Why is Fit So Important to Your Office Reception Area?
Why is Fit So Important to Your Office Reception Area?
Everyone likes the idea of saving money, especially so on high-ticket items. However, there is probably a limit to what you would sacrifice to save a few bucks. Would you agree? Generally, things must fit the intended purpose to make practical sense. Example: you wouldn't buy a pair of shoes two sizes too big or small to save $50, would you? Would you hire a plumber to do your electrical work to save a few hundred dollars? Sometimes, what you must give up in exchange for the savings turns out not to be saving when it's the wrong fit. Conversely, ready-made office reception desks operate under the premises of one-size-fits-all. They want you to believe that someone out there was smart enough to figure out your needs, no matter who you are, what size space you have, what you do, or your company personality.
6 Clever Moves When Designing a New Modern Conference Room
6 Clever Moves When Designing a New Modern Conference Room
If you are an online shopper planning to design a conference room, buckle your seatbelt, because you are in for a wild ride. It’s true—online shopping has its perks. Most of all, it’s convenient. However, convenience alone is not always the best approach to designing optimal conference rooms for your company. In fact, what you gain in convenience, you lose in reassurance of getting the best quality, fit, function, and color(s). If you can’t see it or touch it before you buy it, that leaves a lot of unanswered questions.

“When the Winds of Change Blow, Some People Build Walls, Others Build Windmills”
It is tempting to make a boring product or offer repetitive service, the reasons being, it’s easy to do, requires limited engagement, fits the needs of the masses, and gets limited criticism or pushback, no stress. If one can make everyone happy because expectations are lower, then no one is unhappy, and we are all good.
Everyone Else Is Wrong

Marcello fell in love with our Indiana executive desk and wanted it for his law office. He wanted something modern and trendy. Sara opted in on the Columbus reception desk because she wanted something simplistic and modern for holistic medical practice. Barr wanted an outstanding completely customized conference table for his upscale car dealership, something that would impress visitors.

People don’t believe what you believe. They don’t know what you know or have what you have. Everyone has thoughts swirling around in their heads. Everyone thinks they are right. When it comes to making things better, most everyone wants it and have their version of what that means and how to get it for themselves.

How Things Hiding in Plain Sight In Your Workplace Affect Behavior and Thinking
How Things Hiding in Plain Sight In Your Workplace Affect Behavior and Thinking

If you haven’t noticed the impact things have on the people around you, you are not alone. Rarely does the average person think of changing their surroundings as a way of affecting human behavior. When we don’t get the response we want from others, we look to change them, not their environment. By focusing strictly on the human side of things, we totally miss the subtle yet powerful impact of objects on our unconscious thinking—the size or scale of a room and the furniture in it, a wall color, the type and comfort level of a chair, and so much more.

In the words of Fred Steele, a sociotechnical theorist, most of us are “environmentally incompetent,” like fish who know nothing but water. In much the same way, our physical environment remains silent. Hidden in plain sight, it doesn’t speak out. There is never any friction, so we don’t realize its presence. Because of this, we miss the impact of things around us on the behavior of others. Stated in reverse, we don’t use things to our advantage to drive change when transforming our workplace.

Making Creativity in Your Business an Inside Out Affair
Making Creativity in Your Business an Inside Out Affair

Businesses often start from a single creative idea, often had by one person for an innovative service or product. The challenge? No idea, irrespective of how creative it is, in its original form, ever lasts forever. New ideas come to the forefront to supplant old ones, and old one evaporates with new ones giving rise to trendiness. When paradigms change in science, technology, and societies shift, the world thinks and conducts itself differently. If businesses do not replicate these shifts, they will often come to see themselves on the proverbi...
