  Sweeten the Bad Apple On Your Team
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2014
I’ve been getting a lot of reader emails about the pervasiveness of negativity in the workplace. I can understand where people are coming from. After all, the business world is still reeling from the effects of the recession, and many employees are overworked, frustrated and stressed out. Perhaps you have a mostly terrific team made up of individuals who are upbeat, motivated and dedicated to doing the best job possible. But t...
 
  How the Latitude Assessment Changed My Life – in Reverse
by Alexandra Levit - Mar, 2014
College career counselors often ask me to recommend assessments, which is kind of funny I never took any kind of test to inform the decision about a major or a career. I’d taken AP psychology in high school and did well in it, and so I picked that. I didn’t take a test when I graduated from Northwestern University either. I just knew that pursuing psychology would take at least four more years of school, and I wasn’t having...
 
  4 Ways You’re Derailing Your Career
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2014
The worst kinds of career gaffes are those you do unintentionally. It’s easy to see why reaming out the boss or taking an unscheduled vacation might get you into hot water, but more subtle self-destructive behaviors can be just as damaging. Here are a few to watch out for. 1. You’re all business at the office While it’s essential to be productive and possess a strong work ethic, you don’t want to be perceived as th...
 
  Boomers: How to Work with a Team Younger Than Your Kids
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2014
Baby boomers everywhere are lamenting the same workplace development. All of a sudden, the people working in their offices are younger than their children, who are now approaching the ripe age of 30. And somehow, the same millennial traits of self-assurance and eagerness that were cute in their kids have become annoying in their teammates. If you are in this boat, fear not. Here are a few ways to work effectively with those tw...
 
  5 Ways to Uncover Your Roots
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2014
My friend Pam Slim, who has been blogging about meaningful careers since 2005, has a fantastic new book out called Body of Work. The book helps every reader find the thread that ties their unique story together and has been praised by everyone from Seth Godin to Nancy Duarte. I recommend reading the whole book, of course, but I especially enjoyed the section on identifying one's roots. Your roots are the purpose, belief...
 
  Duke University Study Shows Why People Prefer Dead End Jobs
by Alexandra Levit - Dec, 2013
When I was a child growing up in Maryland, we visited relatives in New York and Philadelphia often. Back in the eighties, the toll booth operator job on the New Jersey turnpike was the national symbol of boredom. I remember sitting at the booth longer than we had to just so that the poor operator could have some human conversation. Albert Camus might have been thinking of the toll booth operator when he wrote The Myth of...
 
  Use Your Brain to Build Better Relationships at Work
by Alexandra Levit - Dec, 2013
According to Judith Glaser, the CEO of Benchmark Communications and the author of the new book, Conversation Intelligence: How Great Leaders Build Trust and Get Extraordinary Results, the key to success in life and in work is to prime your brain for trust, mutual respect, and partnership. Based on advances made in the neuroscience field over the last decade, Glaser’s framework involves understanding what kind of conversations...
 
  7 Ways to Maximize Commuting Time
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2013
The average American professional spends over an hour a day commuting. For most, that time involves listening to music, reading the paper, staring out the window, or sleeping. However, whether you drive or take public transportation to the office, your goal should be to leverage your commuting time so that you can spend fewer hours working. Here are some recommendations to that effect. 1. Listen to industry podcasts or...
 
  Why You SHOULD Pull an All-Nighter
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2013
My editor at Penguin just sent me a new book she worked on called The 24-Hour Genius: Unlocking Your Brain’s Potential with Strategic All-Nighters, by Eric Epstein. The title and the cover of the book are very effective in that I understood the central premise as soon as I picked it up. And I immediately thought: “oh no they didn’t.” How can this be good advice? I have never pulled an all-nighter. Yes, you read that...
 
  Are You an Introvert Who Needs to Be More Social?
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2013
Over at the Fast Track blog, we received the following question: My manager knows that I want to become a manager myself at some point, and is working on mentoring me in the skills I’ll need. One piece of feedback he’s given me is that I need to become more comfortable in semi-social situations (networking lunches or event dinners, and the like). I’m not a terribly social person by nature, so I tend to feel a bit shy and o...
