Space Planning - Maximize Efficiency

Sally Allen's picture

A person's work environment is very important. After all, we spend nearly as much time at work as we do at home. According to a recent North American Survey, nearly 50% of workers rank their work environment as the most critical element of job satisfaction.

What makes a high quality work environment? Space design. It is a key component for increased productivity and efficiency.

Managing Depression

Sarah Reiff-Hekking's picture

Depression is a “long-lasting melancholia” according to Freud, it's a “loss of the capacity to love, a lowering of the self-regarding feelings”; it does not go away after a few days, and it is not caused by lack of will or by weakness.

The disorders it causes can be treated successfully; it is then up to us to maintain a balance in our private lives and at work.

The ideas expressed in this Knowledge Pill are partly based on experiences, and on relocation or coaching interviews.

Benefits of Physical Exercise

Cheryl Jones-Reardon's picture

Those who engage in regular physical exercise experience many benefits which affect all aspects of wellness; physiological, intellectual, emotional, and social/spiritual.

Beyond decreasing your risk for disease and improving physical appearance, regular physical activity improves relationships and strengthens the mind. Regular physical exercise also increases productivity and creativity.

If you exercise, especially without head phones or watching TV, you'll be more tuned into your body.

As a result, you'll be better able to take good care of yourself.

Delegating Techniques

John Heckers's picture

The greatest key to professional success is the ability to effectively delegate. There are three kinds of delegation:

  • up delegation,
  • cross delegation and
  • down delegation.

All three are necessary for true business success, but most people only 'down' delegate, or, in other words, delegate to those whom they supervise. This means that most people are doing far more work than they need to do.

This module will do a short examination of the techniques used by master delegators.
