Could a robotic workforce be the secret to work/life balance?  
Imagine a world where a robotic workforce doesn't take our jobs, but instead allows us more flexibility and interaction.

Business leaders share what happens when right and wrong isn't so clear.
Should you tell a client you messed up? Take back an employee who lied? Leaders share how they made the toughest decisions of their careers.

"We didn’t want to be in a situation where we look back on the company we've built two, three, four years from now, and what we’ve done is institutionalized a homogenous culture."
Leadership at a small tech startup lamented the lack of diversity in the candidate pool, so they took a more proactive approach.

Nice - Perhaps I should go to the arcade more - feel like i've already proven myself though - but fighting through that disoriented feeling is good! I think it's getting harder for me to find new challenging projects - The projects I once enjoyed that would challenge me for a weekend are now too simple - But the new projects I'm taking on are possibly too much!

"...there was no preconceived notion back then that what someone who works in privacy is going to look like. There was no role model who was a male leader in that area."
The privacy industry has managed to close the gender wage gap. How did they do it and what can we learn from it?

Our shift from bureaucratic to distributed leadership took nearly a century. 
Workplace hierarchies have undergone some dramatic shifts over the last 100 years, but no titles? That's going to take a bigger adjustment.

Companies might be smart enough to not say “Class of 2007 or 2008 preferred” on job postings anymore, but they've found other ways to discriminate against older workers.

Can trauma, stress, and even nightmares be passed down from generation to generation? 
A body of research shows that your DNA may contain a biological memory of the stress your grandparents endured.

I'm now giving career advice on +Glassdoor 
Having an “off” day is one thing; feeling like you’re constantly churning with no end in sight can exhaust you and result in a life of misery. In an era where
