6 Tricks to Survive a Bad Day at Work
By Brie Ragland
We all have rough days on the job from time to time. Let's imagine there's a scale from 0-10 — zero being the calmest, most productive employee you can be, and 10 being a haphazard mess full of anger and stress who is barely able to complete a task — and you feel yourself running at a strong 7.5 today. To say you've had a bad day would be an understatement. However, it is time to put a plan into place to stop this destruction train in its path or, needless to say, bad things are going to happen.

The Undeniable Benefits of Having Happy Customers
By Jessica Taylor
"The customer is always right." These five important words form a motto within any organization. No matter what field you work in, engaging with others is a key aspect. Having happy customers begins with customer service, but great customer service begins with you. Whether you're communicating face-to-face, on the phone or via the Internet, knowing the proper tools is crucial. A single failure in response — whether it's in tone, lack of information, etc. — can cause a negative review.

You Cannot Lead Until You Have Their Trust
By Dov Baron
A creeping crisis is facing companies today. Over the next 20 years, this crisis will affect the bottom line harder than the recession of 2008. What is the crisis? The loss of valuable, trained employees. The average company spends 1.5 to 2 times the annual salary of an employee in training and development. Meanwhile, the average millennial employee is looking at a tenure of only 1.2 to 2.4 years. That means you will see your employee walk away before your investment ever pays off.
