Thu, 29 Sep 2016 10:30 GMT

The sad story of ‘Big Sam’ Allardyce, the shortest-serving manager in English football history, is a classic example of someone falling foul of habit No.6 of a trusted executive - choosing to be humble.

Feelings vs reasoning

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 10:30 GMT

The hidden history of remote working

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 10:30 GMT

Forget Gartner studies and erudite articles in HBR, the way we work remotely today has come about through guesswork and trial-and-error. It was never planned - which is why organizations have a hard time dealing with it.

Overcoming diversity fatigue

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 10:30 GMT

Too many diversity initiatives fail because they’re based on a punitive, ‘shame on you’ posture. What we need is a strategic, hope-filled approach emphasizing what we all gain from more diverse and inclusive workplaces and communities.

What to say when your kid becomes a manager

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 10:30 GMT

I had one of those moments of intense pride followed by a blinding flash of panic this week. My kid has gotten her first real big-girl management job. There are a few things I’d like to tell her - but she won’t listen, of course.

What happens when no one is in charge?

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 10:30 GMT

Far from being insane or utopian, the idea that you can build a successful enterprise where there are no bosses represents an evolutionary leap in organizational design that may very well represent the future of management.

Ride your stress like a mule

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 10:30 GMT

Pushing your limits is what allows you to grow stronger, so if you find yourself feeling passive, it can make sense to dial your stress up a little. Get moving. Accomplish something small. Do something you enjoy. Then start again.

Office politics when you're not in an office

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 10:30 GMT

People who work remotely often view the absence of office politics as a real plus. But they’re wrong. An understanding of organizational and inter-personal dynamics is a critical part of that thing called ‘work’. You avoid such things at your peril.

Five ways to present like an Olympian

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 10:30 GMT

How stress can lower your cultural intelligence

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 10:30 GMT

Working with people from a diverse range of backgrounds is rewarding, but it can also be tough going. And the more you’re under stress, the harder it becomes and the more a small behavioral difference can become a major irritation.

The magic of early mornings

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 10:30 GMT

Time is the same for everyone. Yet time is used and experienced very differently. Some people make time, others are crushed by it.

Learning to play together

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 10:30 GMT

Even though we shared the same experiences, I think very different from my brothers. But that didn’t stop us learning to play together. So why screw up the little time we have on this earth with prejudices, hatred, and mistrust?

What color is your organization?

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 10:30 GMT

Bureaucratic, command-and-control management is rapidly becoming obsolete. And as distributed intelligence becomes increasingly prevalent, so a radically different new organizational form is emerging.

Interconnectedness: a blessing or a curse?

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 10:30 GMT

For a species that is often belligerent and territorial, it isn't surprising that human beings are finding the sudden interconnectedness brought about by technology sometimes difficult to handle.

Learning from Demosthenes

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:30 GMT

If you’re looking for a role model for how to conduct yourself as a business person and a human being, my vote is for a lawyer who pounded the streets of ancient Athens 2300 years ago. Yup, Demosthenes is my boy.

The music of leadership

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 10:30 GMT

Music is a powerful vibration. Too often our world seems filled with bits and fragments that don’t make sense. But then we hear the music that tells the story and our world feels coherent and whole again.
