  • Caregiving and depression

    UK Elder Care shares that caring for an aging loved one may create an overabundance of emotions. The uncertain future, career and financial worries, difficult life decisions and the potential for an unwanted lifestyle change can create fear, hopelessness, anger, resentment, and helplessness. All of this will affect your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

  • The changing work environment

    Leaders have to understand the five generations in the workforce have somewhat different values, thought and beliefs about how the workplace should be and how individuals should act. The problem with that is most leaders do not believe it or are not worried about it. The old adage - if they want to work here, they will do it the way we have always done it doesn’t really apply any longer, because these younger generations do not see it that way. They can be loyal if treated the way they want to be. However, they will leave without a second thought.
