Spring rebalancing – update Week 2 and conclusions

4 steps to regaining balance

I don't know about you, but this early spring has been extremely hectic for me.

How to be an awsome Project Manager

"Not everyone can be a Project Manager" it is said. Or at least, that's what I heard in a conversation yesterday.

Career Coaching: why long term plans pay off

Do you have a 5 year career plan? Does your current job make you happy? If not, have you thought about what it would take to improve? In these times of crisis, when most people would be happy doing just any job, I think it's critical that we define what provides a fair level of enjoyment - and ...
