How To Win An Argument And Strengthen Your Career

Making progress in your career means finding a careful balance between personal drive and team spirit. On the one hand, you’re ambitious, full of ideas, and you want prove to the world that you deserve a shot at success.

16 Mindful Work Breaks (And When To Take Them)

Taking a break should not be about switching your mind off, but rather about changing gears. Your soul is a complex thing: it thrives from being fed as much as from being rested – that’s what a good night’s sleep (and the occasional power nap) are for!

When Robin Sakamoto became dean of the Faculty of Foreign Studies at Tokyo’s Kyorin University in April 2014, she was only the second foreign woman to be awarded a deanship at a Japanese institution.

[…]

The value of role models such as Dean Sakamoto is not to be underrated. Surprisingly, only 15% of full professors in European institutions are women, against a female employment rate of 36% working in universities overall. This suggests that if there is already a shortfall of women in academia, much more encouragement is needed to help them rise to the top.

How to stay productive when facing a deadline

Most of us work pretty hard to ensure an even schedule throughout the working week: five or more days of calm, measured – if industrious – productivity. Yet most people will also recognize the simple truth that, from time to time, work tends to get bunched up together. Whether it’s a fast-approaching deadline, a backlog of tasks, or an upturn in the market, everyone has to face up to striving onwards in the face of fatigue every once in a while.

Take Control Of Your Work Routine With Restful, Meaningful Breaks

Even the very best of professional coaches can occasionally be caught neglecting to take care of themselves. After spending so much time and energy on others, at the end of the day, it’s tough to find anything left for yourself. Just as you help clients work towards their goals and to be more mindful, you should remain aware that you can do a better job—and stay closer to your personal plan—if you remember to take care of yourself.

9 Surefire Ways to Make Your Customers Happy

There is an oft-told legend about how Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos likes to make sure there is an empty chair at every company meeting: the chair represents the customers, so the most important ‘person’ is always ‘in the room.’ It’s the kind of visual stunt that sets apart great leaders from good ones, and also makes for a nice anecdote if you plan on being the sort of person that has biographies written about them!
