The executive speaker series session with Donnie Smith, president and CEO of Tyson Foods, is always a highlight of the WorkMatters Institute. This one particular week raised the bar. There was the cool factor of meeting at the Tyson Discovery Center and trying new products for our dinner. There was the talk itself: full of…

The Power of Money

Money is a powerful tool. If we feel like we don’t have enough of it, we become stressed and afraid. But when payday comes, a calm rushes over us. A higher than expected cell phone bill arrives in our email, and anger and anxiety swells inside of us again. If we aren’t careful, money can…

How to Show Outrageous Gratitude & Love at Work

Let’s be honest, Thanksgiving with family can sometimes be hard. And in a lot of ways, the workplace can be very similar to a Thanksgiving experience – a place filled with imperfect people who have differing opinions and beliefs all united by one common mission.

I love end-of-year reviews and fresh starts to a new year! Do you? I made so many mistakes in 2016. That’s why one of my favorite phrases in the Bible is ”…his mercies are fresh each morning.” We all need fresh starts, and once a year we get a natural opportunity for that – to…

Where is Your Thrill of Hope Coming From?

The days between Christmas and New Year’s have always seemed to be an exhausting time for me. After a month of what feels like non-stop running from Christmas parties, gift shopping, and above all, a very busy work season, I’m exhausted. On top of that, the Christmas season is officially over, and that sense of…

To Every Season…

The holiday season is not easy to escape. We barely finish the Thanksgiving turkey before it’s time to shop for Christmas on black Friday.
