  • A learning experience over coffee

     A learning experience over coffee
    The "I Just Work Here" Internship Program — should such a thing ever exist — would be the gold standard of temporary employment. First off, as an intern to America's most beloved workplace advice columnist, you'd be given the title "America'...
  • Motivational office music from Groupon founder? Hardly

    Motivational office music from Groupon founder? Hardly
    I've been saying for some time that what's missing from rock music are hip workplace references such as "shareholder value," "culture of transparency" and "metrics." Well, thank God somebody finally listened. Andrew Mason, who founded Groupon and then...
  • Words of wisdom for graduates

    Words of wisdom for graduates
    I didn't give any college commencement addresses this year. Administrators probably assumed I had already been scooped up by the biggies — Harvard, Yale, The Iowa School for the Perpetually Perplexed — and didn't bother to ask. Regardless, I...
  • Workers build charity to help one another

    Workers build charity to help one another
    I spend most of my days toiling in the fields of workplace discontent, hoisting the yoke of America's office imbroglios, looking up fancy words and praying I don't run out of hyperbolic ways to describe my job. But this week I take a break from the...
  • 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,"...
  • Work assignment: Just be human

    As regular readers of this column know, my last vacation involved a cactus and the unfortunate perforation of my buttocks. (Thank you for all the sympathy cards.) So I'm pleased to report that on a recent trip to Disney World — aka "Mickey Mouse's...
  • New year, new boss -- same old fear

    New year, new boss -- same old fear
    The workplace is a lot like football. I say that not because it's true, but because it's a handy way to justify the hours I spend watching football. Also, it allows me to write off nachos as a business expense. But this week, the football-workplace...
  • Liar liar, officepants on fire

    Liar liar, officepants on fire
    That's a good point! (No it isn't.) I'd be happy to join the team! (I'd rather be eaten by wart hogs.) Your cake is delicious! (Thanks for the food poisoning, Julia Child.) These are but a few examples of the lies we tell at work. Most aren't...
  • 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"...
  • How to connect with your employees

    How to connect with your employees
    When I see a companywide email from the boss, I, like most employees, assume it's an announcement of a promotion —me to senior vice president of awesomeness. If not that, then perhaps a salacious press release detailing how a co-worker I dislike...
  • Is your career a work of art?

    Is your career a work of art?
    In 1971 — the year I was born — Bob Dylan wrote the lyrics to a song that would one day become an inspiration for me, in the workplace and in life. The song's called "When I Paint My Masterpiece." It was first recorded by The Band, and if...
