      “The Industry Is Fundamentally Broken”: Women On Sexism In Silicon Valley

      To get an honest picture of the past, present, and future for women in tech, we sat down with five of the founding members of Project Include, an organization that works with startups to make their workplaces inclusive.

    2. As Millennials Demand More Meaning, Older Brands Are Not Aging Well

      This year, my agency Enso’s World Value Index scored 150 brands according to how a nationally representative sample of Americans identify the brands’ purpose, the extent to which the purpose identified aligns with their own values, and the extent to which it motivates brand advocacy and purchase. The results are strikingly different for different demographics. For instance, Americans over 55 years old (“boomers”) rate Newman’s Own the No....

      Four Questions This Founder Asks Himself After Interviewing Job Candidates

      I was reminded of that the other day tossing a ball to my toddler (yes, him). He dove away from the ball after being bonked on the head one too many times, and something dawned on me: Everyone’s afraid of the ball, just at different speeds. As a startup founder, I’ve realized it’s much the same with the level of uncertainty people can handle–one key trait among several that I’m always looking for in job candidates.

      Nine Simple Questions I Learned To Ask That Transformed My Career

      Early on in your career, you’re focused–quite reasonably–on skill acquisition. To get ahead, you need to get good at something. But once you’re an expert in a certain area, something funny happens: You may start asking fewer questions, worried that it’ll be seen as a weakness–an indication that you don’t really know what you’re doing. The more expertise you pick up, the more you have to lose, and the fewer questions you ask.

      You’re a consultant, freelancer, business adviser, or even a career mentor, and the person you’re trying to help just isn’t listening. Maybe it’s their job title that’s gone to their head, or maybe it’s just their personality, but whatever the reason, what you’re trying to share with them just isn’t getting through. You’re beginning to suspect that they aren’t really listening because they don’t really trust you–and maybe this is all a colossal waste of time.

      Introvert Or Extrovert? Here’s Another Way To Think About Your Personality

      “Sensitive fake extrovert.” That’s how Jade Lenier classifies herself. As a performer and public speaker, you’d take her for an extrovert, but in truth, says Lenier, “my extroverted outsides don’t match my introverted insides. Because I do love being around people, but I become overstimulated and overwhelmed by them and must retreat to my own corner of the world.” Is Lenier really just an introvert in the wrong career?

      This Is The Best Way To Avoid Making The Same Mistake Twice

      When things don’t go your way, it’s popular advice to think about what you could have done differently, or shake it off and move on. But what if that kind of attitude dooms you to make the same mistake again? A new report published in Journal of Behavioral Decision Making found that the best way to rebound and learn from failure is to lean into the pain. Simply reflecting on why something happened can lead to making excuses, which doesn’t help you avoid making a similar mistake in the future.

      “I have the dubious distinction of being an ambitious risk taker who also struggles with anxiety and depression,” I told the roomful of 200 successful women, some of whom had been my college classmates. “This has forced me to learn some very helpful coping mechanisms,” I said, but only after learning some unhelpful coping mechanisms. I was giving a speech at my alma mater, where years earlier, I’d had more than my fair share of panic attacks.

      How Instagram Became The Music Industry’s Secret Weapon

      To understand the power Instagram holds for the music industry, look no further than Beyoncé’s baby bump. If you were anywhere near the internet on February 1 of this year, you likely saw the now famous photo of the pregnant diva looking out behind a green veil. But the viral photograph wasn’t clandestinely shot for the cover of Vanity Fair, nor was the announcement of her pregnancy sent out as a press release to journalists. It wasn’t even a Facebook post.

      How To Be More Assertive At Work When That’s Just Not Your Personality

      Find it hard to advocate for yourself? You’re not alone. The personality trait that psychologists call “agreeableness” describes how motivated you are to get along with other people. If you’re highly agreeable, that motivation can sometimes prevent you from sticking up for your own interests. Anytime you ask for something at work, you run the risk that you’ll be told “no”–and possibly aggravate the person you’re asking. As a result, agreeable people may be put off from asking in the first place.

      This Is How Hubspot Trains Its Employees To Be More Empathetic

      For all the merits of “visualization,” when it comes to achieving goals, it only takes you so far. If I want six-pack abs, I’m not going to get it by daydreaming about a stomach of steel. I need to eat right and exercise right. I have to work hard at it. This is something we tend to forget when it comes to more abstract goals, the stuff you can’t actually stand in the mirror and see–like becoming more empathetic. But the fact is that developing empathy takes practice and hard work, too.

      I Went To The Gym For Cardio Training And Left As A Better Boss - The future of business

      When I sold my company a few years ago, I decided to trade the sweat of building a business for the sweat of getting in shape. It was time to develop muscle rather than a global enterprise. I assumed I’d be leaving behind the world of leadership–which had been the focus of my company’s business–even if only for the time being. But I couldn’t have been more wrong.

      What No One Tells You About Your Job Hunt

      I was at ease with the interviewers (a team of five! ), and felt we developed a strong rapport. I left the office sure I’d made a good impression–only to find out a few days later that they hired someone else. I was devastated and disappointed. But their rejection email emphasized it wasn’t that I was a bad fit, but rather that there was someone who was a better fit. This was a critical lesson for me.
