10 Ways to Go Green At Work and Celebrate Earth Day!

This year, we celebrate Earth Day on April 22, 2010. Earth Day allows everyone to become more aware of the environment, and their impact on their surroundings. It's a day to promote awareness and show your appreciation for the earth. It's too easy to be oblivious to your surroundings, this Earth Day be aware of where you are, and how your everyday life affects our Earth.

Tiger Leasing has put together a 10 tips to help you celebrate Earth Day at your office.

  • Turn off the lights! If your office has enough windows, rely on natural light to get you through your day. If the sunshine doesn't reach you at work, make sure to turn the lights off when you leave a room for more than 10 minutes.

  • Put your computer to sleep! Utilize your computer's sleep mode to save energy when you're not at your desk. Set your computer to sleep after 10 minutes of inactivity.

  • Rethink that ink! Do you really need to print off that document? Printing wastes paper, energy and more. If you can get by reading the page online, do it. If you have to print, make sure you're printing on both sides of the paper.

  • Buy recycled office supplies! From paper and pens to DVDs and mouse pads, there is typically an environmentally friendly option when you need new office supplies. Be aware of what you use, and how it affects the environment.

  • Buy in bulk! When possible, combine your orders so that you don't need to make multiple trips to the store. When ordering in bulk, you cut down on the amount of delivery travel and packaging.

  • Recycle! This should go without saying. Recycle what you can. Look for new programs and initiatives to make it worthwhile for your co-workers to recycle as well.

  • Use Fair Trade certified or organic products! Office coffee is a big deal. Some people need that cup of joe to get through the day. Why not invest in Fair Trade Certified or Organic coffee and cut down on the impact you're having on the environment?

  • Reuse those plates! Ditch the paper plates and plastic forks, invest in some reusable utensils and you'll make your lunch breaks a little greener.

  • Go digital! Zip drives are affordable and can cut down on paper and space. Utilize digital file storage and make some room in your office!

  • Grow something green! Once you've cut down on that paper and filing, you'll have room for some plants in your office! They will absorb any air pollution around your desk and brighten up your work space as well!
Earth Day may be a once a year celebration, but respecting the earth should be a full time commitment. You don't have to make any huge life changes to make a difference. Just be more aware of your actions and make the small changes that really add up for the environment!

Happy Earth Day!

7 Tips for Successful Leaders

Leadership skills are important in both your business and personal life. Mastering the art of becoming a successful leader takes experience and knowledge. Successful leaders can motivate others to work hard, inspire confidence from those around them, and take control of difficult situations. At Tiger Leasing, we understand the importance of developing leadership skills, and have put together 7 tips to help you increase your ability.

  • Think ahead - To be a great leader, you have to be able to look past the day to day issues and see the big picture. Extraordinary leaders see well beyond today or this week or even this year. They understand where they want to go, and they make the necessary plans to get to that goal. Understanding where you want to go, and having a realistic plan to get there will generate a confidence and sense of calm. Planning ahead and having a solid direction will allow you to show others how to reach your shared goal.

  • Communicate clearly - Having goals and a vision won't do you any good if you can't communicate your plans and objectives. Work on giving detailed and easy to understand instructions. Focus on really listening to others so when a misunderstanding comes up, you can tackle the real issues. Communication is a two way street. It is as important to listen and understand others as it is to really think about what you are saying.

  • Show your enthusiasm - You won't get other people excited if you lack concern. Your attraction to a subject or project is contagious. Remember the phrase "Water seeks its own level"? Your level of excitement will inspire others to get excited as well. That common ground will allow you to relate to and motivate others to accomplish the tasks necessary for reaching your goal.

  • Make the tough calls - Successful leaders aren't afraid of important decisions, because they have the tools to make informed choices. Whether they meet with management to gather information or create a pros and cons list to weigh all of the factors, good leaders understand the steps that need to go in decision making. Strong leaders are able to weigh the facts and opinions of others and ultimately reach a conclusion that has the most benefits. Strong leaders posses a determination and resolve that allow them to reach conclusions and make the tough decisions in a fair and timely manner.

  • Let ethics rule - A successful leader has a code of ethics that they stick to no matter what. Without principles and honor, leaders often fall. We've all heard the phrase "Those who stand for nothing, will fall for anything". Successful leaders know what they are standing for. They are guided by their ethics, and let their character shine through. They can handle tough situations because they are not swayed by what is easy, they are guided by what is right. This code of ethics allows good leaders to develop a personalized leadership style. Staying true to their character is what allows many successful leaders to reach their goals and inspire others along the way.

  • Be gracious - A good leader understands the importance of giving others credit when it is due. Acknowledging others' work is important to establishing a constructive atmosphere. When you recognize others for their contributions, you are demonstrating your graciousness, and allowing others to feel like they are truly a contributing member of the team. Successful leaders understand they can't do it all alone, and appreciate those that are helping.

  • Have a sense of humor - Even the most dedicated leaders need to understand there are times that you have to relax and have a little fun. Teams need to smile and enjoy themselves every now and again. Successful leaders recognize when they can't take themselves or a situation too seriously. Lightening the mood with a joke or reward is a great way to keep the team fresh and ready to work. Rewarding those who are working tirelessly along side of you is an important part of keeping others motivated.
