Keeping Your Eye on the Ball

HELLO | TWELVE, NOVEMBER 2019


Happy Friday!  Wow, it has been such a busy fall, right?!  Like head-spinning busy- for me both personally and professionally.  As we've shared, Delegate has won some pretty great awards this fall- we grabbed the #52 spot on the fastest growing companies in Philly (woot!  The Philly 100!!), and I won Small Business Person of the Year with the Philly Chamber (a high honor! for me personally!). 

 

This combined with the challenges of a growing company along with a whole bunch of big shifts in my personal life equals a lot to manage!   With all of this swirling around me, it's hard to stay focused week over week towards the game-changing work. 

 

Below are a few of the strategies I use to keep my eye on the ball:

A Win for Flex and Remote Work!

HELLO | TWELVE, SEPTEMBER 2019


TGIF and Happy Friday!  Hope all our friends in the Southeast are faring well through Dorian.  Many of our team are in Florida, Charleston, Wilmington and other parts of eastern North Carolina, so sending extra love and support to them this week!

 

We are excited to share that we are one of the 100 fastest growing, privately held companies in Philadelphia (the Philly 100®)!  We are super proud of this win, and while it's a big deal to us, even more importantly this is an incredible win for the flex & remote work movement

Make a Commitment to "Good Enough"

HELLO | TWELVE, AUGUST 2019


TGIF, Happy Friday and hello from the coast of North Carolina, where a group from Team Delegate has assembled for our annual retreat. Given that we are a 100% remote, distributed team, this year's retreat is really exciting for us because we have the opportunity to spend face time with the members of our NC contingent of Delegate.

This month I've been thinking a lot about commitment.  It could be because my fiancee and I just added another dog (third!!) to our family that commitment is heavy on my mind!  Or, perhaps it's my own personal evolution of hanging in there even when things are not "perfect" because I made a commitment to do so.  Either way, honoring our commitments is not always the easy choice, but it is a mindset shift that brings with it personal growth, stability and consistency.

How to Move From Make it Up to Make it Real

HELLO | TWELVE, jULY 2019


TGIF, Happy Friday and happy Independence Day!

As Visionaries, our greatest contribution is our ability to see our companies as globally as possible. We are uniquely able to understand and prioritize the most pressing needs, and then design creative solutions to to move forward.

I don't know how this process typically works for you, but for me it's typically super-organic and instinctual. Once we identify the problem, I give myself the space to creatively think about how we might solve it. Or sometimes, I'm not even thinking about it at all, and the answer suddenly just comes to me. What a feeling, right? :)

The challenge then lies in how to take this idea and model it, build it, test it and roll it out. This is where our team can become a true complement to our abilities. I follow a simple process to make my ideas real:

Google Calendar SMS Notifications Cancelled

KNOW | TWELVE, DECEMBER 2018 

Google Calendar SMS Notifications cancelled

SMS notifications for Google Calendar events will be removed January 7, 2019. The notifications will cease to work on that date and instead in-app notifications will be the main method of reminding users of upcoming events. Google has confirmed that users that have the SMS notifications set up will be automatically notified in one of two ways. If a user has Calendar open or the Google Calendar app on a mobile device, they will receive in-app notifications. If a user has SMS notifications set up for new events, changed events, cancelled events or response, they will receive an email. If you have disabled calendar notifications, then head to Settings > Apps & notifications > Find the Calendar app > Turn notifications on. Google also stated that the Calendar API will be updated to reflect this upcoming change. - 9to5Google

Embrace the Flow

HELLO | TWELVE, OCTOBER 2018

Welcome to October and the start of Q4! Fall is my always favorite time of year for many reasons, but maybe most of all for the sense of beautiful closure that it inherently brings. It's like nature's encouraging reminder to move on from summer and flow into a blaze of glory! My hope is that you are blazing new paths and creating amazing things going into this last quarter of the year.

How to Make the Hard Things Easier

HELLO | TWELVE, AUGUST 2018

Welcome to August and another great week of summer! I'm back from a life-changing trip to Paris to celebrate my 40th, and my son has been spending the week at Boy Scout Camp, so it's been a great block of time for me to refresh and refocus my energies on what matters most to me. It's been so needed!

As a leader, every day it seems I am faced with hard things - hard choices, hard conversations, hard situations.. it's exhausting on so many levels. But I've learned some tricks along the way that have helped me stay energized, focused and balanced in dealing with the hard things. I hope that they are helpful to you, and would love to hear your strategies to stay prepared for the hard parts in your life and business.

Utilize Asana and the Bottleneck Diagnostic to Increase Productivity

LOVE | TWELVE, AUGUST 2018

 

Asana Timeline Dependencies:Asana has added a helpful new feature – timeline dependencies. When you’re planning a new marketing campaign, product launch, or other cross-functional project, the sequence of work is just as important as the work itself.

With Timeline in Asana, you can map out your project plan to see how all the work fits together. And with recent improvements to Timeline, you can now draw dependencies between tasks. As you spot timing conflicts, you can adjust dates right on Timeline so you feel confident in your project schedule. Then as work gets underway, teammates will know when dependent work is completed so they can start their tasks.

HELLO | TWELVE, JUNE 2018

Welcome to June and the start of summer!  I turned 40 yesterday, and in our last issue of 12Lite, I shared some of my favorite life insights from the last 40 years.  At the top of my list is that it takes years to become an overnight success.  Anyone successful would tell you this, and they would also tell you that it doesn't happen by accident.  It's about intention and just figuring out the next best step that you can take to get there.
