  • Trust: The New Workplace Currency - 15 Ways We Derail Trust at Work
    by Nan S. Russell - September 11, 2017
    Social media and a 24/7 news-frenzy fuel distrust no matter one's political leanings.

And all of that being accelerated and highlighted via technology. No wonder trust in government nears historic lows. While most of us don't work in such politic...

  • Does The Clock Manage You?
    by Carole Kanchier - September 7, 2017
    Are you always jamming your schedule, feel you can't waste a second? Do you allow the clock to manage you? Or, do you feel comfortable trusting your intuition to guide your time? To better manage time, we set priorities and schedule our days and months. But we often still feel pressured, lack total control. The conventional approach to managing time was appropriate for the Industrial-Age, but is this effective in th...

    by Kris Dunn - September 6, 2017
    Sometime after your first year with your company, you start to settle in. All the onboarding is complete, the honeymoon is over and you've accurately assessed your job as a mix of positives and negatives. If you're still there and not on the market after a year, that generally means you're content.

  • Weird In A World That's Not: A Q&A With Author Jennifer Romolini
    by Lindsey Pollak - September 6, 2017
    Read the original post on Lindsey's blog. She had me at “weird.” I couldn’t wait to dig into Jennifer Romolini’s brand new book, Weird In a World That’s Not: A Career Guide for Misfits, F*ckups, and Failures. After all, who among us hasn’t at some point felt totally out of place, especially in a work setting? I recently had the opportunity to chat with Jennifer about how the book c...

    by Marshall Goldsmith - September 5, 2017

You decide to host a “town hall” meeting, in which you strongl...
  • Lazy. Selfish. Financially Flighty. 5 Millennial Myths Busted
    by Lindsey Pollak - September 1, 2017
    Read the original post on Lindsey's blog. We’ve all heard so many myths about millennials. And, of course, they’re mostly super negative.

  • Nag, Nag, Nag
    by Sherri Edwards - September 1, 2017
    A recent discussion prompted a deeper look into nagging and/or micromanaging. Both behaviors have negative connotations, although each may actually be necessary due to someone else’s unresponsiveness or bad behavior. So why do the naggers get the bad rap while the people who prompt it continue on as if they aren’t part of the problem? Let’s start with an analysis of one the problems. There seem to be diffe...
