“Let’s Make Work Better” (10/14/2016)

Without a doubt, NDSU Extension has great accomplishments every day. But at times, it’s tempting for the hiccups in a day to get our attention. This is where a great TEDxUMN Talk titled, “Let’s Make Work Better,” can help all of us reset our outlook. In the Talk, Dr. Theresa Glomb, accomplished professor with the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota, lays out some research-based tips that make me re-think my day. Check out the description and short video at the link below for practical advice to “gripe less and celebrate more, stop multitasking, and help others.”

Deb Gebeke was moved by Dr. Glomb’s research as well, so much so that she prepared a neat little half-sheet summary that’s been shared at staff gatherings around the state. And at Fall Conference, she’ll be handing out magnets printed with a reminder to work hard, have fun, choose kind and be present. (Thank you, Deb.) If you don’t have a chance to get one or both and want them to help you “reset,” contact after conference.
