Fun fact: all @lniquelinens team members cross train across our facility — from laundry room to sales office to delivery truck and everywhere in-between. So you might imagine that our general manager Scott put some previously learned sewing skills to the test when working on a special project recently. We’ll show you the finished product after Saturday night! #thatsyourhint#lniquelinens#workplaceculture#cle#cleveland#eventprofs
Did you know that @kaptivo_ is offering free devices to every airport in the UK after the recent London airport fiasco when their flight information systems failed, and attendants had to write flight information manually on whiteboards?

"New windows make a huge difference in the overall quality of the building, comfort and energy efficiency," says Aaron Breitkreutz, Maintenance Manager with Society of Hope.
Birch Manor was built in 1981 and is now designated for senior residents in Kelowna. Our Centra team upgraded 89 windows for all 39 units.♥️ Aaron Breitkreutz takes us through his experience with Centra and how the window transformation developed.👍
To start with, it's beautiful that I've woke up to this lovely gesture from my amazing man who knows me well enough to know that I'd be ecstatic to include my work family in my food preparation. This small addition of yours to all else that you've done left a special impact in my heart that would never fade ♥️ @hamzahedelbi
What I want to emphasize on however is how well are you willing to invest in your relationships at work. Be mindful that you spent most of your day at your job and it's rather pivotal to your general satisfaction and drive to come to work that regularly.
How to make that happen?
Look after one another. Again, we are all going through our own struggles that we try our best to put aside and give it all at work, but that doesn't mean that we cannot make things easier for those around us.
Be attentive to the small details they give out. They might randomly say I haven't had a good night sleep, I have had a rough day so far, I haven't had ant food yet, etc .. work on that, and see how beautifully the relationship will evolve. It means a lot to anyone once another person is paying that much attention to what they have to say and what they need to keep going. It means a lot to get the unexpected; find a rose with a note, a coffee with a smiley face, a box of chocolate... At their disk at an unexpected time. And trust me, it'll make them brighten up. It'll give them motive. It'll give them hope. It'll draw a smile on their face.
Imagine the opportunities that you have to make that happen and be a reason why someone's smiling today!
Imagine being that one person who keeps the relationships tight and healthy and possibly changes the perspective one has as he's heading to his duty.
Imagine leaving a special beautiful warmth in their soul by this random act of kindness and concern and showing them that they matter and in the middle of all the life's hustles they still were granted time to be taken care of.
Be the kind of change they need♥️
Be a model on how healthy and beautiful work-relationships can be ♥️
Set the bar high and keep revisiting and readjusting not to be off track one day♥️
FAQ: “After a particularly stressful couple of weeks at work, I burst out crying in a small team meeting. I’m embarrassed, I don’t think people should cry at work and I think it undermines us as women. How do I save?”⠀
Jess: There was a time where I thought crying at work wasn’t ok...and now, I feel completely opposite. Everyone cries!! But I get that you feel embarrassed, so let’s turn this into a learning lesson where you end up saving face, humanizing yourself, and show up as a leader...⠀

Travelling all over to work with my clients, to both remote and metropolitan areas, really is a blessing. While, at times, driving long distances can be exhausting, the rewards outweigh any cons (which are usually a distant memory the second I arrive and am rewarded with smiling clients who are actively invested in their leadership journey). #sofortunate#leadershipjourney
Curious if you think we can compartmentalise and switch off completely at work?
Conversely, are you able to come home and not bring the workday home with you?
I feel work/life balance is a fallacy and we will strike more of a ‘balance’ when we can bring authenticity and more of who we really are to work.
This does not mean being emotional all day and not being productive. It simply means bringing more of what it means to be a human to work.
But we need a culture at work to support this.
More importantly, workplaces need to be shown how to do this.
This connects us. ⠀⠀
And we are made to connect.
Becoming more aware of our physical presence and how it affects others is an important leadership (and personal!) learning. .
When communicating feedback whether positive or negative, how you deliver is just as important as your content. .
Well meaning advice can be mis-construed if your body language and tone aren’t right. .
And remember...”Seek to understand and then be understood” (as Stephen Covey says).
"Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn”
Business owners experience this no matter what stage they are at - it’s normal - a certain amount of risk is good and necessary for growth - it’s all about understanding what the ROI on the risk is.
