Stylish Plus Size Clothing - Is it Even Possible?

There is good news for us 'full-figured ladies' who dread shopping for clothing that just doesn't quite fit us, or that fits but looks like we are either wearing a sleeping bag or the tent we used on holiday. Designers have finally realised there is a huge market (no pun intended) out there for dresses beyond size fourteen. Whether it's office attire or evening wear we are looking for, they can now be found at most of the more popular shops, boutiques, and discount stores.


10 Tips For Effectively Tracking Tasks You Have Delegated

Do you think that once you have delegated a task, it is no longer your responsibility? Do you assume the other person will do what you have asked, so you no longer need to worry? Of course, you know that neither of these are smart assumptions.  Find out the effective ways of tracking your delegated task's progression through to its completion.


How to Use Humor in the Office

At one time or another, every one of us has had a joke fall flat. That is to be expected, and, among friends, even the dullest jokes can be funny simply because of our affection for the person who is telling them. However, in an office setting, humour can be a handicap rather than a social balm. In fact, if you misfire too many times or tell a joke that could be deemed offensive, you run the risk of finding yourself out of a job entirely.
