I'm an entrepreneur + empath with media roots who believes innovation should always serve our most human needs- the next frontier is the intersection of technology and our emotions 💫 Through my time in media and tech I've become a Gen Z expert and focus my time on building solutions for this generation's mental health and wellness needs. Right now I'm busy building a new tech category, called emotional media 💙 not social media, with my company Blue Fever- a non-toxic community app for the expression & support of Gen Z’s most authentic self. I co-founded BF to create the big sister support I always wanted but never had growing up. 👯♀️ Blue Fever is backed by amazing investors like Amazon, Bumble, Blue Run Ventures and more 🤩

Don't let your company's departments get cut off from each other and stop communicating about and progressing toward shared goals. In the early days of a startup, most team members likely wear multiple hats and have to pitch in together on a variety of projects. But as companies grow and develop, different departments may adopt their own project management and communications systems. While it may seem like it's a good idea for every team to find and leverage the tools and processes that work best for them, a drive for "departmental efficiency" can have the unintended effect of creating team silos. If every team or department in an organization is working with a different set of processes, systems, and tools, they may end up engaged in redundant work, overlook important tasks, and struggle to effectively communicate updates and needs with other stakeholders. All of these misfires can eventually lead to frustration for both the staff and the customers and clients the business serves. Fortunately, with the right strategies from leadership, it's possible to prevent the prevalence and minimize the impact of working in silos. Below, 16 Fast Company Executive Board members share their best tips and tricks for establishing a culture that values both maximum efficiency and productive collaboration.

If you want to keep your team intact through this period of mass workforce turnover, it’s important to be proactive and take steps toward employee retention. Below, 16 members of Fast Company Executive Board each share one thing a business owner can do to make staying on the most attractive option for their workers.
