Today, I am going to share a few lessons learned and templates for the candidate experience — from hiring/interview to onboarding new team members to career growth.
As a true product marketer, join me on our candidate journey similar to the buyer journey :)

How do we cultivate and foster Mindfulness at work, one day at a time?
Imagine a world where we wake up every morning and say, “Hey, Good Morning! I want to be mindful at work today” and see where it goes and make a conscious choice every moment of the day.
When I joined this leadership role in Oct 2020, I didn’t really know how to bring mindfulness and meditation into my day-to-day until I came across Wise@Work.
I’ve been learning about mindfulness for over the past year. …
In my self-reflection ride with Christine, she shared the most beautiful narrative and I am sharing it with you. Because there is power in the numbers: (no, not the metrics) in us as a collective amplifying self-care. #sharingiscaring
Think about the firefly at the edge of our peripheral vision. Pay attention and capture it, pin it on paper and really see what it is!
What are your fireflies? Every time you see one, pin it on paper, write it down. And discover what you are truly capable of.
What habits do you want to drop and what habits do you…
It’s been a year navigating the emotional journey and learning that there are more emotions than just crying. And how to accept the now, be fully present, and not worry about the past or the future (things I don’t control).
And to start, let me introduce you to my council, not just the one voice, but the council in my head.
At first, I thought there was only one inner voice. The one that challenged me every day in every decision. But now I see that as a council, not one but many voices in its own way.
It’s painful to see the divide amongst the countries in the world.
Last year was supposed to be our reset, our chance to show true compassion and show that we care. But we still have a divide between us around the world.
There isn’t anyone in this world…
The first time I heard the word equanimity was in a meditation session. It piqued my interest. I don’t think I’ve ever heard this word or referenced it before.
Here is a simple definition,
mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation.
Example: “she accepted both the good and the bad with equanimity”
When we walk into a meeting or for now join a video conferencing meeting with stakeholders.
Being new in the team, I don’t know much about the past and come with the least bias.
Some meetings can be fun, joyful and pleasant…
It’s a beautiful day. Isn’t it amazing what the mind can do? You won’t believe it but I woke up exactly at 5:21 am without the alarm.
You are wondering 5:21? Well, that’s what I have as set for my alarm on weekdays (5.21 is my birthday).
Now that was a beautiful gesture of the mind and I decided to wake up and start my beautiful day with a smile.
These routines and habits that we’ve built in our mind can be so powerful that we just don’t see it sometimes. That is the beauty of the mind. If you…
In the book Hustle & Float, Rahaf Harfoush breaks down why we work the way we do today and challenges us to think beyond metrics that represent productivity-driven goals versus creativity-led ones.
When was the last time you were in a meeting and had a productive and creative discussion that resulted in teams becoming energized and excited about the path ahead?
You’ve probably had a handful of good ones, I hope. This makes one wonder if we are focusing on the right priorities in our day-to-day engagements at work.
Everyone has a few meetings in our calendars that we attend…
The power of one is mesmerizing. We don’t realize it, but it can change how we see things. It can help us focus and help us get to the next step and embrace a pattern without an avalanche of expectations or creating a false self.
Let’s explore the power of one across the facets of life, especially our professional lives.
It’s amazing how focus can help. Just think about one day at a time versus the next week or month. We don’t know what’s going to happen. But we can always be comfortable with today.
If today didn’t go well…
We have all been faced with a simple statement: “Tell me a little bit about yourself.”
And I ask: “What exactly do you want to know about me? How much is too much information to share?”
I’m going to share a few examples of my picture-perfect introduction that started as an idea I heard from a sales leader a few years ago. I thought it was a brilliant idea to get to know more about your teammates and for them to get to know you. …
