  • Buzzwords are evil and must be stopped

    Buzzwords are evil and must be stopped
    I was dynamically engaging one of my fellow content marketers in the company brainstorming arena the other day, when I came up with a win-win value proposition for in-house onboarding of new talent to help us velocitize our organic campaigns. It's...
  • Stand by your brand

     Stand by your brand
    I expect that doctors in the delivery room will soon hoist up newborns and proclaim, "Congratulations! It's a brand!" That's the world we live in, folks. We're no longer just people — we're warm-blooded versions of Nike or Budweiser or, in my...

    Psst: Be more flexible. Pass it on
    I've read about how important it is to be agile in today's workplace. So I tried typing that first sentence with my toes while balancing on one arm atop a cubicle wall. I fell twice and sprained my ankle. Fortunately, that's not the kind of agile that...
  • Do emotions have a place in the office?

    Do emotions have a place in the office?
    If everyone was just like me, the entire office would be made of Belgian chocolate and we'd watch movies all day, stopping only occasionally to nibble on the walls. Unfortunately, my workplace is like everyone else's: made of bland, inedible materials...
  • More doughnuts, and other 2013 office resolutions

    More doughnuts, and other 2013 office resolutions
    The good news is, the Mayans were wrong, and we get to start a brand new year. The bad news is, we will have to spend most of that year working. (Thanks for nothing, Mayans.) To keep you from feeling too bummed out about the lack of an apocalypse, I'm...
  • Panic at the office party

    Panic at the office party
    It's holiday office party season, that magical time of year when co-workers spend time together having forced conversations over festive snacks that aren't as good as they were before the economy tanked. Fun! Based on extensive research, here is a...
  • Men, it's in the bag

    Men, it's in the bag
    Because I'm a very important man, I carry very important things, including: a smartphone, an iPad, gum (fresh breath is critical when you're important), a huge wad of cash that indicates importance, a slingshot (to ward off unimportant people) and a...
  • In trust we trust

    In trust we trust
    Imagine me walking into a corporate executive's office. Me: How important is trust to the health of your workplace? Executive: Why, it's critical. Awkward pause. Executive: Who are you? And why are you in my office wearing pajamas? Me: I'm...
  • Analyzing your quitting fantasies

    Analyzing your quitting fantasies
    Hi there, readers. I'd like to talk about your fantasies. Not THOSE fantasies, you pervs. This is a family workplace column. I'm talking about your "quitting fantasies" — the daydreams we have about the most satisfying way to exit a job. Say...
  • Is the Working Families Flexibility Act really flexible?

    Is the Working Families Flexibility Act really flexible?
    If we lived in a perfect world, doughnuts would be vegetables, Matthew McConaughey would have my abs and I would have his, and work would be a high-paying activity that involved naps. Also in a perfect world, a thing called The Working Families...
  • What makes a happy worker happy?

    What makes a happy worker happy?
    The workplace advice columnist has only one natural enemy: the happy worker (Laborius contentus). This rare — some might say mythical — creature poses a threat to anyone who dispenses workplace-improvement tips for a living. But rather...
  • Overcoming obstacles: Or, what I learned from a cactus

    Overcoming obstacles: Or, what I learned from a cactus
    I was climbing a gorgeous rock formation in Arizona the other day, holding my 6-year-old's hand, when my foot slipped and my butt made acquaintance with a cactus. This was not one of those tame, domestic cactuses. It was an ornery, feral succulent...
