    Here's One Thing You Shouldn't Do When You Work From Home

    One of the most attractive things about working from home is the opportunity to wear whatever you want to the "office." But while it's tempting to snag an extra hour of sleep by simply rolling out of bed and turning on your computer, you could be making a mistake by working in your pajamas — even if no one is around to judge you for it. In an article published by Inc. magazine, small-business advisor Marla Tabaka writes that taking a shower and wearing something respectable every day helps her feel more professional and take her work more seriously. Indeed, there is at least one study that suggests dressing up can improve not only the way others perceive your skills, but the quality of…

    US Government: LinkedIn Needs To Pay $6 Million In Overtime To Hundreds Of Employees (LNKD)

    LinkedIn has agreed to pay nearly $6 million to 359 employees in back wages and damages for unpaid overtime, says the U.S. Department of Labor. LinkedIn tells us that the employees involved were primarily salespeople. We don't know if each employee gets an equal share on that, but it divides out to about $16,713 apiece. LinkedIn earned praise from the Labor Department for cooperating with the investigation. But it still could be considered an embarrassing situation for a company in the human resources business. A LinkedIn spokesperson tells us: Talent is LinkedIn’s number one priority, so of course, we were eager to work closely with the Dept. of Labor to quickly and equitably rectify this situation. This was a function of not having the…

    7 Management Strategies From Some Of History's Greatest Generals

    Napoleon Bonaparte created an empire stretching across Europe from 1804 to 1814. Before his exile, return, and then ultimate defeat in 1815, Napoleon was a brilliant general who understood the dynamics of leading a large group to victory. "The moral is to the physical as three is to one," Napoleon once said. "He meant that his troops' fighting spirit was crucial in the outcome of the battle. With motivated soldiers he could beat an army three times the size of his own," writes Robert Greene in his book "The 33 Strategies of War." Greene highlights specific ways some of the world's greatest generals, from Napoleon to Alexander the Great, managed their troops. You can use these same tactics to boost the morale of your employees…

    13 Things You Should Never Say In A Job Interview

    Aside from submitting a resume full of typos, the quickest way to be eliminated from consideration for a new job is making an avoidable interview blunder — like putting your foot in your mouth. "Every year we see more surveys and polls come out listing some of the crazy things that candidates do or say in job interviews," says Michael Kerr, an international business speaker and author of "You Can't Be Serious! Putting Humor to Work." "So, it's very clear that some people still haven't received the memo: What you say in an interview matters immensely. It's your audition!"  Hiring managers use the interview to gauge your fit for the job, your creativity, your ability to think on your feet, your emotional intelligence,…

    Will blocking social media make you more productive?

                  My favorite part of summer has become looking at vacation photos on Facebook. I love seeing where my friends are traveling and how they are enjoying their summers. And, I admit, I often log onto Facebook during the work day to take a peek at who just posted a cool vacation pic? Doesn't everybody? Social media has become a part of the world we live in, including the workplace, but the jury’s still out on whether employers should care about employee time spent on Twitter and Facebook and whether they have a real need to ban it in the workplace. A recent survey by Proskauer Rose shows nearly 90 percent of companies use social media for business purposes. And on the Ohio…

    QUIZ: Are These Quotes From Communist Leaders Or CEOs?

    Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates are exemplars of capitalism. Che Guevara, Leon Trotsky, and Karl Marx are pillars of communism. Each gets called "revolutionary" — so what do they have in common, aside from massive visions and egos?  All of them try to change the way regular people live in society, either by putting a computer on every desk or overthrowing the bourgeoisie.  Maybe that's why the capitalist leaders' language sounds nearly indistinguishable from the communists'. There's that and the fact that leaders — capitalist or communist — can lean on vague, euphemistic language. To illustrate these points, we've put together the below quiz. See if you can spot which quote came from a Marxist and which came from the corner office.  SEE…

    The World's 50 Best Business Schools

    Is an MBA that costs two years of your life and $150,000 really worth it? With increasing global competition and a tough job market, business school may hold the key to getting ahead — if you go to the right one. For our fifth annual survey of the World's Best Business Schools, we asked thousands of professionals from around the world who have experience hiring MBAs to determine the best business school. They came back with a clear favorite: Harvard University. Survey participants rated the reputation of the graduates from top business schools around the world on a scale of poor to excellent (1 to 5), with excellent ratings used as a tiebreaker. We included responses only from professionals who said they had experience…

    How To Address Being “Forced Out” During a Job Interview – Ask #HR Bartender

    There are several articles out there about how to deal with being fired from a previous job when you’re in a job interview. But what if you’re weren’t technically fired? That’s what today’s reader question is all about: Hi Sharlyn. I love your blog. You share insights into HR best practices with intelligence, practicality and kindness. Good stuff, especially for those of us not in the profession. My question for you is this: I recently was forced out of a position and am now job hunting. I was not fired; I left of my own volition, but it was clear my boss wanted me to go. It got very rough and I was having panic attacks. It’s best that I’ve moved on…

    The First Step to Changing Your Life

    You know you want to change, right? But you don’t know where to start. You may find yourself thinking… “There are so many paths I could take and I don’t know how to choose.” “I hardly have enough time to stay sane, let alone…insert your dream here…where can I possibly start?” “I know I’m not happy here, but I don’t know what will make me happy” If so, I know how you feel. I’ve been there. Obese, full of illness, working in a corporate job that left me cold, half of a failing marriage…I’ve been faced with the desire to change, yet the sheer terror of feeling out of control and not knowing where to place my feet first.

Top Performers: All Roads Lead to Mindfulness

0

Buried in work, your anxiety builds as you notice key deadlines are fast-approaching. You can’t wrap your head around just one task, so you do multiple — finding in time that you forfeited your opportunity to truly deliver results that matter to you and your company.

In our wired world of 24/7 communication, can we truly quiet our minds and produce great work without falling victim to insurmountable stress?

In short, the answer is: yes. Mindfulness — intentionally focusing on the present in a nonjudgmental way — works.

When Harvard professor Bill George presented his ideas on authentic leadership in 2011, he had the opportunity to ask the Dalai Lama, “How does one become mindful?” To his comfort, the Dalai Lama responded that it involves daily mindful practices.

We spoke with leading experts in mindful leadership who incorporate this technique into their professional and personal lives: ordained minister and physician Dr. Chris T. Pernell, author of Letters to My People: Inspirational Essays, Poems and Affirmations and founder of My Body & Me, a health and wellness initiative; owner of Lotus Yoga and Lotus in Action Jennifer Kohl; and Reiki master Deborah Flanagan, owner of Center for True Health.
