It's Time to Become the Boss: Individual Contributor vs. Leader
by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2014
In writing my new book, Becoming the Boss: New Rules for the Next Generation of Leaders, I found that one of the biggest mistakes new leaders make is assuming the skills that got them promoted will be the ones they use in their new management roles. They aren’t. Being great at something doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be great at leading other people to do what you’ve excelled at. Being a great teacher doesn’t guarantee yo...
Is Your Personal Style Hurting You Professionally?
by Bernie Frazier - Oct, 2014
Everyone has a personal style, but not everyone is aware of how their personal style affects their interactions and relationships with others.

They either go into ‘grit your teeth and suck it up’ mode (after all, work IS a four-letter word, right?), or they do a swan di...
Getting Over Post-Project Depression
by Robin Fisher Roffer - Oct, 2014
Ever get that empty feeling when you’ve worked intensely on something big and then it ends? During the first quarter of this year I worked on three major projects that had me zigzagging the country through the dead of winter to New York, LA, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Tampa and Atlanta.

Don’t Demote Yourself in the Office
by Terri Tierney Clark - Oct, 2014
It was when I called my naval officer father by his first name that he told me I was “bordering on insubordination.” No joke. I wanted to laugh, but even at age 13, I wasn’t that stupid.
