What a Real Apology Requires

Joseph Grenny, Harvard Business Review, October 21, 2016

Most of what has been written about apologies is fundamentally manipulative, because the focus is on technique — on applying psychology to extract forgiveness from others, as in: "What do I need to say in order to get my boss/child/neighbor to trust me again?" This view of apologies is one of today's most pernicious assaults on trust. In this article, the author shares his thoughts on what a real apology requires. [...read more]

How CNN is ‘future-proofing’ itself

David Uberti, Columbia Journalism Review, October 13, 2016

On Wednesday, CNN launched a mobile app to curate a more personalized feed of business news. Last week, it hired away a crack team of BuzzFeed reporters who've frequently broken stories this campaign through archival research of historical interviews and video clips. Both developments—the creation of a digital product and addition of digital talent—point to a broader change that has come into clearer focus over the past year: It's not your father's CNN.

Younger adults more likely than their elders to prefer reading news

Amy Mitchell, Pew Research Center, October 06, 2016

When it comes to technology's influence on America's young adults, reading is not dead – at least not the news. When asked whether one prefers to read, watch or listen to their news, younger adults are far more likely than older ones to opt for text, and most of that reading takes place on the web.

How to Be More Assertive, According to Research

Eric Barker, Time, September 20, 2016

"Assertiveness is about controlling your behavior, not someone else's"

Research shows being assertive is that perfect Goldilocks balance of "just right." It helps you get the things you need while preserving relationships over the long term. But there's one problem... Nobody ever tells you what the hell "assertive" really means. How do you do it? How do you get what you need without being a jerk or a manipulator? Don't worry. Research has answers. [...read more]

What Not To Post on Social Media: 5 Questions You Need To Ask Yourself Before You Publish

Olsy Sorokina, Hootsuite, January 14, 2015

In the early years of social networks, we could hardly imagine a time when people would be getting fired over their social media posts. Now, a search phrase "fired over a Tweet" returns over 30 million search results on Google, all good examples of what not to post on social media. If you want to avoid getting in trouble with your boss, falling from grace in the the eyes of hundreds of fans, or costing your employer millions in legal fees, you should heed these warnings.

Developing Employees’ Strengths Boosts Sales, Profit, and Engagement

Brandon Rigoni, Ph.D. and Jim Asplund, Harvard Business Review, September 1, 2016

Should companies primarily focus on playing to the strengths of their employees or help them improve on their weaknesses? This question is particularly important today, given low workplace engagement and higher expectations from workers about what a great job entails.

Gallup has studied thousands of work teams and millions of leaders, managers, and employees for more than five decades. We've found that there's significant potential in developing what is innately right with people versus trying to fix what's wrong with them. [...read more]

What a Bad Decision Looks Like in the Brain

Emily Singer, The Atlantic, August 29, 2016

Humans often make bad decisions. If you like Snickers more than Milky Way, it seems obvious which candy bar you'd pick, given a choice of the two. Traditional economic models follow this logical intuition, suggesting that people assign a value to each choice and select the top scorer. But our decision-making system is subject to glitches. Since economics hasn't been able to explain irrational choices, this article looks to neuroscience for answers. [...read more]
