What an honor to interview Wai Wai Nu, a modern-day hero. #Rohingya
(WNN) Myanmar, SOUTHEAST ASIA – Wai Wai Nu didn’t know she was being arrested when she was being arrested. She was an 18-year-old studying law, and in her mind she thought authorities were taking h...

Controversial thought for the biz world? What's your take?
Steve Jobs and Walt Disney were driven by their inner critic. If you're going to block out the critics, you must master how to wield the one inside you.

Careful! Our latest read at The Modern Team just might 🔥 up your team to finish the year strong. Enjoy! #DoWork
True mastery is reached the hard way — in such small increments that you don't realize it's happening. But what is the hard way?

My latest for the brilliant team at +Catalyst Athletics. Special thanks to editor +Yael Grauer! #fitness
When I began training clients in 2008, the world of mobile fitness apps didn’t exist. Some clients would log their progress in an online journal or in an Excel spreadsheet, but that was the exte

Our latest at TMT is a glimpse into an empathy collapse, and a call for rebuilding. I'd love your thoughts on this one, +Ryan Yeoman and +ManagementRadio #Empathy
"Empathy is the quintessential skill for the 21st century workplace." Here's what empathy looks like in the Third Era of Management.

Collaboration is good, right? #FutureOfWork
Conventional business wisdom tells us to crush our silos and pursue collaboration whenever we can. Here's what can happen if we do that.

Hi All, the group creator here. I've been away for some time, writing and working on other projects. I want to share with you my latest post because it's an interview with Wai Wai Nu, a voice for the Rohingya, "the most persecuted people on Earth." They are routinely trafficked, and many times that is the least of their worries. Enjoy the interview, and thank you for keeping the spirit of this group alive during my absence! #Rohingya #HumanTrafficking

Should you hire your friends? Do you want to be great friends with your colleagues? This makes a damn good case for doing both. #biz
Hiring friends can kickstart your company's growth, and create the foundation of trust needed for success.

"But instead of having this top-down system defined or at least acknowledged, an implied structure develops: one which is much harder to change, and infinitely more frustrating for the people working within it. Confused, directionless employees create a sort of ad-hoc system of self-management, which is catastrophically non-communal and ultimately results in some Lord of the Flies-level chaos."

Flat organization is the hot idea right now. But is flat organizational structure a way to increase productivity, or a cultural rebellion?

I've probably been to Horn O Plenty ten times at this point and can honestly say that it's my favorite restaurant in Pennsylvania. I say this as a foodie who has traveled all over the world and all over Pennsylvania (my home state), as a person who tries to be a socially conscious consumer, and as a person who realizes the importance of the Slow Food Movement, particularly in Pennsylvania. The owners, Jeff and Mandi, are as knowledgeable, hardworking and compassionate as they come. And the food is spectacular - the attention to detail, the creative mixed with the traditional, the way the menu changes twice daily depending on what's been harvested. Find a way to get there if you can; it's worth the experience. Good for earth, good for body.
