Does asking for help come across as a negative at work?

Does asking for help come across as a negative at work?

Asking your manager or others for help at work may seem like a decision that could make you look less competent, but like most things in life, it comes down to balance. While you don’t want to be constantly asking for help, you also don’t want to struggle to meet deadlines or waste valuable time trying to figure something more advanced/complex out that your manager already has the answer to. In today’s blog we look at the right approach to asking for help at work - not only when you should but also how to go about it. We also look at the importance of setting proper expectations right off the bat so you and your boss are on the same page about what your job entails and what skills you are bringing and what you will need development with.

Bridging the Gap Between Younger and Older Employees

Bridging the Gap Between Younger and Older Employees

So many articles these days are centered around catering to Millennials and Gen-Z employees. In fact, we just wrote an article about it! One thing that doesn’t get much coverage however is how younger employees could better interact and work with older generations. Communication goes both ways so not only is it important for Boomers and Gen Xers to understand how to communicate with younger generations, but those younger generations need to do their part and learn how to properly communicate with older generations as well. In this week’s blog I delve into this topic and offer some advice to Millennials and Gen-Zers on how they can be more effective in bridging the gap between communication, culture, work styles, and values.

Understanding and Supporting Gen Z in the Workplace

Understanding and Supporting Gen Z in the Workplace

Gen Z is the latest generation to enter the workplace. While Millennials still remain the majority of today’s workforce, Gen Z is catching up. Those born between the mid-1990s to mid-2000s qualify as Gen Z and account for 61 million people in the United States. The Gen Z population are digital natives and they can’t imagine a time when the internet didn’t exist. Technology has always been an integral part of their daily lives and, like Millennials, social media is a big part of it. Compared to the previous generation of Millennials, who are often criticized for job hopping, Gen Z workers, who grew up during the 2008 recession, seem to be gravitating toward jobs that are more stable and they appear to prioritize financial security more. With this new workforce generation it’s important to offer guidance and encouragement to help them develop and thrive professionally.

Importance of Written Communication Skills

Importance of Written Communication Skills

In today’s workplace, email is the most widely used form of communication with most people reading and writing an average of 123 emails per day according to Forbes. It’s clear that non-verbal communication such as emails, online tools like Slack, and texts are only going to become even more prevalent as future technology driven generations move in to the workforce. The outcome of this is that our written communication skills are becoming increasingly impactful and how well or how poorly you communicate in this manner can have a profound impact on your career. So it’s imperative to consider factors such as relevance, length of communication, tone, language, and response time when communicating non-verbally.
