About Principia

“There are seven things that will destroy us: Wealth without work; Pleasure without conscience; Knowledge without character; Religion without sacrifice; Politics without principle; Science without humanity; Business without ethics.”

— Mahatma Gandhi

Principia derives its name from a Latin word that translates as “first principles”. As such, it believes the following standards are key to diagnosing problems and implementing useful solutions for its clients.

Principia’s Beliefs & Values Revolve Around People

  • Leaders are responsible for success…they must first set the example
  • Honesty, integrity, and fairness are essential to any successful enterprise
  • People are motivated & accountable when they have faith in their future
  • Organizations change only after people change

Vision: Principia strives to be the standard for fair and ethical engagement of clients by which management consultants nationally judge themselves.

Mission: To link America’s future to the Green Collar Agenda, using cutting-edge technology to combat issues of environmental crises while training underserved communities to become the next generation of technologists in support of these sectors. Our work is based on the notion that making principled decisions that maximize triple bottom line results* is difficult, but vital to success.

*Concurrently maximizing financial performance, social wealth creation, and environmental responsibility

 

Note: Principia’s passion is working with the mature end of the leadership spectrum… the 40+ crowd… senior executives, business owners and top professionals with difficult, complex, or sophisticated problems. These are the “veterans”, having managed successfully through any number of “killer” problems during their careers… they’ve “been there and done that”. They want to improve the value of the companies they lead and they understand the benefit of seasoned, dispassionate outside professional counsel.

How to Thrive as a Remote Worker

Working from home can be a steep learning curve, especially for those who thrive in an office environment. When the COVID-19 pandemic caused offices to close around the country, companies were forced to send their employees home and develop remote working strategies. While some people might have welcomed the change, working from home can be challenging for a number of reasons. If you’re new to remote work and are having difficulties adapting, use this resource to help you thrive in the pandemic era.

Adapting to working from home

It’s possible to be just as productive at home as at the office if you follow some of these tips.

  • Create a designated workspace in your home to make it distraction-free.
  • Set regular hours for your workday, and don’t forget to take breaks for lunch and rests.
  • If you have kids at home, recognize that you may need to be flexible with your work hours — ask your boss for some leniency around deadlines.

Improve your technology

Having the right tools is paramount to being a successful remote worker.

  • If your personal laptop isn’t cutting it, consider shopping for a new one, and use a  Lenovo coupon to help you save money on your investment.
  • Consider getting a mouse (bluetooth versions are really useful) to help you navigate your laptop with ease.
  • If you’re consistently on the phone for work, be sure to buy a headset or bluetooth earbuds to make your calls more enjoyable.

Mental adjustments

Working from home will require a mental shift.

  • One of the challenging parts of working from home is coping with distractions—stay focused by following these tips.
  • If you’re having trouble completing your work projects at home, schedule regular check-ins with your boss or manager to help you stay focused.
  • Keep tabs on your mental health and take care of yourself by exercising regularly and reaching out to friends and family for support.
  • Consider professional coaching via Principia if you need further guidance with adapting to the new pandemic era.

Working from home is a big transition for many office workers, so use the above advice to help you thrive in a remote setting.
