Episode 30: "PIVOT!"
We made it through a year that blindsided ALL of us--give yourself a hand and cut yourself some slack for making it to the other side of 2020! In this new year, when we can now see a little more clearly what lies ahead, how do we adjust to the changes that we KNOW are happening; in our industry, in the way we do our jobs, in the resources we use to do those jobs? Heather and Kaytee chat about how to pivot if you find yourself in a struggling industry, or even just struggling in your current work environment. Also: close-up magic and flying cockroaches.

Episode 29: Handling Life on a Hybrid Team
Planning for 2021 is already daunting, given the year we've all just had! Especially if you are a manager with employees remote and onsite--or if you are still WFH while many of your teammates are back in the office--you may have a lot of questions about how you are going to "show up" for everyone, even when you can't, you know... show up. In this episode, Heather and Kaytee carve out strategies for managing workload, expectations, and fairness in a hybrid work environment. How do you make up for those lost hallway conversations? How do you demonstrate productivity from afar? How do we teambuild and show appreciation and celebrate accomplishments on the dreaded Zoom???
