How Award-Winning App Data Company Reincubate Improved Performance Management

Interviewing Aidan Fitzpatrick is an exercise in forgetting your next question. The founder and CEO of Reincubate, Fitzpatrick is equal parts storyteller, showman, and data geek, which leaves me repeatedly checking my notes after he pursues a fascinating tangent. Reincubate itself qualifies as a fascinating tangent. Now ten years old, “the app data company” was founded when Fitzpatrick couldn't find a solution to recover data from his damaged phone. He built the world’s first tool for iOS data recovery; a decade later, millions use Reincubate’s products to extract and recover data that would otherwise be lost forever. As a small tech company, Reincubate prides itself on being “Lean” - it’s one of their core values. The London-based team ships product updates constantly to keep pace with all the ways people can use - and lose - data.

TINYcon Speaker Heather Younger explains the importance of “Leadership with Heart”

To say that Heather Younger, J.D., has a diverse skillset would be an understatement. She’s an in-demand speaker, a Leadership Warrior, one of our favorite authors to cite, and a highly recommended LinkedIn follow.

Why a 40-hour work week is key to a “work-life circle”

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos recently gave a fascinating interview to fellow CEO Mathias Döpfner, the CEO of publisher Axel Springer. There’s a lot of interesting revelations in the conversation: Bezos’ tendency to butcher quotes, his approach to criticism, his vision to “move all heavy industry off of Earth” (he’s really into space travel). I recommend reading the transcript. Here’s the quote that stuck out to me: “I get asked about work-life balance all the time. And my view is, that's a debilitating phrase because it implies there's a strict trade-off. And the reality is, if I am happy at home, I come into the office with tremendous energy. And if I am happy at work, I come home with tremendous energy. It actually is a circle; it's not a balance.”

How stress management can change your relationship with work

    Stress is a part of life, so naturally, it’s part of our work lives. The causes of stress - stressors - are all around us. We can’t eliminate all stressors from our careers or our workplaces, but building a stress management skill set can be the difference between burnout and job satisfaction. Learning how to manage stress is critical, because stressing about stress can take years off your life. A study of thirty thousand Americans showed that the respondents who believed stress was impacting their health had increased risk of premature death.
