In this week’s Facebook Live, Tiffany Linke-Boyko shares three tips on how you can shake up your leadership style before the end of the year. Her best piece of advice is to treat the last 60 days of 2018 the same way you would the first 60 days of 2019. There is no need to wait until the new year to take on a challenge, learn a skill, or find something to optimize to make your work more efficient.

Welcome back! We'll be sharing our biggest lessons from 2017, loads of highlights from the year, and our January 2018 updates later this week.
To kick off our 2018 blog posts, I'm throwing it back to a fundamental skill shared by Jess Trinca, Senior Vice-President and General Manager at Darling Media, how to send a great email. Here at Startup Edmonton, I'm constantly shifting between communications channels: email, an obscene number of Slack channels and teams, social media accounts up to my eyeballs, Skype Business Chat, Microsoft Teams, plus, the occasional face-to-face conversation with another real-life human.
My favourite piece of advice from Jess is to be clear about what you want and ask for it.
