How to Rediscover Your Inspiration at Work

Posted on September 6th, 2017 by The Learning Factor

When we’re inspired, our work hums. We have a sense of purpose, buoyed by the feeling that our talents are being put to good use. We’re doing what we should be doing. And then, just like that, inspiration evaporates. Perhaps a negative comment from your boss deflated you or you’re not excited about a particular assignment. Inspiration can be frustratingly fleeting and difficult to recover when lost. Even if you’re lucky enough to have a job you love, it’s common to go through lengthy periods where you need to dig deep to feel excited about your work.

3 Touch Points to Better Engage a Multigenerational Workforce

Posted on August 7th, 2017 by The Learning Factor

Many workplaces today are in the unprecedented position of having five generations working together, side-by-side.

While most would agree that generalizations like generational buckets are helpful only to a point, multigenerational workforces challenge employers to meet a broad range of needs and expectations. Making the matter more complicated: Typical full-time and part-time positions are now being augmented with gig economy roles such as freelance, contract and temporary employment options.

There is an ongoing debate in Australian business about the need for more female leaders. Confronted by the lack of leadership development opportunities for young women in the workplace, Sarah Liu decided to do something about it.

 

In 2012, Liu, who is also the founder of Gemini3, founded The Dream Collective, in order to encourage employers in Australia to shift their approach from focusing on the senior executive level towards developing entry-level talent.

 

“Australian corporates need to fast shift their approach from focusing on the senior executive level to turning their attention to the pipeline of young female talent coming through their doors,” Liu said.
