    A Startup CEO Just Summed Up The Tremendous Pressure Of Silicon Valley In One Sentence

    Silicon Valley is a stressful place and few people know that better than Bastian Lehmann, CEO of Postmates, an online delivery service for food and other real-world items. Lehmann spoke on a panel at Data Driven Conference in San Francisco Thursday and shared an insight about how taxing work in Silicon Valley can be.  "The food people order on Postmates gets unhealthier each day of the week,” he said. On Monday Lehmann sees users order the healthy stuff, like kale. But by the end of the week it's fries and burritos. "On the weekends, it's crazy," said Lehmann. While stress eating isn't exclusive to the tech industry, it definitely seems commonplace. Lehmann's point says volumes about how stressful jobs in Silicon Valley can be, where everyone…

    Anticipate The Future With Evernote CEO Phil Libin At IGNITION 2014

    Phil Libin started Evernote with the simplest idea: Remember everything — or, more precisely, everything that matters. Today, the company’s sleek suite of apps and services help you capture thoughts and ideas, snap photos, grab audio, and clip information, then access it from anywhere. With more than 90 million users around the world, Evernote has a $1 billion-plus valuation. (Sorry, Filofax.) But Russian-born Libin is not stopping there. Evernote’s business of the future is built around what he calls hyper-awareness — taking everything it knows about you and what you’re doing and using it to anticipate what you’ll want to know next. Spooky? Yes, indeed, but “anticipatory computing” is already happening every time you hit search. For extra points, Phil’s an…

    Does Work-life Balance & Success Have a Point of Diminishing Return?

    There are many ways to become overwhelmed in this world, and greater success is one of them. Dana shows us a mind trick to managing our energy and reducing our sense of overwhelm. Watch a video on the subject and download an InPower worksheet to practice this little trick on the InPower Coffee Break Community. – InPower Editors It’s summer! Which for many of us means juggling work and various forms of fun (i.e., family, vacations, weekend trips etc.) Work-life balance? Ha! Summer is one of those times when I begin to feel – for myself and my clients – that “success” often comes with a personal price tag. I’m not talking about the price the greedy people pay in the…

    How a Mindset Shift from Fear to Love Transformed My Business

    “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” – Rabindranath Tagore I was recently telling a friend of mine a story about a potential coaching client I’d spent over six hours with before making him an official offer of a coaching programme. I explained how he’d told me he needed to think about it. It had been nearly a month since our last conversation, and I’d heard nothing. “Leah, you need to be careful. So many people out there in the service industry get taken advantage of. They do hours and hours of work for free and never get paid. You ought to be charging up front.” Just…

    7 Timeless Lessons From Bill Gates' Favorite Business Book

    Bill Gates recently revealed that his favorite business book is "Business Adventures," a 1969 collection of New Yorker articles by John Brooks that illustrate the formation of the modern American corporation. Gates says he asked Warren Buffett back in 1991 what his favorite business book was, and Buffett responded by sending his personal copy of "Business Adventures." Gates fell in love with the storytelling. He writes: Brooks's work is a great reminder that the rules for running a strong business and creating value haven't changed. For one thing, there's an essential human factor in every business endeavor. It doesn't matter if you have a perfect product, production plan and marketing pitch; you'll still need the right people to lead and implement those plans. We've…

    'Indefinite Idling,' 'Redirected,' And 46 Other Euphemisms We Use In Place Of 'Fired'

    George Orwell wrote that "political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging, and sheer cloudy vagueness."  For the "1984" author, euphemism was a method by which powerful people cloaked violent acts. The more vaguely you described something violent, the less awful the violence sounds. That trend has carried over to corporate America and Silicon Valley, where CEOs and HR departments invent all sorts of creative language to cloak the fact that people are getting fired. One example: When the CEO of Fab announced it would fire 100 people in its Berlin office last year, he called the layoffs an "opportunity to start your new job search immediately" in an internal memo. As the New York Times has reported, there are at least 48 examples of euphemisms for getting…

    8 Tips For Getting To Inbox Zero

    A disorganized email inbox can be one of the most frustrating aspects of any job. There's nothing quite like the feeling of hopelessness and anxiety that comes with logging on for the day and seeing a quadruple digit number of unread messages. Fortunately, there are some fairly easy ways to keep on top of things. Below, we've outlined seven simple ways to get to inbox zero and enjoy the blissfulness of a clean slate — at least every once in a while. 1. Get a head start when you have a free moment.

