  • Winning at Working: What Are We Busy About?
    by Nan S. Russell - September 24, 2018
    Once upon a time, a prince and princess lived in stressful palace, surrounded by a stressful village, inside a stressful land. They knew it was stressful because everyone said it was. Their parents, the king and queen, worked from sunrise to sunset hearing issues from their kingdom, weighing the requests, and appropriating the collective harvest to the people of their land. The people also worked from sunrise to sunset, doi...
  • In the Scheme of Things Who Are You Becoming
    by Nan S. Russell - September 21, 2018
    Her name is Mallory. At least it is for now. She’s the amateur sleuth in my new cozy mystery — or technically I should say my first cozy mystery. While I’ve written non-fiction books on leadership, trust, and self-development topics, and hope to write more, I’ve started a few mysteries over the years but never finished them. Mallory’s story might just be read by me. Who knows? But, I’m at...
  • Work Sabbatical: Taking a Break From the Job
    by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - September 20, 2018
    Have you ever wanted to hit the “pause” button at work – getting away for longer than your allotted vacation time allows? University professors have traditionally taken sabbaticals to recharge and refresh, and now more and more American workers are doing the same. Many employers, including MeetUp, McDonalds, Pantagonia and Morningstar, to name a few, offer sabbaticals – allowing their employees the o...
  • 4 Things I Learned About You from My 2018 Reader Survey
    by Melody Wilding - September 18, 2018
    Recently, I asked you (my readers!) to take a survey so I can learn more about what you struggle with when it comes to mentally and emotionally thriving in your career. I like to do this because it’s one of the best ways to get real, helpful feedback from the people I care about serving the most: you. This year I decided to do things a little differently. Instead of asking you boring, surface-level demographic questio...
  • Leading with Passion Power: The Art of Humor Intelligence and Higher Power Humor
    by Mark Gorkin - September 18, 2018
    The Stress Doc begins a series of essays on a leadership tool not always recognized: the capacity for purposeful and playful (and, yes, sometimes provocative) humor. The series begins by placing humor within the context of his “Passion Power” Model. The Doc begins to lay the ground for the motivating power of psycho-humor, followed by a definition of humor. Finally, the essay begins to flesh out two new concepts: H...

He is the author of five amazing books, including his most recent Stay Hungry and Kick Burnout in the Butt. Fascinated by Steve’s unique take on va...

    by Carole Kanchier - September 17, 2018
    Are you wondering whether you should make changes in your career - and life? Are you satisfied with your job? Responding “yes” or “no” to the following questions, may help you get a clearer picture of whether you should consider a job shift. 1. Is your body sending you messages? Do you have lingering colds? Trouble getting out of bed on a work day? 2. Are you constantly thinking, “I can har...
  • It's Not About Me, It's About The Job
    by Marshall Goldsmith - September 17, 2018
    My great friend, Chris Cuomo, journalist and news anchor on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, has some ideas about a concept I use in my coaching. I call it “showtime.” What it means to me is exemplified by some of the greatest leaders I’ve ever met. These great leaders show up rain or shine. They don’t complain and whine, but like a kid on Broadway show up and do their part. I was curious to hear what C...
  • 11 Guidelines for Influencing Top Decision Makers
    by Marshall Goldsmith - September 12, 2018
    “The great majority of people tend to focus downward. They are occupied with efforts rather than results. They worry over what the organization and their superiors ‘owe’ them and should do for them. And they are conscious above all of the authority they ‘should have.’ As a result they render themselves ineffectual.” - Peter Drucker You can make a positive difference, even when you do not...
