Remembering to praise well

I have an amazing team that I manage at work, and I often tell them that the point of praise is not to make them feel good about themselves. Rather, the point of praise is to give them positive feedback on the behaviors I want them to continue or repeat in the future. If it also makes them feel good in the moment, then that is a bonus.…

I am in the car with my son outside of my workplace. It is my day off, but we are here because he wants to visit my team.

Not in the mood to cook

Think about one of those bad days at work. The kind of day in which nothing went right. Let's say you got stuck with some work you didn't want to do, had to smile through some negative comments from customers, figured out a way to stay out of your boss's cross hairs, got some moody text messages from a spouse and a friend, and then you had to fight through traffic the whole way home only to be reminded when you got there that you have to…

The balance that was passed on to you

Like many working parents, I struggle with work/life balance. At least once a day, I wonder if I am spending enough time with my family, or if I am committed enough to my job. I do my best to model a family first attitude for my team, but I know they have seen evidence of me working late into the night from time to time. I hate not knowing how my son will really feel about having two working parents - and the effects upon his life from…

Let that teen get to work

Think about your first job for a moment. I'm guessing that it wasn't your dream job, but I am also guessing that you learned a lot. You probably learned how to deal with a boss, and how to treat customers; you learned how to handle your money and how to own up to your mistakes.…

Too many things; too little time

I was listening to a friend of mine describe her daughter's schedule, and it scared me. She told me how her daughter would come home on the bus by 5:30 pm, start homework, leave for sports practice at 7 pm, return home at 8:15 pm to eat dinner and then do more homework until 10:30. She would then wake up at 5 am the next morning to finish up the rest of her homework. My friend is worried because she knows her daughter isn't getting enough…

Admitting you need sleep is the first step

My son's alarm goes off at 7:35. I can hear him get up, turn the alarm off and then...silence. I know he has gone back to bed. At 8 am, I tentatively go into his room and gently wake him up. He is cranky and angry and tells me that he feels like he didn't sleep at all. I do my best to be gentle with him and coax him into the day, even though I desperately wish I could send him back to bed for a few more hours.…

Working hard for the money

My son was in the loft playing office.



Even if he hadn't told me this several times, I would have been able to figure it out based on the number of "important meetings" and "back-to-back" phone calls he said he had. At some point he told me his…

Can't shake the summertime blues

I am exploring several theories as to why so many friends of mine have the summertime blues right now.



Is it because it is the beginning of August and all the stores have started their back-to-school sales already? I know this is really bothering my son, as he doesn't even want us to visit that section of…

The teenage summer job is: Studying

When I was a teen, I talked to my Mom about getting a job. She told me that I already had a full-time job, which was to be an excellent student. So, I stayed unemployed and maintained excellent grades. When summer approached, I talked to her again about getting a job, and she reminded me that I would be working my whole life: I should enjoy the summer off while I could.…

The women with multiple jobs

After dinner one night, we were looking through some photos and videos of when our son was a one-year-old. Looking back at that age felt like a giant oxymoron: It seemed like forever ago; it seemed like it was only yesterday. I was marveling at how much he has grown up and how much fun he is now when I was struck by the thought about how much easier our life has become.…
