Resilience isn’t necessarily an inherent trait. For most of us, it’s learned. As we face challenges and problems, we often assume the worst. But if we can stop and take the time to assess the importance of an issue—is it small, medium or big?—and respond from a pragmatic place, as opposed to emotional, we can create better outcomes for our teams and our clients. Each time we practice this, we take our learnings into the next challe...

Above all the work you produce or professional successes you have, your invisible reputation means the most. This topic hits home for Lora Olivieri, Rebel Interactive Group's VP of Client Services.

It's defined in how you make people feel behind the scenes, when no one else is watching. 

It's the Slack messages you send when you think no one will know.
