COMMUNITY SERVICE
Community Service
When we as professionals understand our role in business, we also need to understand our role in the wider community – this could be local, regional and even international. We are judged by our professional accomplishments as well as by our deeds beyond the workplace. Playing an active role in our communities promotes a sense of community, helps others and studies show it makes us happier people.

Pay it Back – Pay it Forward
No matter our position within an organization, we are able to give back to it. We can mentor and support others. The intention of doing community service within an organization, rather than externally is one that isn’t often considered. Yet the benefits are tremendous to ourselves, our team and the organization.

The struggle in today’s business environment is trying to learn new things, develop innovations, find ideas that disrupt or cannibalize what already exists. Explore why innovation and entrepreneurship is needed at every level of the economy and in every company competing in the marketplace.  
MotivationMotivation is a strange concept. We’re motivated by many things. We’re motivated when we’re excited, when we’re scared, and when we’re determined.
