  • When You Know It Is Time to Go
    by Sherri Edwards - January 11, 2019
    You may not remember exactly when you stopped being excited about getting to work and tackling the day’s challenges. It may have started as a gentle feeling of reluctance – sleeping an extra ten minutes after the alarm went off, or choosing to stop and get a latte on the way to work, even though you were already running late. A few extra z’s helped and a double mocha frappée was a good distraction f...
  • Communicate Beautifully: How to Present Your Ideas Powerfully and Inspire Your Audience to Action
    by Melody Wilding - January 8, 2019
    A few weeks ago, I ran a reader survey. One of the top concerns I heard from my readers were fears about getting your ideas across clearly and powerfully.

    This month, I was honored to be interviewed for an Oprah Magazine piece by Celia Fernandez on It’s Time To Stop Saying I’m Sorry and how it hurts your confidence to say you’re sorry when you’re not. It got me thinking in greater depth about the crushing habit I see in myself and in so many other women I’ve worked with of saying they are sorry when they are actually feeling something very diffe...

    You’ve had a few days off or maybe more, and getting back into your regular work routine may be challenging. You may forget passwords, feel like another coffee break, a longer lunch with friends.

  • The Employee Benefit That All Generations Want
    by Lindsey Pollak - January 4, 2019
    There’s no question that the multigenerational workplace encompasses a host of styles—from Gen Xers like me who love email, to Gen Z which is just as happy communicating via Slack. And although I believe we can learn from one another’s differences, I am always on the lookout for unifying commonalities that all the generations can agree on. Thanks to Capital One’s 2018 Work Environment Surveyresul...

  • End of Year Gift Giving
    by Debra Wheatman - December 24, 2018
    I dread the end of the year. There are endless office parties and niceties that, although technically optional, feel mandatory. For example, I am invited to my department’s holiday party, the company-wide holiday party, and another product team’s holiday party. Both my team’s and my product team’s parties require that I bring a $25 grab bag gift. In addition, one coworker is collecting donations of...

    by Carole Kanchier - December 24, 2018
    The holidays can be an enjoyable time—but not for everyone.
