A company in New Zealand experimented with a 4-day week

A company in New Zealand experimented with a 4-day week

Happy, committed and productive. That is how most companies would like their staff to be. But few companies would go so far as giving their workers one day off a week in order to achieve it.  That, however, was the approach of the New Zealand will writing company Perpetual Guardian. The firm has just completed an eight week trial, giving their 200 or so employees an extra day off every week, while all pay and employment conditions remained unchanged. The results speak for the

Five Rude E-mails You Send Without Realizing It

By Travis Bradberry, Jan 4, 2018 Even the most likeable and well-mannered among us can still look like jerks in an email. Writing an email that comes across just like you do in person is a fine art. During a conversation, you adjust your tone, facial expression, gestures and posture in order to fit the mood of what you’re conveying.

Steve Jobs Knew Tim Cook Would Kill Apple’s Innovation By Focusing on Sales and Marketing

When we lose a great innovator or leader, there’s a big void that forms in all of us. This longing for what we lost causes us to become infatuated with finding “the next so and so” to fill their shoes--like the numerous players that have been called the next Michael Jordan, but haven’t lived up to the legacy. Unfortunately, no matter how well that person can emulate their predecessor, it will never be the same. Innovation has to come from a place of hungry desire to change the world in your

Leonardo da Vinci's Hand-Written Resume

"Before he was famous... Leonardo da Vinci was an artificer, an armorer, a maker of things that go 'boom'," writes Marc Cenedella, on his blog devoted to job searching and recruiting advice. "And, like you, he had to put together a resume to get his next gig. So in 1482, at the age of 30, he wrote out a letter and a list of his capabilities and sent it off to [Ludovico Sforza, regent, and later Duke,] of Milan." (The letter, it seems, made a lasting impression; Ludovico would become a longtime p
