Last night I was talking to my “guyfriend” (silly word I know, but it’s what I call him) and he said, “It occurred to me that every time I’m with someone new, I do a better job at listening if I see myself as the interviewer.”  I laughed. He writes beautiful people profiles for magazines …

Know What Your Job Is

I recently saw a clip of Bryan Cranston (aka Walter White) in which he offered up a dose of wisdom that makes real sense. And while his insight is geared toward actors, it really applies to all of us: “You’re not going there to get a job. You’re going there to present what you do.”  Which got me thinking. …

A few of us were recently discussing the different ways people handle things around the office — from timelines to brainstorming, conflict to contributing in meetings.
