To Empower Others: Use the Four Cornerstones of Effective Feedback

Simon Day

From the moment we are born we are both receiving and giving feedback. Feedback from family and friends shapes us when we are young and continues to play an important part in our adult lives. Considering that feedback contributes so much to who we are and who we are becoming, I find it very surprising that so little attention is paid to how effectively we deliver, receive and act on feedback at work, and elsewhere.

Change Your Thoughts: by Dr. Marcia Reynolds

Outsmart Your Brain: How to Master Your Mind When Emotions Take the Wheel

For years, “Change your thoughts, you change your behavior” was the mantra for life improvement. Through experience and science, we have since learned that affirmations rarely change behavior when emotions have taken the wheel.

The Evolution of Office Themes

The Evolution of Office Themes

Evolution is an interesting concept because it’s the change that’s natural, logical, and involved. And although Themes (Office Themes) did not exist in their present form before Office 2007 for Windows, they did evolve from the humble PowerPoint template. And as you get deeper into how Themes work, you’ll find that PowerPoint uses these Themes in amazing ways, and shares them with Word and Excel. That’s the reason they are called Office Themes rather than PowerPoint Themes.
