    Trimming the stupid from your management plans

     Benefit of downtime a real no-brainer

    Analyzing your quitting fantasies

    In trust we trust
    Imagine me walking into a corporate executive's office. Me: How important is trust to the health of your workplace? Executive: Why, it's critical. Awkward pause. Executive: Who are you? And why are you in my office wearing pajamas? Me: I'm...

    Buzzwords are evil and must be stopped
    I was dynamically engaging one of my fellow content marketers in the company brainstorming arena the other day, when I came up with a win-win value proposition for in-house onboarding of new talent to help us velocitize our organic campaigns. It's...

    Job 'tours of duty' growing shorter
    So, job candidate, where do you see yourself in five years? Yes, I know that's the worst interview question ever invented. But what's your answer? What's that? It sounded like you said, "Elsewhere." Oh, that is what you said? In five years you see...
  • Unleash your inner Buffy on office vampires

     Unleash your inner Buffy on office vampires
    Good news. The vampires are back! About a year ago, I introduced you to "emotional vampires," a term created by a West Coast clinical psychologist to describe all the nasty, terrible, irritating people who drain our will to live. Albert Bernstein...
