    More doughnuts, and other 2013 office resolutions
    The good news is, the Mayans were wrong, and we get to start a brand new year. The bad news is, we will have to spend most of that year working. (Thanks for nothing, Mayans.) To keep you from feeling too bummed out about the lack of an apocalypse, I'm...
  • Weighing employee wellness programs

    Weighing employee wellness programs
    As a couch enthusiast of some renown, I'm generally opposed to any form of mandated physical exertion. Our bodies know it's time to exercise when the guilt of not doing so outweighs the pleasure of eating ice cream in a comfy chair, or when said chair...
  • Is your workplace ageist?

    Is your workplace ageist?
    Suppose I'm a business — and what a handsome business I'd be! — that's interviewing people for a job opening. There are two finalists, one 27 years old, the other 52. They have similar qualifications, albeit the older candidate has more...

    Psst: Be more flexible. Pass it on
    I've read about how important it is to be agile in today's workplace. So I tried typing that first sentence with my toes while balancing on one arm atop a cubicle wall. I fell twice and sprained my ankle. Fortunately, that's not the kind of agile that...

    A field guide to spotting office jerks
    Imagine the workplace as a forest. (Or as an office full of cubicles if you're a park ranger.) We walk through the forest each day surrounded by creatures (co-workers). Some are kind like squirrels and deer and animated talking bears. But others, like...
  • Reality show does a number on unemployed

    Reality show does a number on unemployed
    (Editor's note: The CBS reality series "The Job" was canceled after this column had already gone to press. We are certain it was a coincidence. And that's all we have to say about that.) Early in the first episode of the new CBS reality show "The Job,"...

    We wanted to make you aware of a special half-off Trib Nation discount that will work for four upcoming career-focused TribU classes -- on researching the decision to get an MBA; on more effective workplace conversations; on better time management; and on...
  • Drop the manager-speak and just be human

    Drop the manager-speak and just be human
    When I first received a copy of "The Manager's Phrase Book," I laughed. I laughed long and hard. The book is a collection of more than 3,000 canned phrases a manager can use in different situations, rated on sliding scales such as "casual to formal"...
  • Mighty Big Aspirations

     Mighty Big Aspirations
    You often hear people say that when the job market is bad, it's a good idea to go back to school and boost your academic credentials. I have disregarded that advice because I fear it might interfere with my TV watching, but many folks — whether...

    A game plan to combat office bullying
    Bullying is rarely simple. We're seeing that play out in graphic detail with the Miami Dolphins football team. Offensive lineman Jonathan Martin fled the team and accused fellow lineman Richie Incognito of bullying him, saying Incognito left a racist...
