360Learning - time for a break?

Sometimes, you just need to take a second.

Needless to say, the last year has been tough. Between thinking about family spread around the globe, worrying about the pandemic, and doing my best to forge ahead with my responsibilities at work, I’ve been feeling stretched a little too thin. 

That’s why it’s so important to take time out to hit the reset button every once in a while. That way, you can clear your head, get a little perspective, and find the energy you need to push on.

And trust me, the world won’t be going anywhere, even if you do take a pause. No matter what, we’ll still have great tips for you to build Collaborative Learning into your training programs, and expert techniques to support your managers to succeed. We might even have a few great suggestions for how to cross the language barrier at work, or why every organization needs a Chief Learning Officer in the wake of COVID-19.

And because we never stop improving, we’ve also got a great big batch of exciting new product developments we can’t wait to tell you about! 

Pour yourself a cup of something hot, and let’s get into it.

Onboarding Joei 2 | Episode 7, The Break


We’ve all been #WorkingFromHome so long, it’s hard to say where our working lives end and our actual lives begin. Everything just becomes a big muddle, and it’s tough to find the energy you need to do your best work every day. 

When you’re onboarding a whole new team, it’s even easier to feel lost–even though you’re supposed to be the one pointing the way ahead!

In this week’s episode of #OnboardingJoei, I take the time to reflect on my priorities, and I try to find a little breathing room to clear my head. After all, with four new hires coming to the end of their probation periods, there’s a lot to think about–we all need to be at the top of our game.
