  How to Cope Effectively With Discomfort at Work
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
There’s no way to prevent change and the discomfort that comes along with it, especially in the unpredictable 21st century business world. What you can do, though, is learn to be at peace while chaos swirls around you. When I entered the business world for the first time, I took my Type-A self with me. I was accustomed to executing, perfectly, everything I wanted to do. The thought of my company having a mind of its own ter...

  Are You Teaching Your Employees to Fish?
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
Teaching your employees to be self-sufficient benefits the productivity of the whole team. As I write this, the New York Times has just reported on a 30-year-old man who shot his rich dad because the father had the nerve to decrease his allowance a few hundred dollars. The dad had been paying the son’s pricey Manhattan rent and was also giving him spending money. He cut the latter down a bit and paid for it with his life....
 
  Let's End the Collective Death by Conference Call
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
It’s time to end our collective “death by conference call.” According to new InterCall research on workplace conference call behavior, 82 percent of employees admitted to focusing on other work or non-work distractions while on a call. Rob Bellmar, executive vice president of conferencing and collaboration at InterCall, recently offered some great tips to Harvard Business Review about ending conference call abuse. Here are...
 
  Survey Shows Project Managers Are Stretched to the Brink
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
New Workfront research shows project managers are so slammed that they are unable to focus on the most important aspects of their work. According to Workfront’s new Project Management Survey, conducted in late 2014 with 384 North American PMs, project managers are being inundated with too much work, lack of visibility into the work being done, and the use of disconnected tools to do the work. As a result, they are left with...
 
  Research Proves That Delayed Responses Hurt You
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
Instant ecommunication equals sky high expectations. I’ve talked before about how responsiveness – or lack thereof – can make or break your reputation at work. Typically, I complain about people who never answer emails unless there’s something in it for them at that moment, or who take weeks to do so. However, it turns out that most people’s definition of responsiveness is even stricter than I would have thought. It turns...
 
  This Leading Productivity Killer is Not What You’d Expect
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
Overwork is creating a vicious cycle that results in net losses. During the recession of the late aughts, organizations laid off a ton of employees. Many of them didn’t replace these people, but the amount of work remained. Nearly seven years since the recession began, individual American professionals are feeling the fatigue of doing the jobs of two or three former colleagues. In their State of Workplace Productivity...
 
  One Day Hiring? What a Concept!
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
John Sullivan is one of the most respected HR thought leaders in the world. I have been reading and citing his ideas forever, and love getting his articles through my ERE.net subscription. John tends to put forth ideas slightly before they catch on in the mainstream, and that’s why my interest was piqued when he introduced the single-day hiring process. We all know that hiring takes too long. By the time your organization g...
 
  Will the Internet of Things Displace HR?
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
The latest tech trend is the Internet of Things (IoT), and if you’re like me, you didn’t know what it meant until you were reading a blog post one day (possibly this one). The IoT is what will happen when any device with an off/on switch can be connected to the Internet and to other devices. Technology analyst firm Gartner has predicted that in the very near future, there will be nearly 30 billion connected devices, forging...
