June 2, 2006 by Katy Whitton

The short answer: Yes! Yes! Yes! Okay, that was a bit longer that I thought, but I can’t stress the importance of how communication affects morale, motivation and productivity. I don’t usually blog about my work any more as mainly I don’t have anything to gripe about (this is 50% to do with the company […] … Read More »

Motivate Yourself – Use the 'Fear Factor'
June 1, 2006 by Katy Whitton

I’ve been wandering around the internet for the past couple of hours looking at various motivational websites – quite a few of which were quite uninspiring (surely if you want to motivate people the design of your site itself should be motivating – or is that just me?!) when I came across a rather interesting […] … Read More »
