Technology has made maintaining paperwork much easier and faster. However, there are still things that need human interaction. Any paper designed and printed by a computer is not legitimate without an authoring mark on it. These marks can be your signature, company logo, etc. Without these marks, even the most important document is just a scarp. Stamps make the document marking easier. There are several types of stamps available in the market. From wax stamps to ink stamps in Australia at Dial A Stamp, you can choose the best one for you. You can also personalize the information imprinted on these stamps. Here we try to give you an overview of the types of stamps available in the market and their implementation.Continue reading

They were all sculpted by their experiences, and with most success stories there is usually a fruitful mentor-protégé partnership that helped develop them and guide them to success.
Industries were built on great mentorship. Take, for instance, the iconic Oprah Winfrey who had well-renowned author Maya Angelou as her mentor. Steve Jobs mentored not just one but many of the current business moguls making an impact right now, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Marc Benioff of Salesforce. Fashion visionaries like Christian Dior were under the tutelage of haute couture designer Yves St. Laurent. Sir Felix Aylmer mentored Audrey Hepburn, who in turn mentored Elizabeth Taylor. And well, the list goes on.
But how do you find good candidates to mentor? Here are a few things you need to know when choosing the right protégé:

The key to good mentorship strategies are planning ahead and naturally embedding mentorship in the workplace.Continue reading
Kimberly took me to the next level in taking on a leadership role. She encouraged me to success.
I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have an experienced professional like you at my side to launch the Consulting Special Interest Group tomorrow. The agenda looks great and I am convinced that we are well prepared for a productive and successful meeting tomorrow.
Kimberly is dynamic and focused, and an incredible professional in all her activities. She is talented, creative, articulate, and has super people skills. I give her my highest endorsement.

She navigated through the executive level politics and was able to deliver results that greatly improved the process controls and adherence with the company – enabling the company to focus on doing the right thi…
You provided me so many gifts yesterday. I feel like a large weight has fallen from my back. I’m smiling and feel better about having some direction, thank to you!
Kimberly, I continue to be in awe of your leadership skills. Very impressive!! I am so very pleased with how well our retreat went. I could not have asked for more. Inspirational, transformational, and built our team unlike anything I’ve seen before. You have a gift to bring out the best in people and to help them to believe!
Kimberly is one of those people who’s enthusiasm is infectious. You can’t help being motivated by her, even if it’s via email. Her wit, experience, and business savvy make her someone I am honored to be associated with. I am a guest blogger on the University of California Santa Cruz Extension PM website, and Kimberly is our fearless leader and motivational cheerleader. She keeps us going strong with her creativity and pizazz.
This book unabashedly puts forward a new, unambiguous, non-shrinking, and ultimately empowering view of what we all as project managers should commit to be and do every day in our project roles.
If you have the opportunity to take a workshop with Wiefling in person, don’t walk, RUN to sign up at your earliest opportunity. Her classes are Fun, Entertaining, high energy, and you learn some of the most incredible things. Don’t miss it. The only downside to her class is that everything else you take thereafter will pale in comparison. One of the finest class experiences I’ve ever had.
Kimberly is a wonderful blend of energy and creativity melded with a keen mind that knows how to get things done. She is constantly looking for possibilities and then devising ways to bring them to life. She enjoys helping and mentoring others, and I am delighted to know that she is doing that now for organizations ready to go to the next level.
