Accessorize your Favorite Shirt

Instead of dressing down to blend in at the male-dominated office, how about owning this “man’s world” by claiming one of their favourite – and only, may I add – accessories: The cufflinks. And while you’re at it, how about you “Put a Bow on it” as well?

Whether you want to start a revolution through fashion or look nice, sparkling cufflinks are definitely a stylish way to dress up a plain shirt.

Thrive and Progress on your Goals

If you repeated today every day for the next year, realistically, where would you end up? In order to achieve your dreams, what does a “normal” day look like? What activities must happen daily for you to live exactly how you want to be living?

These are some of the important questions raised in the article “Tell Me What You Did Today, And I’ll Tell You Who You Are” on Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global platform.

The article continues to argue that you should build your day around the following four things, in order for your brain to thrive and make enormous daily progress toward your most important goals:

  1. Nutrition: Eating right,
  2. Oxygen: Getting enough oxygen to the brain,
  3. Information: Obtaining quality information, ideally above your cognitive level,
  4. Love: Nurturing loving and deep relationships.

If you are curious to learn more as well as concrete examples on how to achieve the four essentials, read the full article on Thrive Global.

Women Executive Search

Women Executive Search webpage

Wes is going against the grain in the executive recruitment industry by looking at all of the skills available on the market; always identifying and including the best female leaders in every recruitment process.

Swedish Anna Stenberg founded the executive search firm Women Executive Search (WES) in 2011, which specializes in finding and promoting female leaders.

Anna strongly believes that female candidates have all the right competences and desire to make it as a leader. However, finding female talent often requires some detective work, as many women simply do not apply for the top positions. WES has thus adopted an innovative recruitment process, looking beyond the traditional networks to identify potential candidates.

I truly admire Anna’s mission to promote female talent to build a more gender neutral future, and hope to see more of such initiatives in the future. Anna Stenberg investpodden podcast
