  • A sincere message for the jobless among us

    A sincere message for the jobless among us
    It appears that on Dec. 28, barring unexpected political action that would amount to a true Christmas miracle, 1.3 million jobless Americans will stop receiving unemployment benefits. This is to those people: I'm sorry this is happening. I'm sorry...
  • Help! We're drowning in workplace advice

    Help! We're drowning in workplace advice
    It's pretty clear that if you have a job and don't write a book of workplace wisdom, your life is essentially worthless and will be forgotten the moment your carcass is laid to rest. I base that conclusion on the overwhelming number of work-related...
  • At the tone, please stop leaving messages

    At the tone, please stop leaving messages
    This is the process I go through when I receive a voice mail: 1. Sigh. 2. Consider ignoring it. 3. Become overwhelmed by guilt. 4. Press "voice mail" button. 5. Forget password. 6. Try again. 7. Listen to voice mail. 8. Sigh, louder. 9....
  • Connect the dots to better engage workers

     Connect the dots to better engage workers
    I enjoy power tools that go "VRRRROOMMMMM!!!" and hitting things with hammers, but that doesn't make me a handyman. I learned that quickly after becoming a homeowner. There are jobs I can do — painting, minor bits of plumbing, light carpentry...
  • Trimming the stupid from your management plans

    Trimming the stupid from your management plans
    Companies across this great land regularly implement policies that leaders claim will "foster greater collaboration" or "build synergy" or "incentivize innovation." I don't know what any of that means and doubt most leaders do either. But boy does it...

     Benefit of downtime a real no-brainer
    You're sitting in front of a computer screen, trying desperately to write the greatest workplace advice column in the history of the world and it's just not coming to you. Then you step away for a few minutes (hours) and occupy yourself with something...
  • There's nothing to F.E.A.R.

     There's nothing to F.E.A.R.
    It dawned on me recently that I've never provided my treasured readers with a concise dose of workplace advice that can be clipped out, laminated and hung on a cubicle wall. For a workplace advice columnist (America's most beloved), this is a gross...
  • Lessons in leadership from Pope Francis

    Lessons in leadership from Pope Francis
    America has an ample number of leaders, in the workplace and in politics. But unfortunately, what many of these leaders are actually doing is "leadIng." You'll note the capital "I." That's not a typo. We have politicians who don't so much govern as...
  • 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...
