How Employers Can Support Workplace Mental Health

27 January 2020

Contributed by Bethany Seton.Our mental health clearly affects all aspects of our daily life—including the way we do business and conduct ourselves in the workplace. However, due to the nature of conditions such as anxiety, addiction, depression and the like, problems can go undetected for lengthy periods of time, even as they damage relationships with family and coworkers.Unfortunately, mental health is not a topic people typically discuss openly. Some employees may worry that revealing their depression or anxiety makes them appear unfit for the job. Others may not even be aware that they are experiencing mental health problems.To help improve the mental health in your workplace—and thus improve productivity—follow these steps.  21061

The Value of Letting Go to Gain Perspective

24 January 2020

Adrienne Palmer, an Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) member in Dallas, Texas, embodies the qualities that make EO entrepreneurs truly special. After 20 years managing the digital agency she founded, Adrienne now pursues opportunities to share her knowledge with other entrepreneurs, to grow alongside her peers, and to meaningfully explore the world. Adrienne recently participated in an incredible adventure in Zimbabwe as part of a MyEO trip. MyEO, one of EO’s most loved benefits, is a platform that makes it easy to connect with other members based on shared passions and interests. We asked Adrienne to tell us more about the MyEO Tasimba leadership experience. Here’s what she shared: When I stare at the wooden carved elephant I brought home from Zimbabwe, I can hear her say, in her low rumbling voice, “Don’t forget who you are.” She reminds me daily to stay connected to all I learned about myself and the world during our MyEO trip into the Tasimba leadership experience.It was a week fully immersed, a week disconnected, and a week exposed to all that Zimbabwe and the wilderness have to teach us. Of course, being EO members, we already share a bond of aligned values, similar life challenges and experiences, and a common language, all of which provided fertile ground for connection. Taking that connection into such a transformational environment created a bond among our clan that will be a part of us forever.More than a safari, Tasimba provides a unique immersion into the African wilderness. (This video from Tasimba captures the spirit of the program.) 21035

B2B Game Changers: How to Discover a Distinct Advantage and Become a Market Leader

21 January 2020

Tim Hamilton, an EO member in Austin, is founder and CEO of Praxent, a custom software and web app development firm that has been named for three consecutive years to the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the US, most recently as #2,118 on the 2019 list. In part 1 of this article, Tim discussed the false assumptions driving B2B innovations that fail. In this post, Tim offers B2B companies a strategy for creating digital products around customer experience gaps in their industries:B2B companies today have a strong desire to create better digital solutions for their buyers, recognizing innovative customer experience (CX) as a key ingredient to success in current markets. While the desire and intention to create disruptive digital customer experiences grows, however, the majority of B2B companies struggle to deliver.According to Accenture, 80 percent of B2B companies try to innovate around CX, but fail to generate a satisfactory return on investment. In all, billions of dollars are wasted on research and development of innovative ideas that never win new business.What does it take to design innovative digital customer experiences that predictably win? The key is uncovering the false assumptions driving the failure of B2B innovation experiments. Find the truth behind what motivates customers to make purchases in a given industry, then innovate around those foundational realities. 21025
