Dear Monday Motivators,
Happy Monday! It’s that time of year again for the Office Dynamics staff to put everything they have got into high gear this week. We are one week out from our 22nd Annual Conference for Administrative Excellence, which sold out in May! While we have been preparing all year for this grand event, this week we will be working long hours to make sure every detail is in place and all is ready for our 250 attendees coming from around the world.

There are numerous elements of resiliency. In fact, I covered 9 elements in a webinar I hosted in February this year. They include: personal responsibility, realistic optimism, self-assurance, courageous communication and more.
Today, I want to give you a peek into a speech I am giving next week called Future-Proofing Your Career.

Adam provided several useful tips for our webinar audience and I’d like to share some of them with you. These are tips and advice that really stood out for me. If you would like to view the entire one-hour webinar, check it out here on our blog. Adam also is going to be a speaker at our annual conference for administrative excellence this October.

Regular breaks are a great way to stay positive and uplifted throughout the day… you’re not working through your breaks, are you?
Does this sound like you?
– You normally work through your break periods.
– You eat your meals at your desk or miss lunch entirely.
– You head into work early and you leave too late.
– You bring work home at night and sometimes over the weekends.
Now, we’re not going to harp into you all the reasons why you must take a break, instead we’re going to give you 5 steps to take a much needed break.
