The Starting Line to Self-Development

The Starting Line to Self-Development

We are very lucky to live in a world that is ever changing and evolving. It presents us endless opportunities to be whoever we want to be. But with the world moving so quickly around us, the need for self-development is at an all-time high. It is incredible how much our society, technology, and education has advanced in the last 15 years; even in that advancement, many people have fallen behind.

Feedback: The Fertilizer to Professional Growth

Feedback: The Fertilizer to Professional Growth

Asking a coworker or supervisor for honest feedback can sometimes be harder to navigate than it seems. Even when you decide “Okay, I am going to ask for some hard-hitting truth here,” and directly ask for it, the information you receive can be difficult to digest. When receiving negative feedback on my performance at the TMX Finance® Family of Companies, I know that whoever is giving me feedback wants me to get better and wants me to succeed. Sometimes I have an idea of where I could improve, and those suspicions are confirmed after simply asking for feedback. Other times, …

Dress to Impress: Interview Dress Guide

Dress to Impress: Interview Dress Guide

I was also 15 and applying to be a retail sales associate at a very popular Southern-California inspired clothing retailer. They encouraged employees to reflect the beachy brand they were known for, but I soon realized that this was out of the norm when it came to interviews. Since then, I’ve held several positions. None of which I would have obtained by wearing flip flops to the interview! It’s a rare occasion that …

How Growing Up a Military Brat Prepared Me For Today

How Growing Up a Military Brat Prepared Me For Today

Some of you have heard the term “Military Brat” used for children of military personnel. I grew up in a military home; a home that experienced frequent changes, moves, and new beginnings. My father, Chief Warrant Officer Jeff Bradbury, served 30 years in the United States Coast Guard, making me a “Coastie Brat.” Growing up, I felt this term held a negative connotation on who I was as a person.
