Hey Hi Tech Family,
It's been a little while! I hope you've enjoyed your holidays and you're taking on the New Year in stride. Personally, ..I took some time to reflect and assess how I show up and whom I (ideally) show up for as CEO of Hi Tech Consulting (I'll get to that in a minute).
But back to this New Year, New Me 💁🏽♀️ ... Kidding :)
We live in a society where people put a lot of emphasis on the new year and the symbolic new beginnings, but the reality of the situation is that most New Year resolutions are never reached. Most, as in 91% of resolutions, are never reached. Statistically, most of you have quit already!
I used to be in that number - a statistical failure. In today's fast-paced digital era, where leaders (especially Black women) are expected to pivot at the speed of light, the harmony between professional drive and personal well-being has never been more crucial. However, in my self-reflection, I began to realize that once I began to shift my relationship with technology as a tool for wellness, I've been much more effective in managing workloads and personal responsibilities - making goal-setting and decision-making easier and clearer.
If you're like me (ambitious, multi-faceted, innovative, etc. 😅), you don't want to DO less; you want to STRESS less and DO MORE.
Tech is the answer.
Why Tech for Well-being?
My passion lies in the transformation — not only of operations and marketing strategies but of the very essence of leadership. It’s about doing more and stressing less; it's about the potential of technology to bring about sustainable growth that doesn’t sacrifice the moments that matter.
Through immersive workshops and personalized consulting, I share strategies to thrive in an increasingly digital landscape. Imagine ending your day as effectively as you started, not because you did less but because the tech did more! 🙌🏾
Here's what empowerment through technology looks like:
✨ Automated Assistants take the load off mundane tasks, so you can reserve your energy for strategic thinking and visionary leadership.
✨ Unified Communications bring your team together on a single platform, fostering a culture where every voice is heard and no message is lost.
✨ Visual Project Tracking keeps the pulse of productivity at your fingertips, freeing you from the weeds to see the bigger picture.
✨ Personal AI Assistants manage tasks across various projects and responsibilities, affording you the clarity of thought to lead with intention and purpose.
✨ Real-Time Collaboration eliminates the chaos of version control, aligning your team's efforts seamlessly.
✨ Insightful Time-Tracking offers a panoramic view of your day, turning hours into assets and prioritizing tasks that propel you toward your goals.
✨ Smart Task Delegation ensures equitable distribution of tasks, aligning strengths with assignments in a symphony of productivity.
✨ Data Visualization Dashboards convert numbers into narratives, crafting a story of progress and performance that guides every decision.
✨ AI Scheduling orchestrates your calendar like magic, syncing siloes of work and rest for unimaginable work-life integration.
✨ Digital Well-being Tools weave tranquility into your digital tapestry, ensuring peace of mind is a click away.
