  • Finding your inner work identity

    Finding your inner work identity
    Even if you're off, Labor Day seems an appropriate time to think about work. Not so much the stresses and drags of it all, but the actual things we do as working people. Most of the time — either from busyness or as victims of rote behavior...
  • Taking a moment to unplug, focus on happiness

    Taking a moment to unplug, focus on happiness
    I went to Mexico and read a book by a Canadian author that made me think about work in America. My vacations tend to be kind of weird that way. With a week off, I felt the need to unplug from the screens that dominate our working lives, so I settled...
  • Attack of the killer office chairs

    Attack of the killer office chairs
    I'm sitting down while writing this column. That's a pretty daring move on my part. You see, I recently spoke with James Levine, author of the new book, "Get Up! Why Your Chair Is Killing You and What You Can Do About It." He schooled me on the scary...
  • Helping parents is good business

    Helping parents is good business
    The term "work/life balance" has become ubiquitous, yet most American workers remain decidedly unbalanced. That's not to say there aren't companies doing the right thing by offering employees flexibility, paid leave and other accommodations. Those are...
  • Your bad: The power to admit your workplace goofs

    Your bad: The power to admit your workplace goofs
    Hillary Clinton recently told Diane Sawyer of ABC News that when she and her husband left the White House in 2001, they were “dead broke.” That was, to put it mildly, an ill-advised statement, given that the Clintons had earning potential few...
  • Looking ahead to wearable tech in the workplace

    Looking ahead to wearable tech in the workplace
    The past four columns have been more serious than consumers of my worldly workplace wisdom have come to expect. Perhaps it's a sign of maturity, or maybe an indication that I've begun viewing the working world with greater reverence. Whatever the...
  • Don't mock incompetent managers

    Don't mock incompetent managers
    Most workplaces have at least a few people who seem to have risen up the company ranks solely on the power of their own incompetence. They're the co-workers we look at and say: Who the heck made him boss? Who put her in charge of this project? What...
  • Respecting ideology in the workplace

     Respecting ideology in the workplace
    Donald Sterling — the for-now owner of the Los Angeles Clippers — has set the bar for awful bosses at a height where the air gets thin. His racist comments to his girlfriend — recorded for all the world to hear — earned him an...
  • How social media might make you more efficient at the office

    How social media might make you more efficient at the office
    I may be America's most-beloved workplace advice columnist, but I am not a master of efficiency when it comes to work. I'm easily distracted and routinely succumb to the siren song of social media. (I'll give you a moment — it's always hard to...
  • I, robot employee

    I, robot employee
    When I envision the idealized workplace of the future, there are three things I see: 1) I'm not wearing pants. 2) I'm not physically in the workplace. 3) I'm on my couch. Sadly, our modern-day work culture continues to discriminate against pants-...
  • 10 forbidden work behaviors for managers

    10 forbidden work behaviors for managers
    Communist Party leaders in a county in southwestern China recently received an interesting list of "10 Forbidden Behaviors." I first read about this in The Washington Post, but several news reports have detailed the new rules for Pengshan County...
  • Conformity vs. authenticity in the office

    Conformity vs. authenticity in the office
    If I could command every working person in America to do one thing, it would be: “Give me the rest of that doughnut.” If I could make a second command — after I finished the doughnuts — it would be: “Please be yourself.&...
