How well do you know your team?


Miro - 1 truth 2 lies template

1 truth 2 lies is a simple icebreaker to do and creates healthy banter.

Here’s how to play:

  • Team members populate a total of three sticky notes with 2 lies and 1 truth.
  • Once completed, everyone uses dots to vote for the one they think is the truth.
  • Do a round-robin where each person gets to share verbally what the correct “truth” sticky was.

This icebreaker is really easy, quick and fun, and is a great way to energize your team before starting a meeting.

5 Easy Steps to Your Dream Career


You’re a talented and ambitious person… so WHY aren’t you getting the fulfillment or happiness you deserve in your career?

The traditional career ladder might have you stuck.

But it’s NOT your fault! Flexible career planning – the kind that adjusts with your life stages and creates true happiness – is NOT taught in school.

QUICK TIP: Start with a “Good Vibes File”. Round up all the positive feedback, accolades and wins you’ve accomplished recently. Are there any common themes? What was it about these projects that really lit you up? That’s a good place to start steering your career towards! But, while it’s a quick win, I know that tip won’t answer all your questions…

That’s why I’m offering a FREE mini-guide called: “Define Your Dream Career in 5 Easy Steps”.

You’ll gain strategies to instantly clarify your work related values, unique talents and strengths, and identify the world of options available to you, so you can…

  • Escape the cycle of quiet quitting and burnout,
  • Connect with your work from the heart, and
  • Get on track towards happiness in your career – FAST!

I have helped so many clients create careers and lifestyles they LOVE using these exact strategies – and I’m going to hand them to you for FREE.

Click “Download” to get your free copy.

Life isn’t a straight line, and your career doesn’t have to be either! It’s time to trade that feeling of being stuck on a rigid ladder for a career path that’s as free and vibrant as you.

Hagrid pet of the week

Named after the beloved Harry Potter character, Hagrid is nothing like his namesake. Hagrid loves to appreciate the outside and nature from the inside of his castle and the safety of AC and soft perches.

Hagrid loves to sing, speed race, and nap. He loves mom the most… until dad comes home. Snuggles, blankets, and treats are all this guy needs to be content.

As the vet said; “Hagrid is a happy, healthy, hefty boy.”

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
