    Lattice Work: Building Structures That Support Strong Cultures

    Posted by Steve Black on Jun 18, 2019 9:51:35 AM

    In my front yard, a beautiful flowering vine grows. Each spring, it peaks out of the ground and within weeks, it covers a section of a flowerbed. Unfortunately, without proper direction and intentional scaffolding, it overshadows other plants, which experience stunted growth and premature death. The laws of gravity do not have mercy on the covered plants as the unattended vine continues its horizontal crawl. Unintentional damage and destruction take place not because the vine intends to do so. Rather, it is a by-product of growth and a lack of care by the gardener (me).

    Posted by Lily Morgan on May 21, 2019 12:48:42 PM

    "Oh, so this is just an entry-level job?" "I guess it's a good way to get your foot in the door." As an administrative professional, I've heard these sayings more times then I like to count, and I use to believe others were right. I used to believe my role was just entry level, that I should look for a way to move out of my role and into a new one quickly, and enjoying what I do must somehow be…wrong. Then I started to wonder, what if I stopped defining my career path as an administrative professional by their logic? What if I decided to own the fact that I'm good at what I do, I enjoy what I do, and I see the value and impact I have on my team? Less than a year ago, I came to this very impactful realization and just in time!

    Posted by Brad Miller on May 1, 2019 10:33:59 AM

    Let me preface this by saying I am certainly not the healthiest person in the world. I have always tried to make reasonable diet decisions and get out to get some exercise. However, things such as kids, long work days and stress tend to get in the way. I want to share some recent changes I made and how pervasive those have been to my happiness at work, productivity and overall well-being in other areas of my life.
