Work Stress Solutions

I recently wrote this blog post, “Professional Development – Learning on the Job” which is most about keeping updated on your industry and job specific skills (technical training, computer skills, etc.) In my opinion, though, lifelong learning should, in my opinion, include both those ‘hard skills’ (technology and other abilities you must have to do the ‘nuts and bolts’ tasks of your job), but also continual growth of a personal nature – our communication skills, overcoming fears and insecurities we all carry in our lives, learning how to simply be more happy and confident always has positive ripple effects in our work Read More
