In theory, best practices bring positive results. The intent is to use them to simplify processes, improve quality, save time, and provide consistency.

We live in a time where everyone is visible more than ever before -- now we can even see how far our reach extends with profile views, shares, tweets, and “likes.” In a world where every failure, frustration, and triumph is publicly recognized online, an unexpected yet poignant result is that conversely, many of us feel less “seen,” both in the workplace, and at home. Recognition is inspiring and if we had more of it, we’d probably work harder with our families and friends as well.
