Resilience

June 9th, 2020

Resilience June 9th, 2020 This newsletter is a 2-minute read. It has been a few months since our lives have been turned upside down by a global pandemic.

Nature and Nurture

February 5th, 2020

Nature and Nurture February 5th, 2020 Reflecting on the last few years, I can’t decide which experience I loved more, an afternoon in the Henry Cowell Forest or a winter day in the Rockies.

Empathy

July 24th, 2019

Empathy 🌠 July 24th, 2019 Many years ago, this prairie girl left the nest to join an established interior design firm in Toronto. It was a dream come true! Excellent mentors and an inspiring partner, who was my new role model. Until one day, my role model unexpectedly uttered unpleasant words, after an arduous rally […]

Engagement & Workplace Culture

July 5th, 2019

Engagement & Workplace Culture ☀ 👓 July 5th, 2019 We are always interested in learning more about what contributes to great workplace culture. Sometimes phrases just stick with you.
