If a company posts a list of values on its website, it must be a conscious business, right?

What does it mean to have influence?
What does the future of work look like?While we don’t exactly have a crystal ball, many of the trends are pretty clear. Our professional lives have gone through massive shifts and set us on a whole new course for how we work. This is a welcome and long-awaited change.This is because traditional ways of working are no longer necessary and, in many ways, no longer viable. The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted gaps in healthcare and work-life balance while also proving that remote work and flexibility are entirely doable.We foresee that the trends many organizations have adopted in recent years will continue to grow and solidify, leading to a new way of work that is more conducive to well-being.Plus, we’ve seen a blossoming movement of conscious leadership. In fact, we’re at the forefront of that movement right here at DotConnect. Our founder Dom Farnan has radically altered the way she shows up at work, and it is a beautiful thing to see. Additionally, there are many other conscious leaders stepping up to this new way of being, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.Let’s take a look at the trends we expect to see in the years ahead:
We hear a lot of sayings about how to lead a good and successful life.“You reap what you sow,” “grow where you’re planted,” and “the early bird gets the worm,” are all pretty popular idioms that were coined to help us navigate through life and become the best versions of ourselves.But lately, one of the most common sentiments about success is that you must be willing to “Do the work.” At face value, it seems to make sense when it comes to achieving goals — you have to get your hands dirty and dedicate yourself to completing the job to be successful.In the professional setting, that could mean you show up to your meetings, ensure you’re on time, and build your schedule for maximum productivity. After all, when you dedicate yourself to these things, you’ll get work done. But what about the intangible things in business?How do you go beyond the systems that make a business fiscally successful and get into the nitty gritty of fulfilling your company’s mission, vision, and values?Now, more than ever, it’s the intangibles that people are looking for in a job. They want to feel supported, cared for, and thought of as more than cogs in a machine.So how do you make that happen as a business owner? Do you find ways to invest in your employees’ retirement funds, increase their benefits packages, and open the option of unlimited PTO? Or do you do something more?At DotConnect, we believe that highly successful corporations do much more than offer a good salary with excellent benefits packages. Instead, they focus on conscious leadership that grows an inclusive corporate culture.How do they do that? We’re glad you asked.
Have you ever been in this situation?You wake up on Monday, ready to take on the world. Your work week is laid out in front of you, you (think that you) have a great schedule laid out so that you can balance your work life and home life, and you are sure that everything is going to go according to plan.And for most of Monday, it does.Then, the unthinkable happens. One of your clients has an urgent request that needs finishing before the week is over… schedule ruined. That simple shift in routine does more than make you feel overwhelmed at work — it affects your mood and increases your stress levels, and before you know it, your healthy work-life balance has been thrown out the window, and you’ve brought work problems home with you.We know this feeling all too well at DotConnect, and even though you may think the sky is falling when your workload changes or you need to alter your plans, it’s not the end of the world!Added stress happens from time to time, but with the proper routine, you can overcome any obstacle that stands in your way.Today, we’ll dive into three essentials to our days at Dot that can help you achieve the balance you want in life. And no, we’re not talking about the Pomodoro Technique, time blocking, and scheduling hacks — even though we love those things too.Instead, we’re about to look at the routine outside of work and the essentials for achieving an inner calmness that gives you the clarity to handle life’s unexpected changes with poise.
