When it comes to branding, you’ll have to determine what your goals are -- how will you be perceived by others, how will you look, and overall, when will you deem yourself a “success?”

But first, to account for progress, you’ll have to assess your current state.

How do people currently perceive you? How large is the gap between you and the person or company you want others to perceive you to be?

This may seem like a bit of a no-brainer, but happy employees make for good business, and science proves it!



The United Kingdom’s Warwick University confirmed through research that under scientifically-controlled conditions, happy employees produce a 12% rise in productivity.



At the University of Tennessee, researchers explored employee friendliness and found that companies that scored highly in this category also scored above average for the sales-assets ratio and the numbers of patents filed.

Take a moment to think about a job you’ve had where you felt appreciated and cared for, versus a job where maybe you didn’t feel as respected as a worker. Did you perform differently for one job versus the other? Share your thoughts with the group.

Today’s challenge is to find and share at least one way that you could help keep your employees happy and engaged.

I’ll go first:

Encourage mindfulness - every job has its stressful moments, and everyday stress creeps into job performance too. By helping employees tap into mindfulness they’ll be able to feel happier overall, which is good for them AND your business.

There’s nothing wrong with joining in on a conversation, especially at a networking event. Just standby for a moment to make sure you’re not entering into a serious discussion before you jump in.

My favorite way to ease into a circle of people is by complimenting the main speaker on something you authentically appreciate about them. What’s your go-to conversation-entering move?
