The Beetle’s body, whether it be a ’49 split or a ’73 Jeans Bug, or an ‘03 Mexican, was originally conceived in the mid 1930’s.

Mix- Be situationally aware and pay attention to the people in the room. - Introduce guests or help strike up a conversation. - Be the one who takes the initiative and makes and effort to “work the room.”- Make eye contact and acknowledge others with a smile and friendly gestures.- Greet people as they arrive, even if it is not your expected role.- Spot the people who may be first timers or guests and help them feel more welcomed and embraced.

Mingle- Be the connector–introduce people to each other who may not otherwise connect.- Be a conversation fire starter; point out what people have in common as you are introducing them.- Seek out the folks who may appear to be shy, or awkward, or wallflowers.

What I didn’t realize is that everyone else was as scared as I was." Knowing others may feel the same way as you can make social situations feel less awkward. When approaching new people, find ways to put those at ease who might be reluctant to approach us otherwise. Where Can You Begin to Mix, Mingle & Glow? . Susan C. Young

BE HERE NOWDo you feel fully present and engaged in the way you live your life? Do you immerse yourself in the moment or do you strive and struggle as you negotiate the distractions of our modern world?

Employee Engagement“Employee Engagement” has become a very hot topic in recent years. The escalating statistics for disengagement are alarming. In 2015, the Gallup Polls’ “The State of the American Workforce” survey found that only 32.5 percent of the U.S. Workforce is engaged and committed where they work, and 54 percent say they would consider leaving their companies if they could receive a 20 percent raise elsewhere. Disengagement not only lowers performance, morale, and productivity, but it’s costing employers billions of dollars a year. It's a growing problem, which has many companies baffled. Susan C. Young
Why is this disengagement epidemic becoming the new norm? A few reasons I have witnessed in speaking with companies across the country include .- Information overload- Distractions- Stress/overwhelmed- Apathy/detachment- Short attention span- Fear, worry, anxiety- Rapidly changing technology- Entitlement- Poor leadership- Preoccupation- Social media- Interruptions- Multitasking- Budget cuts- Exhaustion- Boredom- Conflict- Social insecurity- Lack of longevity These challenges not only create separation and work dysfunction, but we are seeing it happen in relationships and personal interactions.

These qualities make a great impression on your boss, your teams, and your customers. You will be more respected, noticed, and appreciated in the process. As your own "CEO of Self, " projecting this positive level of engagement furthers your own personal reputation and interests for healthy communication, networking, and positive first impressions. An added bonus is that YOU will receive great benefits from putting forth this type of effort. Whether it be self-esteem, new training, cooperation, experience, or a raise or bonus, the rewards are extensive and many. Susan C. Young
