Simple practical steps on building your thought partner network by Livvy

Thought partner network Are you wondering how you can build your career in other ways rather than further study. Want more support than what you get from your current team? Do you work in a one-person bandwagon role? Consider building a thought partner network.

8 ways to help your productivity at work by Livvy

ProductivityWith the multitudes of distractions we face, notifications buzzing on your phone, pinging emails and high-pitched laughter from the latest office prank flowing across the open planned office, it's sometimes hard to imagine how one does focus, be productive and get any work done.

When I say 'be productive', I mean it in terms of how efficient you are at getting work done. For example, writing this blog post while attempting to defrost my fingers by clutching my coffee is a challenge in itself, let alone colleagues scootering around my desk, and 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams blasting (for the third time), to my bosses phone quacking (yes quacking) - it's all rather distracting and causes me to lose my train of thought. The result is low productivity. Read more for 8 ways to increase your productivity at work.
