      How To Harness Your Emotions For Making High-Risk Decisions

      Nobody in business has ever avoided the uncomfortable necessity of sizing up a risk. A startup that takes a round of equity funding with unfavorable terms may keep their payroll safe in the short term at the expense of diluting equity in the long term. An individual who quits a job risks waiting a long time for a better one. A company may hire a new employee who has great potential but is untested.

      A few weeks ago, Mattel announced that its iconic Barbie doll would be getting the biggest redesign since its launch in 1959. For the first time, Barbies will now come in different sizes of petite, tall, and curvy. "Curvy Barbie" has already been lauded for showing young girls a more realistic range of body types.

      The Future Of How You Watch TV Could Change This Week | Fast Company

      Cable and satellite TV companies are not popular, consistently ranking near the bottom of customer satisfaction studies. One of the reasons is that Americans spend nearly $20 billion per year to rent set-top boxes from pay-TV providers, according to a recent Senate report. So when a proposal to open up competition against the oft-reviled set-top boxes was issued by FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler on January 27, the cable providers didn't receive many sympathy notes.

      The Test Of Leadership That Most Leaders Are Failing

      Let me introduce you to the biggest little problem in leadership: Mega-Problem Denial Syndrome (MPDS). As often in life, it’s the little problems that turn out to be trickier and more troubling than the big ones—like postponing having that troublesome lump scanned because you’re too busy/scared/lazy. Certain challenges may seem distant and therefore small today, yet the pervasive hesitance to even acknowledge them is standing squarely in the way of leadership.

      A working mother I know recently told me that toggling between parenting a toddler and the demands of managing a department and a staff of three is a tightrope walk. Some days, everything worked smoothly, boosting her confidence in her career path and her childrearing choices.
