My Five Favorite Fascinating Finds: Let’s Get Savvy in September!

Because I'm a bit of a nerd, I get really excited when I read an article or post that I think is particularly thought-provoking, or an idea that is especially innovative. I'll send it out to everyone I know and wait patiently for the wave of wows to come washing back to me. But, alas, most people just don't have the level of enthusiasm that I do for these things.


Why Are People with Soft Skills so Hard to Find?

I'm old. Relatively speaking, anyway; and definitely speaking compared to the majority of my co-workers. I didn't get a cell phone until late 2005 and I wrote most of my college term papers on a typewriter—and, even though I've come a long way in the hipness department, I am still fairly traditional when it comes to my workplace values. So, you can imagine my discomfort in being surrounded by an entire subset of people who share few or none of my old-school viewpoints. (Not to mention that no one ever gets any of my Brady Bunch references!)     

The good news is, I've been able to adapt to (or, in some cases, cope with) the ways of the Millennials, and I have become a lot more tech savvy and trend aware than I would be if I'd stayed inside my shack and yelled at the kids to get off my lawn. So to speak. I think they may have picked up a few of my tricks as well, which means we have a good ol' win-win situation on our hands!  


We Will Never Forget.

Please join us as we pause today, September 11, 2014, to remember the thousands of men and women who were taken from us 13 years ago. We remember their families and friends. We remember the heroes who stepped up to take action and help. We remember our military, continuing to fight for our freedom and safety every day. We remember. We will never forget.
