by Kelsey Galles
2d ago
Author: Heidi Williams Last year, the promising productivity trend line that took hold in 2020 took a dramatic nosedive. Employees who had produced at record levels at the onset of remote work hit a metaphorical wall, and many completely burned out. Although hybrid work has benefits, it isn’t without challenges to meaningful connection, which can lead to isolation, weakened relationships, and a lack of trust. Leaders can turn to a new wave of AI technology to augment their teams’ emotional intelligence—empowering authentic connections that recharge employee productivity.  Emotional intel ..read more

How to Format an APA Reference Page
Grammarly
by Matt Ellis
4d ago
In APA format, a reference page is the page at the end of a written work that lists all the sources used for citations along with their bibliographic information. “Reference page” is the name used by APA format, whereas MLA calls it a “works cited page,” and Chicago uses “bibliography.” Because each format has particular rules about how to cite and list sources, the APA format reference page is very different from the works cited page or other bibliographies. If you’re writing a paper in APA format, use the rules and guidelines below to make sure your reference page is correct. Give your wr ..read more

Flow: Ensure Sentences Are in Logical Order
Grammarly
by Lindsay Kramer
5d ago
Have you ever read a paragraph that felt disjointed or choppy? By choppy, we mean the sentence order was discombobulated; ideas bumped into each other rather than supported each other, and you might have found yourself rereading to see if you missed something. In short, it was a mess, and you likely encountered a paragraph that didn’t flow. A paragraph that doesn’t flow can make a piece of writing difficult to read. But not to worry, we’ve got tips on how to avoid (and fix) this issue. The key to writing that flows is logical sentence order. Give your writing extra polish Grammarly helps yo ..read more

Epigraph: Definition and Examples of This Literary Device
Grammarly
by Parker Yamasaki

At the beginning of Chinua Achebe’s 1958 novel Things Fall Apart, there is a page with four lines from a W. B. Yeats poem: Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world. These famous lines are the book’s epigraph. An epigraph is a short quote that a writer uses to set up the literary work that follows. In this example, the poem is about a society on the brink of apocalypse. By introducing the story with this reference, the writer prepares readers to enter a world full of disruption ..read more

14 Ways to Say ‘You’re Welcome’
Grammarly
by Devon Delfino
1w ago
Doing something for others—whether big or small—feels good. And when someone thanks you for it, the typical response is “you’re welcome.” It’s a way of acknowledging that “thank you,” and it’s a common phrase whether you’re in the workplace, at home, or at a café. But in a professional setting, your work is often tied to doing things that benefit others. (For example, you may provide some much-needed context to someone so they can begin a project, or you may simply grab someone a water while you’re at the office snack area.) So the phrase “you’re welcome” could start to feel stale. And while ..read more

What is Circumlocution? Definition and Examples
Grammarly
by Parker Yamasaki
1w ago
Wouldn’t it be great if every time we sat down to write, we knew exactly what to say and how to say it? Unfortunately, there are times when our brains need a few tries before they can organize our words clearly and succinctly. Sometimes our first, second, and even third drafts are full of unnecessary phrases, sentences, and tangents. This excessive use of language is called circumlocution. It’s a way of “writing around” a word, phrase, or topic. Most of the time it is accidental. However, circumlocution is not always a negative thing. If used skillfully, it can be an asset as a literary devic ..read more
