Performance improvement feedback doesn’t happen nearly enough – or at all in many cases. Leaders at all levels generally believe it is important and part of their routine. So…if employees generally want more feedback (or any feedback) and at the same time leaders believe it is important and think they do it, what is the disconnect? Let’s dive in and find out.
f you asked a bunch of leaders at any level, if they would like to know when their teams first know when work efforts start to miss their targets – I expect all hands would be raised.
Similarly, if you asked any knowledge worker (at any level) if they would like more feedback from their boss, all hands would be raised.
From your perspective as a leader, you wonder why you don’t hear about problems until they are serious in nature. In a similar vein, strong professionals (at any level) wonder why they don’t get feedback until they have failed.
When you have slow internet speed, it can be a challenge getting remote work done, watching Netflix, or playing Call of Duty. The actual internet speed your computer has is a product of the slowest speed in the chain of connections from your provider, to your house, your modem (or whatever internet connection device you have), to your computer (or laptop/tablet/phone/etc).
Measuring Wi-Fi speeds in your house is important to determine if you have slow internet due to your own home setup.
Smart home lighting done well is a small piece of magic and happiness. Choosing the right kind of lighting and configuration makes all the difference. Getting started with smart lighting can be confusing since there are so many different kinds and applications. This will help you get started.

Prioritization is key to success as a leader and a company. I’m going to bust some prioritization myths, get down to the roots of what prioritization is, why it is a critical aspect of strong leadership, and some methods of prioritization.
There are lots of cryptography terms that are thrown around and often misused. As someone who has been responsible for managing Compensation, HR, and Payroll IT systems one way or another for the past ten years at FedEx, I have a lot of experience protecting data. Part of my responsibilities has been to help my business partners understand the difference and value of each. In this article, I’m going to share some of my favorite concepts and in what context they apply.
By the end of this article, you will have a basic understanding of these terms:
The real value of smart homes is smart device integration. Having your devices talk with each other and interacting is where the magic happens. If you are not home and you left the lights on or a door unlocked, having that taken care of for you is awesome. The more your devices can interact and respond to each other the more value you get out of your setup. I have several practical examples of how this can work for you.
If you have already started your smart home journey and looking for a smart hub or just beginning, this is for you. In Smart Hubs set up smartly Part I, I provided an overview of what a smart home is and Goldfeder’s rules of smart homes.
A smart home is a residence that has smart devices integrated with each other through a hub using automation where the events of devices trigger actions of others.
That’s my definition and this is a guide on how to get started – no matter what your level of technical expertise is.
