Bouncing Back

Getting back to normal after a rough patch

Whether you’ve had a bad day, a bad week, or a run of struggles, there are lots of methods to explore for picking yourself back up and rebooting to have a better day. Self-care is having a much needed moment and people everywhere are paying extra attention to their overall wellbeing. Putting yourself first rather than last allows you to be your best for your family, friends and career. Here are some things you can do to lift yourself up when you feel down.
 
Mindset Shift
Chaos and calamity can plague you long after the initial drama is over. To lighten your mood and keep residual negative thoughts from getting out of hand, focus on personal growth and life lessons instead. You can find peace through nurturing practices like meditation, prayer, talk therapy, writing or even reaching out to trusted friends or family to listen. Try to steer clear of negative people, news, or conversations to avoid additional stress while you are still vulnerable from the experience.
 
Guilty Pleasures
Simple indulgences can promote absolute bliss. Whatever makes you swoon with happiness, be it shoe shopping, a long hot bath with a glass of champagne (while the kids play outside), or splurging at a trendy spa, do it! A little “you time” can help create the harmony you need in your life at the moment.
 
Get Creative
Artistic endeavors, like working in a garden, knitting, dancing, playing an instrument or painting, can be great outlets for relieving stress and have the power to put you in a happy place. The key is to throw yourself into whatever you love to do and get lost in it; even if it’s just for an afternoon. The things that seem to make time fly can leave you with a wonderful sense of productivity and creativity.

Why Women Rock in the Workplace

Gender intelligence and how it pays off

In their new book, Results At The Top, authors Barbara Annis and Richard Nesbitt say companies that practice what they call, “gender intelligence” are the ones to watch. What’s gender intelligence? Simply put, it’s an inclusive environment that not only actively seeks to include women in leadership and decision making, but also creates a culture where female management and decision making are valued as much as the more traditional, predominately male, style.
 
Annis, who heads up the Gender Intelligence Group says gender intelligent companies, “secure and retain the best talent, make better strategic decisions, produce more relevant products and achieve superior financial results.”

Indeed, research by the Glass Ceiling Research Center shows that the 25 best firms for women outperformed the industry medians on key measures of profitability. These companies had on average:
  • 34% higher profit margin
  • 18% higher asset value
  • 69% higher stockholder equity
Similar findings from a McKinsey Report titled, “Women Matter -- Women at the Top of Corporations” state that companies with more female leadership show the best performance. In comparing the top quartile of companies in terms of share of women in executive committees to companies that have all-male executive committees, researchers found that the companies with more female leaders outperformed the male-heavy companies by 41% in return on equity and by 56% in operating results.
 
What about the newest generation of working women? Well, they’re the best educated, most diverse-oriented and most confident generation of women yet. And millennials – male and female – are the most independent minded of any generation. Rather than take on traditional roles when it comes to work and family balance, researchers say millennials are highly flexible. In fact, more millennial women (66%) than men (56%) value career success. The bottom line: breadwinner moms and primary caregiver dads are on the rise, and just may be de rigueur in the future.
