We have an extra day! What are you doing with yours? My team and I are getting together for lunch and that will lead to all kinds of interesting conversations, I’m sure. I hope you invest yours in activities that bring good results your way.

Speaking of investing time wisely, how about joining my Monday Morning Intention Pod? It’s a simple concept to help use the power of community to get your week off to a good start. We join via Zoom (camera off if you want), I welcome everyone and share a thought or two, and then we privately set our own intentions to bring compassion, empathy, and confidence into our workplace. Attendees can share thoughts too, but it’s not a requirement. Then, off we go. Email me to learn more and get the link to the meeting.

And in the meantime, here are a few stories to help you make better, more informed decisions as you and your team co-create the workplace of the future:
