Why Leaders Should View Themselves as Servants

Show your employees you really care about each and every one of them. Success will follow. Image credit: Shutterstock Twenty years ago, I received a unique gift. This gift impacted my career by introducing me to a servant leadership model I’ve tried to emulate since. I was living in Seattle and had taken off for Christmas Eve. It was a typical December afternoon in the Northwest -- cold and rainy -- and I was out on my front porch with my young daughter, sprinkling homemade magical glitter oats along the path for Santa’s reindeer that night. My little g

How Targeted Marketing Can Improve Your Brand's Efficiency

When trying to connect customers to your brand, you simply can’t make everyone happy. It’s bad marketing to even try. By its very nature, marketing is all about targeting the right customer for your product, and then creating a brand that they can specifically buy and buy into. The notion of a “right customer” inherently means that there’s also a customer who’s “not right.” In its most simple form, it’s called targeting. Target the right customers with the right message at the right time, and you just might have a shot at

5 Email Templates That'll Give You the Courage to Reach Out to People You Admire

By Stacey Lastoe Making small talk with strangers is one thing. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone by speaking up in a meeting full of important people you don’t know is another. And putting yourself out there and extending a “Hello, hi, you’re awesome” note to someone you admire is yet another one completely. Sometimes, though, it’s the practice part of this equation (and not necessarily the resulting correspondence) that counts. Here are five templates to help you contact anyone you admire:   1.

What Recruiters Are Really Thinking When They Hear These Cliche Interview Answers

By Richard Moy   It feels like everyone has job search advice for you when you’re looking. And many of those people mean well. But too many times, their “interview tips” are outdated, stale, or flat-out wrong. For example, my Dad used to tell me not to turn down any job that pays me enough to make rent. I know this is true because when I was a recruiter, I used to hear the same responses over and over again. And that means there are a lot of well-meaning people out there giving really cringe-worthy tips. And in my experience, candidates who parrot the

Human beings watch out: when it comes to a work-life balance, our species may prove the exception to the rule. A recent study by the Missouri University of Science and Technology found that ants—insects famous for their industrious nature—exert less effort in pursuit of maximum returns. Studies show that overworking decreases not just the quality of life, but also the quality of work. They also show that overworking is, paradoxically, more common in societies that don’t need to work harder for survival. Indeed, the Japanese word “karoshi,” which means &ldqu

3 Habits That Make Hard Workers Look Like Bad Listeners

By Nina Semczuk We’ve all experienced frustration when speaking with a bad listener. And if you regularly deal with one at work—your boss, colleague, or direct report—well, it can actually get in the way of your productivity. Maybe it’s a missed deadline or unincorporated feedback—whatever it is, you know how crucial good communication skills are. Knowing that, have you ever stopped to think about your own listening skills? I know I, for one, never realized how often I interrupt with questions and comments until the day one of my bosses told me &ldqu

4 Terrible Things You Tell Yourself When You Start Something New

By Kat Boogaard When you tackle a new challenge, you operate with the assumption that it’s likely to be, well, challenging. Very few of us try our hand at something totally foreign and expect to knock it out of the park right from the get-go. That’s realistic and practical, right? In your moments of clarity, you get that. But, that doesn’t mean your brain is always on the same page when presented with something new and difficult. In fact, more likely than not, it goes down a completely opposite path. Instead of boosting you up to grab that new opportunity by the

5 Times You Need to Bite Your Tongue at Work (if You Care About Your Reputation)

By Kat Boogaard Speak up. Make your opinions known. Let your voice be heard. Have you been on the receiving end of advice like that before? Me too. We’re often encouraged to be vocal with our thoughts and insights in the office. After all, you have valuable contributions to offer—and, it doesn’t do you any good to keep them to yourself. Making sure that you’re heard at work is a good thing. But, are there ever times when you’re better off keeping your lips zipped? As a matter of fact, yes. Here are five situations when you should go against that &

It’s Not in Your Head: Daylight Savings Time Is Ruining Your Life

By Richard Moy Without much warning, Daylight Savings Time rears its ugly head every year and takes away an hour of previous sleep from your weekend. And if you’re like me, you’ve probably had hundreds of people tell you that it’s not a big deal. “It’ll all even out eventually,” they say. “You’ll get used to the time change before you know it, so stop your whining.” But alas, it’s not just you! In fact, there’s actual science to backup the fact that Daylight Savings Time can impact your ability to do your job (well
