For almost two decades, my job in organizations was to identify and help fix problems that ended up saving them millions of dollars.
No matter where I worked, people were at the center of every problem as they often lacked the time, money or knowledge to do the job efficiently. The struggle to obtain those resources affected their behavior, interactions and performance.
Fascinated with people’s behavior in and out of the workplace, I realized there was a natural symbiosis between their professional and personal lives (i.e., things they do at home affect them at work and vice versa).
Over the years I struggled professionally to manage departments without enough funding to adequately perform the job. Personally I’ve struggled trying to find the time to balance work and family obligations, and to find the right resources to achieve my goals.
I started identifying my issues so I could learn how to overcome obstacles. For example, as a people pleaser I had a problem saying no, and wasted time on unproductive projects and people. I studied these problems thoroughly, and used this learning experience to become better at saying no, which I thankfully finally achieved!
My journey of self-improvement was the genesis behind writing and speaking about how people behave at home, at work, and in life in general. I hope that you join me in bettering myself so that you can become a better person as well.
