Ho’oponopono

A couple of weeks ago, I had to make a return to a local store. At the counter, there were signs posted that read: The whole world is short-staffed. Be kind to those who showed up today. I commented to the customer service associate how much I liked the message, and...

Against the Wind

Against the Wind

Those of you who know me know that I am a big fan of inspirational quotes. I am passionate, and emotional, but sometimes what I “feel” does not always translate into the “right words”. I’ve found that, at times, inspirational quotes help by visualizing / internalizing...

Dear Team Cadre

Dear Team Cadre

Well, the day is almost here! Tuesday 7/6 we return to the offices! :o) Over the last 15 months, not a day has gone by that I have not admired our strength, our resilience and our adaptability towards the circumstances we have faced as a team and as individuals. One...

525,600 Minutes

Today marks the one year anniversary of Team Cadre working remotely, and as I reflect on the last year, I can’t get the song "Seasons of Love", from one of my favorite musicals, Rent, out of my head. 525,600 minutes. 525,600 moments so dear. 525,600 minutes. How do...

The Ongoing Process of Process

The Ongoing Process of Process

I can still remember the nerves I felt on my first day starting with Cadre.  As nervous as I felt that first day, I don’t think it compared to the nerves I felt on the first day that I no longer had my trainer sitting with me.  While I was glad that I was trusted to...

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule

Who among us remembers our parents saying this to us when we were growing up: Do unto others as you would have others do unto you If it was not the exact saying, you probably heard a variation and it was probably said in a “family meeting” after you and your siblings...
