9 Trends Shaping the Workplace in 2023: How Leaders Can Become Employers of Choice in a Competitive Talent Landscape
The workplace landscape has shifted dramatically over the past two years. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced businesses to adapt to remote work and hybrid models, and team members have been feeling the effects of burnout more than ever before.

However, how organizations respond to these challenges could determine whether they become an employer of choice.
Overcoming Burnout and Building Resilience: Strategies to Help Prevent Burnout and Help You and Your Team Thrive in a Fast-Paced World
In this article, I’ll share some of the strategies and tools that I’ve used to help prevent burnout in myself and my team, and how you can apply them to your own leadership style.
Burnout is a pervasive issue that affects many people in today’s fast-paced world. It is a state of chronic stress that occurs when we experience prolonged periods of exhaustion, cynicism, and detachment from our work or personal lives. According to productivity expert Chris Bailey, burnout can be described as a “diminishing returns problem,” where we become less productive and efficient as we work longer and harder.
The Office is Where Your Laptop Is
Similarly to the migration of retail to online, COVID has provoked a transition of thinking about where team members actually need to physically be in order to do their job well.
As we adjust our perceptions of what work looks like post COVID, there exists a gulf between what was and what will be when it comes to office geography. Companies have already begun divesting themselves of offices and buildings they formally saw as essential in order to house their workforce. Conference rooms lie dormant and have been replaced by Zoom calls. The office phone system has similarly been replaced by cell phones, text messages and FaceTime.
How to Improve Your Quality of Life by 33% Today
I touched on the importance of sleep in my article, “Three Foundations & The First Step Toward Mindful Leadership.” As I explained in that piece, quality sleep is one of the central foundation stones of optimal physical and emotional health. And yet it is underrated by some, and elusive for many.
As with many things, getting great sleep can be a process.
The first step in this process is truly understanding, and appreciating, the importance of sleep to our health and emotional wellbeing.
How to Achieve the Ultimate State of Wellness
That title should raise some red flags for you immediately.
I mean, who can predict what it would take to achieve the ultimate state of wellness for any individual?
There are commonly held beliefs, a great deal of science and a plethora of information available on the achievement of aspects of wellness, but “The Ultimate State of Wellness”? That’s a very individual and ethereal thing.
Wellness Real Estate Return on Wellness (ROW) = ROI
I remember the elation I felt the first time I completed the 13-minute ab track in my mentor’s aerobics class. Those were the days of “burn baby, burn”.
At that point in the fitness industry’s history, the term “Wellness” was just coming into our vernacular. Most of us fitness zealots didn’t really understand what wellness was, but on some level, it resonated with me as the way of the future.
As my career in fitness morphed into a career in wellness, my appreciation for the more holistic benefits of balancing body, mind and spirit were accentuated.
Does Our Built Environment Affect Our Relationships?
The “Big Mac” symbolizes the belief that more is better. If one beef patty is good, wouldn’t two beef patties be better?
Similarly, the colloquialism of the “McMansion” suggests that bigger is better when it comes to homes.
It feels as though in modern housing estates with tightly packed McMansions, compromise on the lot size is a given in order to get a bigger house for the money.
This is not just developers trying to maximize their land asset, it is also consumers saying they’d rather get a bigger house and forgo lot size in order to achieve additional square footage.
What Does a Healthy Community Look Like Beyond COVID?
When we explore the power of community, nothing brings it into focus more clearly and powerfully than the varied responses to the COVID crisis. Through this lens, the dichotomy of our present reality also comes into stark relief.
As COVID descended squarely on the shoulders of humanity, partisanship and commercial interests were squarely at odds with the need for communities to work in harmony and solidarity to stave off escalating infection and spiraling death rates.
Simple Management Practice to Elevate Your Leadership
Studies show that positive feedback needs to be delivered at a ration of 6:1 in order to counterbalance constructive feedback.
