Reveille Group is proud to be participating in Wreaths Across America again this year. Each December, on National Wreaths Across America Day, thousands of volunteers spend a few hours of their day placing wreaths on the graves of our nation’s fallen heroes.

What started in 1992 as a personal act of kindness, has grown to be a nationally recognized organization dedicated to honoring our country's fallen heroes. Wreaths Across America has laid over 700,000 memorial wreaths at over 1,000 locations across the United States; bringing together volunteers, veterans, and hundreds of organizations to:

 1. Remember  - our nations fallen U.S veterans,

 2. Honor  - those who serve,

 3. And Teach  - the next generation the value of freedom.

Please consider contributing to our donations page https://fundly.com/wreaths-across-america-2017 , so that every fallen veteran can be honored this holiday season. Just $15 will sponsor 1 wreath for a child, a parent, a neighbor, or a friend who you’d like to honor and remember.

Thank you for all that have already contributed to our campaign. With your help, we have already raised close to 50% of our target funds.

Wishing you and yours all the best this holiday season,

Selah & Wayne

When was the last time you felt overwhelmed while at the office? If stress dominates your every work day, you’re certainly not alone. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), over 65% of Americans list work as their top source of stress, and over one-third report experience workplace stress for a prolonged period of time

Workplace stress continues to rise each year and with it, so does the rate of absenteeism. How bad is it? According to The American Institute of Stress

  • An estimated one million workers are absent every day due to stress. 
  • And job stress is estimated to cost the US $300 billion annually due to accidents, diminished productivity, and employee turnover. 

As a full-time professional, you spend a minimum of 40 hours a week focused on your work, or nearly 2,000 hours a year. Such an extensive amount of time spent on work, in addition to all of life’s demands and stressors, can take an incredible toll on your mental health and ability to perform, reinforcing the importance of demonstrating emotional intelligence (or EQ) to reduce stress and gain perspective. 

What does EQ mean and how does it affect our professional life? At its core, EQ refers to your capacity to recognize, understand, and manage you own emotions, in addition to your capacity to recognize, understand, and influence the emotions of others. If you boil this definition down a bit further, it refers to each individual’s mindfulness and self-awareness

With workplace stress continuously on the rise, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that employers are starting to value EQ over IQ. In fact, according to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report , emotional intelligence is expected to become one of the top 10 job skills by 2020. Wondering why employers have started to place such an emphasis on emotional intelligence when making hiring decisions? 

Eight Reasons Why Employers Seek Candidates with High EQ 

1. They Can Handle Pressure. They tend to have better coping mechanisms and healthy support systems in place to handle higher levels of stress. 

2. They Appreciate and Collaborate with Others. They understand the importance of teamwork, and have well-developed people skills that help them in building relationships. 

3. They Listen. They pick up on people’s emotions through tone and body language. 

4. They Take Feedback. They tend to be less defensive and more open to feedback, especially when it involves areas for improvement. 

5. They Are Empathetic. They build trust and cohesiveness among team members. 

6. They Set Good Examples. They don’t get easily flustered when things don’t go according to plan. 

7. They Make Careful and Comprehensive Decisions. They leverage their mindfulness to make better judgements about how their decisions will impact others. 

8. They Have Found Their WorkFLOW. They utilize their awareness to become fully immersed and focused, aiming to tackle one problem or task at a time.

Physical Activity – Renewed Purpose

As Veterans, active duty service members, spouses, family members, donors, and industry business leaders arrived at the prestigious Plaza Hotel in New York City, for the Honoring America’s Wounded Warfighters Gala, it was hard not to be drawn to the bright lights and skyscrapers of New York City. I attended this same event a few years prior, and at that time, I had no clue how participating in sports again would positively impact my life and future.
