In this brief article written by Celia Swanson, former executive Vice President of Walmart, she discusses her past management experience with a very toxic workplace situation that fell under the radar for her for quite some time. She outlines what went wrong and how to (as well as who can) step up and work toward resolving the situation before it may be too late.
“A single person with a clarity of conscience and a willingness to speak up can make a difference”
In this Harvard Business Review article, Michigan Ross Professor Emeritus Robert Quinn tells the story of Dr. Tadataka Yamada, an executive who made milestones in changing his organization from one with an extreme financial drive to one that had regained its conscience and had become a leader in the medical research world.
Many people wonder whether they are at the right job, in particular, if they are at the right job to position them for their optimum career trajectory. Read on for some questions everyone should consider:
If there is one thing that makes the job hunt awkward, it’s money and how to handle the conversation of wages and salary. Fortunately, or perhaps, unfortunately, this is a shared awkwardness. While this means that we’re not alone in this struggle, it also may mean that learning to adequately market your abilities is also challenging. Here’s some advice for what to stop doing right now, and how to handle future conversations more effectively.
While meditation, yoga, and mindfulness are great tricks to have up your sleeve, they’re not going to be the cure to your burnout. Sure, they’ll alleviate the strain for the moment in practice, but they won’t solve other issues that may require some at-work adjustment. Doctor Linda Girgis makes some great points here as she speaks about what contributes to this critical problem and what can be done about it.
When you think of someone who is engaged with their work — who has a clear sense of purpose and feels safe and confident in their role — what do you picture? Someone who works on a team, or alone? Does the person have one job, or two? How often does she work remotely, if at all? And does having a pet somehow factor in?

This lighthearted video discusses the composite findings of a their study.. “Barbara,” their fictitious most-engaged-worker, is built up of all of the variables that the study found to be present in the most highly engaged workers.

In a study done by Leadership IQ, CEO, Mark Murphy and his team followed 20,000 new hires during their first three years of employment.
The results were startling: 46% of the participants failed in their job during the first 18 months due to ATTITUDE. Read on to learn more about why and what your organization can do to have better results.
It certainly makes for a compelling title, yet when I read on, what I hear is that people responded poorly to a woman making a “joke” that essentially reiterated that same old thinking that women are not as smart or capable as men and that married women have to “ask their husbands” about everything they do.
To me, that’s not at all surprising. I’d have to see the rest of the questions and more detail about the research design to believe that this headline is really accurate.
