Tue, 2014-11-11 11:54

Dans la société nord-américaine, beaucoup de gens misent sur le couple pour être heureux. La relation amoureuse devient le baromètre de leur vie, un passage obligé dans l’évaluation de leur réussite en tant qu’être humain. Or, cette dépendance à l’autre pour être heureux amène bien souvent son lot de déception, de souffrance, d’anxiété et de stress.

¿Queremos una universidad burocrática o innovadora?

Tue, 2014-11-11 11:48

En los últimos años hemos asistido a una serie de cambios en la universidad española, entre los que destaca su creciente burocratización. Si bien es verdad que cuando hace una década se propusieron e introdujeron medidas que subrayaban la meritocracia, o promulgaban mejorar y normalizar en cierta medida los procesos de trabajo a través de organismos como la ANECA, en general estas fueron muy bien recibidas por la comunidad universitaria.

Why so many bosses are bad

Tue, 2014-11-11 10:47

For a long time, one of Canada’s largest residential landlords, Canadian Apartment Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (CAPREIT), admittedly did better at managing its properties than its staff did. Its workers were disengaged and unhappy, and their managers were not providing the right sort of feedback. “People didn’t feel they were being recognized for their efforts, they didn’t feel any sense of accomplishment, and the work they did was kind of just seen as, ‘Oh, that’s your work,’ ” says Jodi Lieberman, vice-president of human resources.
