13 Workplace Communication Tips Today’s Young People Need to Know

If you’re a recent college graduate or young professional, the first thing you probably did when you landed your first real-world gig was text your best friend, post the news on Facebook, or tap out 140 clever characters to tell the Twitter world about your accomplishment. What you probably didn’t do was pick up the phone and call each of your buddies or craft an email announcement to send to all your friends and family.

Who wouldn’t want to make money by doing a job that doesn’t really feel like “work”? Who wouldn’t want to turn a lifelong dream into a reality? But if you’re hoping (or holding out) for your dream job, this author is here with some tough love: What you’re good at should trump what you’re passionate about.

Trivia game shows are irresistible opportunities to test our intellectual prowess and demonstrate knowledge. However, while most people consider trivia a hobby or a playful way to pass idle time, trivia can be far more than just fun and games.
 

Why Small Teams Win

The “Two-Pizza” Rule

     Your organization is forming a new task force, cross-functional team, focus group — whatever you want to call it. And as usual, it’s time for the never-ending quest to “loop people in.”

Health and Fitness

By Graeme Cowan
 

In a hypercompetitive global economy, organizations must be “on” 24/7, which is taking a harsh toll on employees who are becoming disengaged, stressed, and depressed. “The mental and emotional state of today’s workforce is abysmal,” says Graeme Cowan, a survivor of depression and author of Back from the Brink: True Stories and Practical Help for Overcoming Depression and Bipolar Disorder.
