Don’t trap your workers in an “open office”

employees-working-in-an-open-office

I’ve been working from my home for the past 20 years, a situation for which I am extremely grateful. It has all the advantages you could imagine. There’s no stressful, time-wasting commute. I control of my environment and have the flexibility to set my own schedule and take breaks without raising eyebrows. Plus I’m always […]

globe-on-desk

Those of us who have spent our careers in global industries used to face the “not invented here” challenge of resistance to ideas from the outside.  Americans traipsed around the world trying to convince their international counterparts that they had all the answers related to marketing and technology.

Forward-thinking organizations aren’t anxious about the future of work. They’re excited. Why? Because these organizations have already figured out how to thrive in the face of the skills shortage — and how to attract, engage, and retain great employees despite the war for talent.

La creatividad puede mejorar los resultados de los proyectos, o no

Un nuevo libro titulado “How to steal fire” subraya  algunas de las falacias que hay detrás de la denominada “creatividad”. La verdad es que esta cualidad no puede atribuirse a los equipos, sino a las personas que lo integran. De hecho, el trabajo en grupo puede llegar a tener efectos negativos en los resultados de […]
