I wasn't sure what I thought of this covered jar when I finished it earlier this week. I spent some time with it at the studio today and it's growing on me. The domed lid is somewhat architectonic, or so I like to think. I'm gonna play with this idea some more. #inthestudio#pottery#buffwithochre#ceramics#coveredjarsinclay
It's been a while since I've done #fridayintroductions so here goes... Hi! I'm Rosaura, & I over use exclaimation marks. I'm passionate & excited & not afraid to show it with ALL the punctuation!! I love travelling & color is my love language. I believe in fun & not taking yourself too serioiusly. One of my main goals with Pigment & Parchment is to make the process the least stressful part of wedding planning- I want to only bring smiles & surprises to my couples' lives. If I'm not exploring, I can be found in my home studio singing show tunes at the top of my lungs while my cat Elphaba judges me. My husband Nathan & I are game night-karaoke & costume party loving-dancing fools who are always down to make a ridiculously elaborate meal if it means we can laugh the night away with friends. That's me in a nut shell. Tell me about yourself!!
A new favorite. Post earrings composed of vintage chain and silver solder. Ombré effect via fire scale and acid pickle process. After enduring several months of tedium-induced inspiration-drought, and feeling trapped by process, metalsmithing is fun again! See them in action a couple posts back. 😍
It’s hard to collaborate if you view your colleague as the competition. Even when #leaders don’t explicitly paint a win-lose game for their #teams , the competitive mindset is the default for most high-achieving professionals. So you have to communicate that success in the team can be greater and more exciting when people work together. Emphasize the opportunity for all team members to value and learn from each other. And follow these tactics to help employees adopt a teaming mindset: ⠀
* Model the behavior you’re hoping to inspire. Demonstrate curiosity and interest in the people you work with, ask them genuine questions, and respond thoughtfully to what you hear.⠀
⠀ * Place a high value on and reward successful teaming more than individual performance. ⠀
* Frame the challenge ahead (the work, the initiative, the project) as something in need of diverse perspectives and skills.⠀
