Maintaining the stamina of your Staff

How does your company maintain the professional stamina of your staff? By Mike Morrison, Health and Wellbeing Keynote Speaker  Do you ever consider the difference between your brain and your mind?

By Jaquie Scammell When I was fourteen years old, I was hungry to get out in the world and work. A locally run delicatessen was willing to employ me for a couple of shifts a week after school hours. I will never forget my first week. I served customers with a smile and was friendly; however, there was one skill that I was not prepared for – receiving cash and giving change. It involved calculating the difference manually, with no calculator, no mobile phone and no digital POS (can you imagine?). Fast-forward...More
