Autonomy Increases Employee Loyalty

Tullio Siragusa

Autonomy Increases Employee Loyalty. Most celebrated columnist and cartoonist Frank Tyger says, “Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.” Autonomy brings both to the workplace.

It requires accountability, rewards, and governance. It’s just not driven top down. It’s self-administered.”.

Letting Go of Blame Will Set You Free

Tullio Siragusa

Letting Go of Blame Will Set You Free. When I was a kid, I had to ask permission to leave the dinner table. My parents were loving human beings who were also old school.

The pressure was constantly on, to behave properly, do the right thing, and to please my parents.

Decisiveness Is the Elixir to Get Unstuck

Tullio Siragusa

Decisiveness Is the Elixir to Get Unstuck. I heard from a sage that if ever you are not sure, or not clear on a decision, you should not make one. Isn’t that making a decision? I am not saying this to be a smart aleck, I am just stating the obvious. No decision is a decision, but it isn’t a decisive one. I think what the sage meant was that if you don’t feel confident in standing by your decision, don’t make one.

The Impact of Self-Awareness on Achieving Goals. Remember as a kid when you purchased a puzzle and started putting it together? Some had 100s of pieces, some as many as a thousand.

The ROI of Democracy in the Workplace

Tullio Siragusa

The ROI of Democracy in the Workplace. I recently asked people at my company Nearsoft , what kind of topics might be of interest for me to write about.

In a big organization, is it even worth it or is it just simpler to change jobs?”.

Scarcity Is an Illusion

Tullio Siragusa

Scarcity Is an Illusion. It’s tempting and easy to choose to see life as a glass half empty or half full. It’s also easy to judge having more or less, as either being full or empty.

But the more important question is what comes first, the reality or the state of mind? In what order do they happen?

The Most Powerful Is the Most Vulnerable

Tullio Siragusa

The Most Powerful Is the Most Vulnerable. Growing up as the youngest of three often felt as if I had to catch up with my siblings. There is a rather large age gap between us and being one of three boys made it fairly competitive between us. Don’t get me wrong I love my brothers, and today the age gap is irrelevant but at the time I felt like I had to get it together fast in order to keep up. That’s a lot of self-imposed pressure for a kid which continued well into how I’ve led my adult life.

Self-Acceptance Will Supercharge Your Life

Tullio Siragusa

Self-Acceptance Will Supercharge Your Life. For a long time, society has demanded that we show up as good people. Do the right things and practice Godliness. The facts are that this has turned out to be an impossible expectation to fulfill.
