The Source Advisory Panel: Liz Spratlin

The Source Advisory Panel: Liz Spratlin

Dec 12, 2018

Liz Spratlin's career shift from politics and public relations to successful retail owner might not have been the most obvious path, but when it came time for a change, she did what so many are too intimidated to do: jumped in with both feet. We are so proud to have her experience - and style - on our Advisory Panel.

A Professional Thanksgiving

A Professional Thanksgiving

Nov 14, 2018

We’ve reached the time of year when we’re supposed to pause and show gratitude for the blessings in our lives. Whether we truly find time to do this in between crazy family gatherings and excess turkey is another matter altogether. In the week leading up to Thanksgiving as you hopefully wrap up some loose ends in the office before a few days off, there’s no better time to pause and specifically reflect on what you’re thankful for professionally.

Venting at Work: Helpful or Hurtful?

Venting at Work: Helpful or Hurtful?

Oct 31, 2018

Expert advice usually tells you to share your emotions and not keep problems bottled up. You’ve probably also heard that having a trusted friend you can talk to is a good thing. Don’t misunderstand – these are definitely all positive things. But what does this look like within the workplace? Are venting coworkers cathartic? Or problematic?

Changing Lanes

Changing Lanes

Oct 24, 2018

Each of us knows the familiar pang of feeling stuck. We've been stuck in relationships, in awkward situations, in traffic... Many times, we don't realize we're in the mud until we've been standing in it for a while. A family friend once described it to me as driving in a rut in the road. Once you realize you're in it, it's exponentially harder to change lanes.

Sick Day Etiquette

Sick Day Etiquette

Oct 17, 2018

The shift in seasons brings many exciting things along with it. Unfortunately, it also brings an uptick in sickness. The flu season, along with many other exciting bugs, is quickly approaching. Like every other aspect of our professional lives, sick days also come with unspoken etiquette. We can all name coworkers who have broken these implied rules and not let anyone know they were sick, leaving everyone wondering where they were. Or even worse, those who refuse to take a sick day and end up getting the rest of the office sick.

Generational Griping

Generational Griping

Oct 10, 2018

There's a meme circulating on social media that reads, “Behind every broke Millennial, is a Baby Boomer who makes 6 figures but can’t open a PDF.”It's humorous commentary on what is becoming a notable issue for almost all companies – accommodating generational differences.

Time to Spare?

Time to Spare?

Oct 03, 2018

The Source is no stranger to the issue of time management. This topic, along with work-life balance, is one we get frequent inquiries about, and they definitely go hand-in-hand. You cannot obtain work-life balance without a good grasp on time management.

Does That Make Sense?

Does That Make Sense?

Sep 26, 2018

I am a classic over-thinker. Just now, as I write this, I'm looking back at nearly every word I've typed and will likely re-read the post a good eight or ten times before I click "publish." Maybe it's because of my communication background, but I tend to overanalyze each word I write. Never is this more obvious and daunting as in an email. Women tend to be more self-deprecating in these messages, concerned we'll sound arrogant, bossy, or impolite.

Inbox Goals

Inbox Goals

Sep 19, 2018

Do you ever look up at the end of day only to feel like you’ve spent every waking hour managing your inbox? You get through one email only to realize two or three more now need your attention. It’s a feeling that can leave you defeated and frustrated.

Switch Off Autopilot

Switch Off Autopilot

Sep 12, 2018

Autopilot is a great tool for our vehicles, but sometimes the concept can creep into our personal or professional lives. We check off the same to-do list day after day, which turns into week after week and month after month. It’s September, and we had goals we set in January that have become lost in the shuffle. It’s an easy thing to do as we become familiar with our day-to-day routine. We become comfortable, complacent, and mindlessly efficient.
