Sometimes it’s best to press the pause button.
As 2016 nears to an end, our Connecting Perspectives team announces a break from blogging. However, just because we will be stepping back from publishing for a little while here does not mean we are ceasing our business activities. In fact, the opposite is occurring.
Why We Are Taking a Break Now
We are pleased to be so busy with our current clients. For our team, it makes more sense to use our time to develop new concepts and products to further help our existing client base. Once we develop these innovative solutions, we look forward to introducing them here.
Taking Stock of Accomplishments
Our first blog post dates back to November 24, 2009. Since then, we have published continuously. Our writing has consistently focused on providing strategies and tips for businesses, with a focus on improving collaboration, return on investment, and sustainable change.
Earlier this year, for example, we offered insights into how to create a genuinely happy office, which is necessary for effective collaboration and organisational development. We cautioned that what might appear to be a content office to a manager may be a false front.
In addition to the insights that readers have told us that we have provided them through the blog posts, we have also asked questions to encourage executives to explore new ways of thinking about their businesses.
In July of 2015, we did exactly that in a post titled How to Collaborate Across Cultures? We asked leaders of multi-cultural organisations questions that to help them better understand how their teams members communicate with each other. One such question was, “What do you do to understand how they perceive time, hierarchy or trust?”
Exploring the Present & Hopeful for the Future
We plan to come back to the blog soon to continue to share ideas pertaining to effective collaboration within organisations, which is a necessary component of growing a business and maximising innovative prospects. We look forward to furthering conversations in these areas when we return.
In the meantime, let’s press the power button on life. Are you ready to make the most of your business plans at the present time too?
