  • healthy work life take care of yours
    by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - September 4, 2018
    The donuts are there to greet you in the break room…the Diet Coke is the “perfect fix” for getting through the afternoon…it’s so much easier to “push through” rather than get up from the desk to stretch… and so it goes, often day after day. We spend the majority of our lives at work, and, while we’re there, we’re focused, productive, and taking care of business,...
  • 5 Things Yoga Can Teach Us About Leadership
    by Sara Canaday - August 31, 2018
    I’ve noticed something lately during my time on the yoga mat. My yoga practice isn’t just enhancing my mental and physical health; it’s also highlighted some interesting parallels that map to essential leadership concepts. I suppose that makes sense, considering yoga has been a path to self-realization and enlightenment for thousands of years. A yoga studio (or our yoga space at home) might seem far remove...
  • 3 Questions To Ask Yourself When Everything You've Tried Has Failed
    by Kathy Caprino - August 30, 2018
    Throughout my life, I’ve experienced times when things were truly falling apart (or so it seemed), and nothing I did improved it or turned it around. One of those times was at the end of corporate life 17 years ago. I was chronically ill for four years (with a serious infection of my trachea), depressed and exhausted, dealing with narcissistic bosses and toxic leaders, as well as sexual harassment and discrimination, and...

  • Leading Powerfully Through Positivity
    by Dr. Maynard Brusman - August 27, 2018
    Negativity and discord have reached historic levels in our culture. Most aspects of our lives are widely affected by worsening attitudes, constant complaints and pessimistic mindsets. Like a virus, they spread easily, even when unwarranted. Negativity impacts families, communities, institutions and workplaces. Leaders see the results firsthand, regardless of whether they recognize the causes. Turnover rises, projects fail t...
  • Avoiding Complacency When Everything is Just Okay
    by Sherri Edwards - August 24, 2018
    It’s probably not news to anyone that candidates and employers behave differently in a hot job market than they do in a tight one. When jobs were scarce, candidates may have been victims of company ghosting (they interviewed and never heard another word from the company). With few jobs and abundant candidates, some employers didn’t think they had to bother with basic courtesies. In tough times, some people might ha...
  • Challenge the Echo Effect with Independent Thinking
    by Marshall Goldsmith - August 24, 2018
    “Most of us see the world the way we are, not the way it is.” My friend, Chris Cuomo, journalist and news anchor on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, and I spent an afternoon recently discussing a variety of topics, including what we see happening in the world today. In this short interview I asked Chris about his focus on not just changing behavior, but changing perception. I asked him to explain what that means to...

    by Lindsey Pollak - August 21, 2018
    For the first time in history, we now have five generations in the workforce, with employees ranging in age and experience across six decades. How do you manage multigenerational teams with such diversity and possible differences? The good news is that it might be easier than you think, since most generations want essentially the same things in a workplace, including camaraderie, interesting work and respect (and I am betti...
  • If we were having coffee today
    by Melody Wilding - August 21, 2018
    Do you ever wish you could have coffee with the bloggers and people you follow online? Because, let’s be real, many of us follow the lives of our “internet friends” more than our real life buds these days. Blogger Jess Lawlor does “virtual coffee dates” where she shares details of her life. Jess Lively (a podcaster I adore) also does a version of this called “Things I’m afraid to te...
  • What the Colors You Wear Say About You!
    by Carole Kanchier - August 20, 2018
    Colors you wear may affect your mood as well as how others perceive you. Work environment colors also matter. At a subconscious level, colors affect people in different ways. Colors can send positive or negative messages. Using colors effectively to dress, decorate your office, or design your website can put you ahead of the competition. Research on the psychology of color demonstrates that colors evoke emotional, behavi...
