Our thoughts on running a company, tech insight, news, and nerd life.


Hi Friends,
What does your workplace owe you in terms of support? 
If you work somewhere with a caring culture and colleagues, you might start to lean on them as your emotional support network. We’ve certainly all needed more of that in the last 18 months. 
But take care. At our last all-hands meeting, we talked about the support our company owes its employees. 
The fundamental support that Radial has committed to offer employees is that of a regular paycheck. It’s not the support of friendly co-workers, although that is a value we hire for. Nor is it the support of emotional counseling, although our managers listen carefully and often. 
How does Radial make good on its commitment to provide a paycheck? By delivering quality features and code on client projects.
How do we make sure we can do this? By asking the people who work here to take time to get the other types of support they need outside of work, when they need it. 
We do our best work when employees can show up as their best selves. It’s worth thinking about if your workplace structure encourages employees to do this.
Asking people to care for themselves outside of work results in better client relationships and a better work product. Building that into our employee expectations ultimately allows space and time for the people working here to become better humans. 
Goodness knows we need more of those around.
Cheers,
Stephanie

Being Better
Journaling prompts from our friendly neighborhood nerd Ariana F., at Rosabella Consulting.
Have you ever had to write something and don’t know what to say or where to start? Perhaps you’ve received an email you’re struggling to compose a response to. Or are working on a new article to post on social media. Or need to draft a pitch.
It’s helpful to remember getting started doesn’t mean getting it perfect from the get go. It’s a matter of putting ideas onto the page. You might even have a conversation with yourself in writing to prime your thoughts - you can always edit it later (that’s what I do).
Here are some reflection questions I will often write then answer in my own private Q&A when I’m struggling to find my voice:
  • What’s on my mind right now?
  • What am I trying to say?
  • What’s the point I want to make?
  • How do I want the people reading this to feel?
Have you reflected on 2021 yet? Are you ready to start 2022 strong? Checkout our next Leadership Circle (formerly Journal Jams) with Ariana on Wednesday December 15th 9am MST. Enjoy camaraderie with like minded change-makers while leveling-up!
