 This month’s newsletter shines a bright light on trust, and why it is essential to effective communications. How can our leaders work to improve trust and get things done? We have a few things to say about it. Oh, and it’s totally fine to use emojis at work now in case you were wondering, so let the thumbs ups and cry-face emojis fly. Lastly, the COVID variant is surging, and everyone is nervous. Communicating well in this dynamic environment will be tricky. Do you know what to say to your customers and employees, or how to deliver the message? Fortunately, we do. If you need professional help, give us a call. Consultations are always free.

Is it OK to use emojis in business communications? The answer: 👍. 
Whose name is in that red circle? 😉
We know she can write, but we’re still bursting our buttons over our fearless leader Sarah being featured as a guest author in this quarter’s STRIVE magazine. The subject? Investing in relationships.
