What We Do in Life Echoes in Eternity | Michael Guglielmo

What We Do in Life Echoes in Eternity | Michael Guglielmo

 

Is it ever too late to turn your life around? At the age of 23, Michael Guglielmo was convicted of eight counts of attempted murder. Today, Guglielmo is one of the top individual recruiters of bone-marrow donors in the country. This is his mission and his passion – he calls it his “true calling.” Working with the international nonprofit Delete Blood Cancer/DKMS, Guglielmo has organized more than 600 events that enrolled over 70,000 could-be donors, and in the process has secured over 240 matches-giving over 240 people a chance at survival, rather than an assured death sentence.

Living from your Soul | Chelsea Donelon

Living from your Soul | Chelsea Donelon

 

 

 

 What if everything you know changed in an instant? Chelsea shares her incredible, inspiring and humbling experience of coming back from losing everything – and embracing the uncertainty that we all face every second of every day. 
 
As a fresh graduate Chelsea Donelon is in the midst of an uncertain time in life. In May she finished her undergraduate degree in Politics and International Relations at Royal Holloway, University of London to begin pursuing a career in human rights and international development. 
 
She has faced uncertainty before. Growing up as a competitive ski racer with dreams of the Olympics, she suddenly had to re-evaluate life when a car crash left her paralyzed. What’s more that same car crash tragically killed her mother, grandmother, and grandfather forcing her to realize the uncertainty of life itself.
 
She hasn’t let this tragedy or her spinal cord injury hold her back however. Shortly after the accident she learned to walk part-time using a brace that allowed her to use her core to compensate for her paralyzed legs. After, she not only returned to high school but joined the swim team forcing the establishment of a para-division for competition. 
 
In her pursuit of becoming a “renaissance woman” she has worked during her degree in a vast range of areas including MRI research of children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, coordinating ticket sales at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, and interning with a Vice-President at RBC Dominion Securities. She has also volunteered on committees of groups like Amnesty International, Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority, and Royal Holloway Students Union.

Harvard Business Review: #1 Key to Motivation

Harvard Business Review: #1 Key to Motivation

 

In a multi-year study, researchers at the Harvard Business School first asked 600 managers from dozens of different companies to rank the impact of five factors that are normally associated with motivation – recognition, incentives, support from managers and colleagues, clear goals and a sense of making progress. In this first phase of the study, recognition for good work was ranked by managers as the most important factor in motivation.
