Sexual harassment. #metoo. Gender communication in the workplace. However you label it, it’s become a topic may companies and organizations have placed on the front burner - especially in the past few months.

When you think about K-12 education, you might think about academics, homework, athletics, and other education-related topics.

99 Joanna Stern - In the Elevator With

12/11/2017
More
The elevator. Certainly not one of the great venues for communication. When most of us are in an elevator, we usually look up, look down, or look at our phones. Having a conversation in an elevator is rare and often uncomfortable. In October, the Wall Street Journal changed that when it launched an online video series that has quickly become popular with viewers and leaders. It’s called “In The Elevator With.” Each episode features a short conversation - around two minutes in length - that...

More
Some young professionals living outside the United States today see the American M.B.A. - the Masters Degree in Business Administration - as a pathway to a job, and life, in the U.S. Many of those international students enroll in full-time M.B.A. programs where they quit their jobs, leave home, and study full time on campus for two years. International students are important to U.S. business schools. Among other things they bring diversity, a global viewpoint, and tuition dollars to the...

More
When it comes to your life and your career, how are you doing? Would you say you are flourishing? Most people don’t use that term to describe their life, career, and mindset. In fact, most of us are chronic evaluators. We spend much of our time judging ourselves, and when we do that, it becomes difficult to flourish. Our guest today helps professionals and students get to a deeper place - to a consistent level of productivity, fulfillment, and resilience. A place of human flourishing. Dr....

Millennials, the generation whose members are between the ages of 16 and 38, make up the largest percentage of the population. By 2020, researchers say almost half of all US workers will be Millennials.

95 Ryan Malone - The Remote Workforce

11/7/2017
More
Over the past few years, organizations have wrestled with the concept of remote employment - having employees who work from home. Much has been written about the effectiveness of the remote worker, and how to lead a remote - or virtual - team. A recent Gallup study revealed that more Americans are working remotely, yet not all industries and organizations have embraced the concept. As many companies struggle to find the sweet spot, one organization has gone all in with a 100% remote...

What makes an effective CEO effective? For Bill Crawford, CEO of United Bank, it means realizing you don’t have to know the answer. Instead, you need to know where to find it. Crawford credits much of his success to the talented people with whom he surrounds himself. He’s quick to say he’s far from the smartest person in the room. Thanks to his leadership and round-table culture, where everyone’s encouraged to participate, United Bank has gone from $1.7 billion to $7 billion in assets. As...

She said when you position the boss as the organizational “parent” you place unnecessary limits on the partnership.

One of the top priorities for many professionals is cultivating a positive relationship with the boss or direct supervisor. Doing so it often referred to as managing up or communicating up.
