long overdue a break. Business owners who don’t take time for themselves will soon find themselves facing burnout, and everything they worked for in their business will soon suffer in turn.

Learn How Millions of People Negotiate at Work

When many people hear ‘negotiation’, they think a pay increase, but it shouldn’t be. Is a salary increase the only thing that can be negotiable in the workplace? From my experience, it isn’t. I’ve been able to negotiate other things from time to time.

If everyone shared the same belief and thought like we did, life might have been somewhat easier to navigate. Reality check— that’s not so! Learning the art of negotiation is the only way out.

At work, you’ll encounter various types of people with diverse personalities. It becomes imminent that negotiating your way around things and reaching a compromise mutually benefiting to both parties is the proper way to handle affairs in the workplace.
