COMMUNICATION AND INFLUENCE

Want to learn how to manage your team more effectively? READ THIS BOOK! Radical Candor, by Kim Scott. Kim’s been teaching leadership for decades at companies like Apple, Google, Dropbox and Twitter. That alone should get you to read her book, but she will teach you to “become a great boss without losing your humanity.”

If you don’t walk away buzzing with new insights to yourself and your team after reading this, then maybe you should be writing a book! https://amzn.to/2pikA1v

PRODUCTIVITY AND TIME MANAGEMENT

How many of you work late into the evening during month-end close or an audit? Have you ever been told not to send emails after hours? Have you prepared the emails at night to send out in the morning and then forgotten them because it was mentally “done” in your mind? If you use Outlook, you can schedule them to be sent whenever you want. No more forgetting and no more worrying about bothering the client at night.
