You Must Develop Diverse, Global Leaders

Posted on November 30th, 2015 by The Learning Factor

Walking the tightrope of a global economy is a difficult yet increasingly essential feat businesses must perform to thrive. Those that only cater to one audience have a greater chance of falling behind their competitors and losing market share. 
 
Implementing sound leadership development is an important strategy to help businesses crack into diverse and emerging markets. Having leaders who understand how a diverse workforce fosters a larger consumer base might seem like common sense, but company executives often overlook the connections between diversity and leadership development, and the business suffers because of it.

The Simple Technique To Fit A 40-Hour Workweek Into 16.7 Hours

Posted on November 30th, 2015 by The Learning Factor

I used to work a lot — 60, 80, or even 100 hours a week.

I let my work be a big part of how I defined myself. I wore those insane hours like a badge of honor . . . I loved telling people how “busy” I was and how much I “had to do”.

Sound familiar?

Looking back, I realize I used my work to try and fill a void in myself. The problem was that this void was like a black hole. No matter how many hours I worked, it never seemed to fill it up. If anything, it made me feel worse.

One day I’d had enough. Truth be told, I’d had way more than enough. I stopped and reevaluated my life, trying to figure out what was important to me, and what wasn’t.

I had to make a big change. I had to figure out how to work smarter, not harder. I needed to optimize my work process to do more in less time.

I needed the Pomodoro Technique. Here’s how this incredible simple time management system changed my workday—and ultimately, my life. I think it can do the same for you.
