Under Review

The annual ritual of employees assessing themselves on a company form, managers giving their own evaluation, and the two meeting to discuss the results may be passé. Or at least deemed inadequate at some companies.

Once the gold standard of tracking employee performance, the annual performance review has lost its luster. Some companies are finding ways to increase its relevance and effectiveness, while others are eliminating it entirely.

Who's the boss

The traditional manager who is a planner, visionary, and master of delegation, rather than a co-collaborator, may be becoming less common.

The clothing we decide to brave the world in is a personal choice. If an employee is customer-facing, the company can give specific directives. But if an employee is not meeting with customers, it’s hard to require much.

Building a Mentally Tough Culture

A mentally tough culture is built on trust, faith in the competence of others, effective and reliable leadership, high expectations, group solidarity, putting the team first, and finding intrinsic enjoyment in accomplishing the mission.

Digital Learning Platforms: The Future of Global Education?

The most significant benefit of digital learning platforms is that they break down barriers to education. Delivering courses online enables people in different geographic areas to take the same course at the same time, even collaborating on projects together.

When No One Else Is Looking

Character means doing the right thing at all times, regardless of whether someone else is looking.

High-Potential vs. High-Commitment Employees
