      27 Questions To Ask Instead Of “What Do You Do?”

      You probably already use a "to-do" list, and chances are you've at least heard of its close cousin, the "got-done" list. But the two approaches to managing your time and tasks aren't created equal, and the research is steadily piling up on behalf of the latter.

      5 Creative Ideas For Throwing An Office Holiday Party People Will Love

      Holiday office parties can be maligned and/or dreaded for a multitude of perfectly understandable reasons. Sometimes the camaraderie is forced and employees resent the "gift" of socializing with people they wouldn’t want to otherwise. Sometimes the party’s so cheap it makes people feel unappreciated (I remember one workplace where we were "rewarded" for our efforts with an employee potluck from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in the lunchroom).

      Not long after founding his company, H20.ai in 2012, Sri Ambati walked into the office one day, looked around, and had a staggering, yet embarrassingly obvious realization. Of the six engineers working at H2O, a platform for open-source predictive analytics, there wasn't a single woman. Ambati knew he had to make a change, and fast.

      Analyzing The Subtle Bias In Tech Companies' Recruiting Emails | Fast Company

      A year after Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella backpedaled from a gaffe at a women's tech conference and announced a major employee diversity push, Microsoft reported in November that roles for women in its tech positions had actually gone down. At the same time, roles for African Americans and Latinos had barely budged, with them holding just over 6% of tech jobs at the company. Results for other major technology firms, despite their public pledges, aren't much better.

      Starting a business is not for the faint of heart. According to the Small Business Administration, only about half of all new businesses will survive for five years. For those who do stick it out, dreams of getting rich quickly will be supplanted by the reality that sweat equity doesn’t translate to billions of dollars overnight. In fact, one study of 158,000 startups found that those businesses that did survive experienced plenty of growing pains as they became established.

      5 Simple Ways to Harness The Power Of Gratitude At Work

      We all know the good feelings that come with being acknowledged for something that we did. Those feelings result in wanting to do well, and we continue to look for ways to give our best effort.

After giving the play-by-play, Sharon laughed and remarked that Bob was lucky he didn't get fired, since others hadn't fared so well after making similar bold moves. Everyone else chuckled uncomfortably, but Bob didn't smile.
