Boosting Stress Resilience for Employees | with Andrew Shatté

“Stress is the new fat. It makes us sick, depletes us emotionally, and diminishes our quality of life.”
~ Jan Bruce, co-author of meQuilibrium

Just like managing weight, managing stress is about becoming aware of personal choices and making better ones, and rewiring thought patterns so that an individual’s habits sustain well-being rather than sabotage it. Learning resilience gets to the root cause of stress and unhealthy behaviors by helping people challenge and adapt their thinking.

Multipliers — How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter | with Liz Wiseman


Are you a genius or a genius-maker? We’ve all had experience with two dramatically different types of leaders. The first type drains intelligence, energy, and capability from the people around them and always needs to be the smartest person in the room. These are the idea killers, the energy sappers, the diminishers of talent and commitment.
The Aspring (Future) Leader | with John Lawler

Is your site set on a new leadership role?

Perhaps you’re the Director of Finance, and you’ve just been tapped to become the new CFO. What do you need to change now that your former peers will be reporting to you?

Or maybe you’re not yet in a position with formal authority, but you know the leadership spot will be open in the near future, and you want to position yourself now. How do you get on the radar screen for internal promotion? How do you become the winning candidate? And most importantly — since 40% of new leaders fail in the first 18 months — how do you ensure your success and longevity if you get the job?
The Leadership Gap | with Lolly Daskal

When successful people begin to feel uncertain or challenged at work, the one thing they want to know most is why things are going wrong after they have gone right for so long.

Leaders tend rise to their positions relying on a specific set of values and traits. But in time, every executive reaches a point when their performance suffers and failure persists. Very few understand why or how to prevent it.
How to Inspire Lifetime Loyalty | with Lee Caraher

As millions of millennials and the even younger GenZers come into the workforce with very different expectations and definitions of loyalty, companies need to shift to make the most of those workers’ energy, skill sets, and incredible potential. Those companies that shift now for the long game of allegiance will have a strategic talent and efficiency advantage over those that don’t. While many organizations and Boomer leaders long for some of the workplace dynamics of the past, one expectation — that employees will demonstrate their loyalty to their employers by staying at their jobs for a long time (or as long as the employer wants them) — is particularly unrealistic for business today.

How to Find Your Authentic Voice | Joshua Spodek

To lead and influence others, whether as a workplace leader or as a thought leader, you need to develop an authentic voice. For example, let’s say you are a CEO delivering a speech to your employees, or a functional VP writing an email to your staff, or a department head presenting recommendations to the C-Suite. When you speak or write, are you clear? Are you true to your values, passions, and personality? Are you representing the real you, and do people understand and trust you? Are you effective not only in prepared communications, but when you speak “off the cuff” or extemporaneously?
