The Power in Focusing on Solving Problems as a Leader
A study at MIT revealed an interesting and potentially undervalued form of leadership: one led by problem-solvers who never intended to become leaders. This unique group of ‘leaders’ didn’t set out on a path to be a leader or manager. Instead, they set out on a journey to find and fix problems.

Generational Differences in the Workplace

Generational Differences in the Workplace
In a simple black frame, on a shelf in my office sits a picture that never ceases to put a smile on my face. In it, 4 women stand side by side, faces full of toothy grins in front of my childhood home. From left to right stand a woman born in 1902, another in 1929, the third in 1957, and lastly, a gangly legged teen born in 1979.

How Managers Can Learn By Doing
With job creation on the rise, the increased need for new managers follows. Unfortunately, in recent data collected by the Harvard Business Review, the average age of first-time managers is 30, while the average age managers are receiving leadership training is 42.
