Welcome to the
Unlimited Newsletter...

May is one of my favourite months. Not only is it the month I was born as well as my eldest child and my own Mother, but lots of other exciting things are happening right now. House sales generally start to go up this month. Summer cars often make their way onto the roads at this time of year, and ladies, it is time to dig out those cute strappy sandals!

May is also a great time to try new things. What are you putting off for tomorrow that you could do today? Do you want to take on a new project? Spend more time at a hobby? Make new friends by joining a sports team? Or, work with a coach to help you gain support and achieve new heights in your career or life?

Something new I'd like to try this month is adding a 'In the News' section to my newsletter. I want to keep stories fresh for my readers so I'm experimenting with different ways to share information with you.

Enjoy the ride!

Is your business better or worse off for your all-encompassing connectivity? The Harvard Business Review contends that productivity is moving in the wrong direction. Read more...

3 Ways HR Analytics Can Boost the Bottom Line
Human resources touches every department across a company, and people are often a company's most valuable - and expensive- asset. Why, then, do so many companies make critical HR decisions - like realigning workers to fill shortages in-house versus hiring new workers with the necessary skill sets -without grounding those decisions in HR analytics?

Is Image Becoming More Important Than Reality?
We use to think that image is only important for movie stars and politicians. What does image have to do with the rest of us?

Everything- and it applies to anyone who uses social media from Facebook to blog. How you present yourself may impact your ability to get a job or a visitor's impression of our community. What you say today, may come back to influence what people think long after you said it. Read more...
