    Have a boss who sends emails as late as midnight and as early as 4am regularly. She is also “available” on skype pretty much all evening. Absolutely crazy.

    I've never done it for the trying to game how much I'm I'm working. But it works pretty well for other reminders for people or let's say you know someone is on vacation and don't want an email in the middle of their massive back log and send it Monday at 9am so it's at the top of their inbox

    cant believe I aint posted here in a long time. Our new partner agency are the kings of this thread.

    • Let's circle back and connect on this.
    • We've got different touch points to align on here; we'll circle back around.
    • At a micro level we're fine...on a macro level, still some ideas to align on...
    • I tagged you in the google slides deck, let's ensure we we wrap up. This deck is rogue until we pull it back into our environment.
    • What's the story on this slide? What's the big picture?
    • Any other avenues we can pursue to put this strategy to bed?

    Finished my reviews like 2 weeks ago. My favorite part is that HR specifically tells us that we're only to consider actions from January through current for the review.

    Basically October-December is a freebie

    Keywordschronicles the rise of a new vocabulary in the twenty-first century. From Silicon Valley to the White House, from primary school to higher education, and from the factory floor to the church pulpit, we are all called to be innovators and entrepreneurs, to be curators of an ever-expanding roster of competencies. Think of the zealotry of the disruptive entrepreneur and the resilience of the agile thought-leader for a sense of the ideal personality traits of our time: flexible, inexhaustible, and never not at work. Many of these words have a secret history that informs their modern usage in surprising ways―innovation was once “false prophecy,” and before “stakeholder” crossed the lips of a single non-profit director it was used by conservative economists opposed to the New Deal.

    In a series of short essays on terms like “entrepreneur,” “sustainability,” “artisanal,” and “synergy,” Keywords uses the vocabulary of neoliberalism to discover the contemporary spirit of capitalism. Each entry explores a popular term that displays an affinity for hierarchy, competition, “the marketplace,” and the virtual technologies of our time. The key words all share a celebration of decisive “leadership,” dreamy artistry, prophetic “vision,” and an inexhaustible commitment to work: the pillars of an ideal innovative self.

    Oh wow. My company is thinking of moving our corporate headquarters where I work to a new building when our lease is up in 2020.

    This morning I got pulled into a "Visioning Session" led by consultants to consider interior designs for a new building or renovation of the current one. In two hours we participated in "Pick a Hand" and "Trash or Treasure" exercises to help determine what we value most in a workspace, an "Imagery Review" to look at photos of generic corporate office setups with everything from bright lights and chrome trim to reclaimed shiplap and open ceilings and determine what we like best, and then a discussion on how to create a "Branded Environment".

    but what's important is that everyone human who experiences your office space makes an emotional connection to your brand story. when a guest sees the wall color, they think more than a color but how your brand enriches their lives through meaningful connective tissue between their rational and emotional drivers. how does the color of the bathroom promote, elevate, and connect your employees to your brand? it's a synergistic approach
