Get inspired to change your workplace.
Greetings, Ninja!

Personal change is hard enough. When others are involved, even the simplest tweak can seem like a monumental undertaking. But when there’s new tech popping up every day to disrupt the way we work, change management is an invaluable skill set.

And who better to lead the organization through those changes than a Ninja? We’re at the center of everything — connecting departments, people, systems, and technology.

That’s why we asked eight Ninjas to share their tips, advice, and strategies for successfully bringing change to the workplace.

Read their stories, and then make sure to share yours in our change management CONTEST! We’ll select the five best stories, and each winner will receive a beautiful, handmade OfficeNinjas Letterboard (take a peek below!).

Be sure to enter before Friday, April 12. Good luck!

Rock on!

Why Trust Needs to Be a Cornerstone of Company Culture
People who trust their company have twice as much energy at work. And take fewer sick days. And are more satisfied with their lives. So how do you start building that culture of trust between colleagues and leadership? Get personal, keep your word, and recognize hard work.

Workplace Culture Develops in Everyday Interactions
Company culture isn’t just happy hours and conference room themes — it’s the sum of every expectation and interaction in the office. To create a more engaging culture (one that actually empowers and motivates), focus on well-being, appreciation, and connection.

ALERT! Screen Shifting Steals Your Productivity [TECHNOLOGY]

Make Smart(er) Decisions and Avoid Bad Ones [DECISION MAKING]