    How women can began law firm partners - and have a life

    As a young lawyer, Tiffani Lee found a partner who believed in her ability and helped push her up to the top ranks of Miami’s Holland & Knight. Most often, the opposite is true: Organizational mechanisms at firms push out women and people of color. But in a room full of women and minority lawyers, I heard some great advice on how to change that pattern. Here’s an employer and employee guide for how to navigate the challenges that lead people to leave. Inclusion: Don’t leave women and minorities on the fringes. Amy Furness, a shareholder with the lawfirm of Carlton Fields Jorden Burt in Miami, says having someone in a leadership role who recognizes and shows a commitment to diversity by…

    15 Real Tech Company Interview Questions You Will Probably Be Asked (And How To Answer Them)

    There's a scene in the 2013 move "The Internship" where the two laid-off sales guys (played by Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson) are asked one of those legendary Google brain teaser interview questions. The question was: You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and your mass is proportionally reduced so as to maintain your original density. You are then thrown into an empty glass blender. The blades will start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do? Answer: Lots of variants but one is that you jump out. According to the square-cube law your strength-to-mass ratio should have changed, allowing you to be much stronger for your size and jump really high, like an insect. That's a real question that Google…

    Here's The Top LinkedIn Tip From Its Director Of Product Management

    Kevin Simon, LinkedIn’s director of product management, leads the team responsible for the site's Identity and Search products. Naturally, he's a LinkedIn whiz, and in a recent interview he shared one of his favorite tips for members. "The number one thing I’d like members to know is that you’re limiting your prospects and doing yourself a disservice by only updating your profile when you’re hunting for a job," he says. "Eighty-percent of opportunities are going to those who were discovered when they weren’t actively looking." Professionals who update their profiles are more likely to be called for enriching, if not strictly job-related, opportunities like nonprofit board positions, speaking engagements, or mentorship.  "Having the ability to highlight everything from what you’ve accomplished to what you aspire to do,…

    The Beatles’ Top 11 Tips to Reinventing Yourself

    What advice would you give your 12 year-old self if you could go back in time?  I know I’d warn little Susan not to drink peppermint schnapps at 3AM at that Halloween party in college. I’d also tell her to start learning Italian, since she’d need that language to speak to her future husband. And I’d most definitely tell her to start playing the guitar, that it would come in handy when she reinvented herself as a performing singer/songwriter. “Huh?” She’d say.  “When I’m a what?“ We’re taught to do what we love, and once we find that “thing”, that’s pretty much all we do for the rest of our lives. But I’ve found that’s just not true. I am the Mother of Reinvention…in…

    How Your 'Locus Of Control' Drives Your Success (And Stress)

    Do you think that the events in your life — getting hired or getting fired, falling in or out of love, moving from one city to another — are due to your actions or some outside power?  How you answer predicts your job satisfaction, stress levels, and how high up you're likely to climb in an organization.  Psychologists call it your locus of control. Here's Stanford psychologist Philip Zimbardo's take:  A locus of control orientation is a belief about whether the outcomes of our actions are contingent on what we do (internal control orientation) or on events outside our personal control (external control orientation). Essentially, where you believe the locus (Latin for "place") of control lies in your life says a lot about how much…

3 Smart Ways to Stand Out by Serving Others

0

Throughout your college years, one of your business professors or mentors probably advised you that it’s a “dog eat dog” or an “every man for himself” world. While on some levels this notion may be true, you can actually use this truism to your advantage.

Instead of being bolted down to your personal career agenda, you should widen your career path by becoming what I call a “career servant.”

For simplicity’s sake, a career servant is someone who serves others. By practicing career servanthood, you can engender many positive results. In fact, this altruistic strategy can lead to ultimate career satisfaction because you can help your organization advance, your colleagues succeed and yourself grow — all at the same time. When you serve your organization and others, you will easily build positive alliances and networks that can add immense value to your career.
